No moisture removal. This is a DDH 30 model. How does one game access to the air filter for cleaning. I realize this is an
older unit but has always performed well. Before purchasing
Wayne, the filter may be in one of two places.
1. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.
2. Remove the bucket from the holder. Look up inside the holder, just in front of the louvers and you may see a plastic pull tab type handle. This will be the handle to the filter frame. Pull it down and out of the unit. Since it sounds like it has never been cleaned, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place, as it could cause damage to the unit
2. If the filter was not located in step 1, on the right side of the unit, just behind the louvers, there may be a pull open trap door. Flipping that door open, will give you access to the filter and it's removal. Clean it as described above.
The above are the only 2 places I know of, that the filter can be located in on a Delonghi
Dehumidifier. Unless, your unit is over 10 years old. In any event, I hope this helped you.
