From the service manual there is more to it but that was all I could put here.
Accessing Service/Diagnostic Mode:
Pressing down the damp dry and time (-) keys
for 5 seconds places the machine in the
diagnostic mode.
The following table lists the various tests
available while in the Service Mode, which
can be accessed by pressing the following
Press Keys Special Test/ Function
release Diagnostic Codes
temp(^ )
Sequences up the
help/diagnostic code list
dryer temp(v) Sequences down the
help/diagnostic code list
time (-) Displays Software Revision
very dry(< ) View current cycle
temperature (Co)
Start or pause cycle running
but remain in Diagnostic
Accessing Diagnostic Codes
After the machine is in the diagnostic mode,
a ‘d’ will display and let the technician know
they are in the diagnostic mode. Pressing the
wrinkle release key will access the diagnostic
codes.The diagnostic codes can be viewed by
using the temperature (^) & (v) keys.
The down arrow key will sequence down the
list one each time it is pushed with no wrap.
The first time the down arrow key is pushed
the display will sequence to the next code
logged. The last code being displayed being
the oldest code. The up arrow will sequence
up the list one code each time it is pushed
until it reaches the top code. If there are no
diagnostic codes available, ‘00‘ will be
displayed for the diagnostic code.
There will be no multiple occurrences of
either a diagnostic code or help code generated
in the same cycle reported on the list.
But if the same code occurs in repeated
cycles, it will be registered.
To clear the diagnostic code list press
wrinkle prevent and very dry (>) for 5
seconds while viewing the list.
System Check Mode
While in diagnostic mode, pressing the damp
and signal (+) keys for 2 seconds, will
put the dryer into the system check mode.
"SC" will display.
This mode will allow the various inputs and
outputs to be controlled and viewed by the
technician by pressing individual keys. If no
activity is seen for 5 minutes after a key is
depressed, the control will reset back to the
normal mode. If no further activity is seen
after an additional 5 minutes the washer will
turn off. The following table lists the various
functions based upon on keys being depressed.
Membrane Pad Check
While in system check mode, pressing the
damp dry and sensor dry keys for 5 seconds,
will start a membrane pad switch test.
The membrane check involves turning all the
embedded LED on the membrane pad on.
All the LED’s can be toggled off by pressing

What does the "dry" mode function do on the Goldstar GWHD6507R window air conditioner unit? There are also "cool" and "fan" modes, but the "dry" mode is mysterious. Is it some kind of dehumidifier...

Your AC removes humidity and cools the air, in Dry Mode it cools the air but does not remove the humidity as much, which is OK in a desert (Las Vegas, Arizona, etc.) but not good for caribbean with the high humidity

Could you please explain the ''dry'' setting on the mode

The 'dry' setting is a feature which allows you to use the air conditioner as a dehumidifier. It works by cooling the radiator enough for it to attract condensation (mosture from the rooms air) which then drains into a tank or an external hose which dries the room. Even when used in cooling mode the unit will dehumidfy too, but because the fan is on it will be less effective. Also when the unit is in cooling mode it stops the compressor (cooling motor) when it reaches the selected rom temperature, however the dry function overides this and is a more effective dehumidifier as it will work in small spaces too. Hope this helps.

What is the function of dry mode in ac, when to use dry mode, and when to use cool mode and what about heat mode.

Dry Mode in AC is to dehumidify the room the fan cycles on and off and the indoor unit temperature drops below freezing which causes condensate to collect on the coil and as a result the humidity level of the indoor air is reduced

What is the Dry setting on air conditioner?

Hi, I know this question's been up a while and I'm not sure if you care anymore but here goes anyway.

Most air conditioners are reverse cycle, so they can heat the air in your house or cool it down. What we are concerned with is the cooling side of things. So in this mode a working liquid is sprayed into the evaporator and cools its immediate surroundings. air is blown over the evaporator which cools the air. The local temperature around the evaporator is very cold, (how cold exactly I'm not sure) so the air in this region has a very poor ability to hold water and so (especially on a humid day) water condenses out of this air on the surface of the evaporator, is collected and drained away. The cooling function and dry function both use the "cooling" mechanism of the air conditioner. Both extract water from the air in this way but the primary purpose of the cooling function is to cool the air whereas the primary function of the dry setting is to dry the air... obvious I know.

Now in the dry setting the compressor will run with fan going at I imagine a relatively slow speed to chill and extract as much water from the air as possible and to minimise circulation. After a short time the compressor and fan will cut-out and then after a short interval start up again (I'm not really sure but I assume this is either controlled by a humidity sensor OR the temperature sensor monitors for a small change in temperature and shuts off the compressor and fan when it detects this). Now in cooling mode (depending on what temperature is set) the compressor will run for longer and more frequently and therefore remove more water. So why have a dry mode if cooling mode removes more water?... Well that really has the same answer as the question "when do I use dry mode?"

Well on a particular day where the temperature would normally be considered comfortable but on this day it is unusually humid, your body will find it difficult to radiate heat via sweat because of the already high RH (relative humidity) making you uncomfortable and feel "hot". Using dry mode will reduce this RH without adjusting the temperature by much, but you will perceive an ambient temperature drop due to your body being able to discard heat more easily... hence making you more "comfortable" in same way you would normally feel at that temperature.

On the contrary if you were to use cooling mode (which is regulated by temperature) you would have to set a temperature lower than ambient so that the compressor will "kick-in" rather than the air conditioner just running its fan...agree? So that means the air conditioner will reduce RH (which we want) giving you a perceived temp drop but it is also chasing the temperature which you set which will give a REAL temperature drop. So anyway the point is; if it was an unusually humid day on what would otherwise be a comfortable temperature, using cooling (remember the temp has to be set lower than ambient) instead of dry would result in you feeling cold very quickly due to the perceived AND real temperature drop.

So really the dry setting is for days which aren't too hot, but are humid.

I think my logic makes sense.

cheers Matt

Sounds like the moisture sensor has gone away. Not sure where it is located on this model, though.
