    I have had the Whirlpool AD75USTO since MAr 07 (Lowes)
    It ran fine for a year and a half and all f the sudden it started to trip the ciruit breakers. Doesn't matter which circuit I put it on?

    Any ideas?

Sorry, but your Model # doesn't match any Whirlpool Appliance in my data base. However, another company may have bought the rights to use the Whirlpool name on house brand that they sell. But, lets get to a solution to your immediate problem.

First turn OFF the MASTER ON/OFF Switch and unplug the unit from the wall outlet and allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing and cleaning the air filter. As, I suspect, the filter is dirty and may be clogged. Historically, this is one of the things that can cause a dehumidifier to struggle and not be able to keep up.

After you remove and clean the filter, remove the water collection bucket and look for the drain tube or hole that drains the water into the collection bucket. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie, that will fit into the drain hole or tube. Carefully insert the tube into the drain hole. Continue to push it in and you'll reach a bend in the tubing. Carefully push it past this bend, as far as you can. Then, while rotating the Zip Tie, pull it back out slowly. Be prepared for some water to follow. One word of caution - DO NOT use a wire coat hanger to clear the drain tube.

Reassemble everything and you should be good to go. If however, the unit freezes up again, the compressor may be low of refrigerant gas and it will need to be recharged.

Hope this helps you continue to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Unit will start and run for 5 seconds, then will blow a circut breaker on 20A. circut. This is a model AD75USTO Serial # QU2660438 AKA Whirlpool gold energy star


Hopefully, it's not a problem inside the unit that's causing the circuit breaker to trip. Is there another electrical appliance plugged into the same outlet or on that circuit that is ON and draws 15 amps of power? If so, that's the problem. If that's not the case, turn the circuit breaker OFF and remove the outlet cover, so you can inspect the receptacle and it's wiring. A loose wiring connection or a broken or cracked receptacle could be the issue. If you don't find any damage reassemble the outlet and turn the circuit breaker back ON. Instead of plugging in the dehumidifier, plug in a lamp or something similar and turn it ON. Leave it on for more than 5 minutes to see if the circuit breaker trips again. If it does, you'll know the problem is either with the outlet receptacle or the circuit breaker. If doesn't, plug in the dehumidifier (Make sure the Master ON/OFF Switch on the unit is in the OFF position, before plugging it in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is in the dehumidifier. You will need to call Whirlpool Customer Care, as it's an internal electrical issue.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%201188927.pdf

I have a Whirlpool AD75UST humidifier that stopped running, almost like it blew a fuse or something. Does it have a fuse somewhere? Any other possibilities? Thank you!


Have you checked the receptacle it's plugged into, to see if it's still working? Use an electric lamp to check this. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker in the home's main panel has been tripped. Unplug the dehumidifier and reset the circuit breaker. Then plug the dehumidifier back in. If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's an electrical problem within the dehumidifier.

In answer to your direct question ... some dehumidifiers have a reset switch. It's probably on the back of the unit, above the water collection tub. if all else fails consult your Owners Manual's Trouble Shooting Guide. If you have misplaced it, you can download it from the Whirlpool Appliance starting at their home page.

Hope this helped head you in the right direction to solving your problem.

Unit is repeatedly freezing up


Almost all dehumidifiers now have automatic defrost, but if you are seeing frost is just one small area, it means there is a refrigerant leak. Check your warranty to see if the sealed system is covered longer than one year. Generally, if it is, most manufacturers will replace the unit (rather than repair it, as the repair is rather expensive compared to the cost of a new unit). If you do not have any sealed system warranty coverage left on it, don't fix it. Buy a new dehumidifier.

Whirlpool Dehumidifier (AD75UST) blows water out upper right vent? Whirlpool Dehumidifier (AD75UST) is blowing water out of the upper right vent. Details: *Approx. 5 years old *It continues to collect water and work "normally" except for the water blowing out of the vent. I have attempted to collect water using the bucket but it continues to blow water out of the upper vent. I have also attempted to drain water through the hose attachment but, again, it continues to blow water out of the upper vent. *It is on a level surface *I have cleaned the filter in front to no avail. *The unit is run in 600 sq ft basement about 6 months out of the year on a continuous basis for the following reasons: The home is located in an area that was once a swamp. Therefore, it gets quite wet in the spring/summer. The basement/foundation is about 100 years old and has issues with seepage and water often pools in various areas when there is consistent and/or heavy rain. *I also checked the troubleshooting section of the manual but it didn't mention an issue of this type. *I have searched the web in hopes of finding a solution but have been unable to find anyone else with this problem (perhaps I'm using the wrong terminology? I'm only guessing the part that is blowing water is called a vent). *The warranty on the interior/sealed system is due to expire next month (end of April 2012). I'd like to narrow down the problem before that if it happens to be an issue that Whirlpool with pay to repair. Any ideas on how to correct the problem? Thank you in advance!
