GROUNDING
METHOD
For your personal safety, this appliance
must be grounded. This appliance is equipped
with a power supply cord having a 3-prong
grounding plug. To minimize possible shock
hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating
3-prong grounding type wall receptacle,

TEMPORARY GROUNDING METHOD
If changing and properly grounding the wall
receptacle is impossible and where local
codes permit (consult your electrical inspector), a temporary adaptor may be plugged into
the existing 2-prong wall receptacle to mate
with the 3-prong power supply cord. THIS
HOWEVER, IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
If this is done, you must connect the grounding eyelet on the adapter to the wall receptacle
cover plate screw and from this same screw,
you must connect a separate copper ground
wire (#14 minimum) to a grounded cold water
pipe.* Do not ground to a gas supply pipe.
Do not connect to electrical supply until

prevent moisture damage.
Use to prevent moisture
damage anywhere books or
valuables are stored.
Use in cooking, laundry,
bathing and dishwashing
areas which have excess
moisture.

Caring for your dehumidifier
Your dehumidifier is designed to serve you
year-round. It needs practically no attention.
However, you should check your dehumidifier
and inspect the coils annually. Follow these
instructions carefully.
You may call a service company to perform
this annual checkup or you can do it yourself.
Cost of annual inspection is the owner’s
responsibility.
1. To remove outer cabinet:
a. Disconnect power cord.
b. Take off the plastic grille. Remove the two
screws at the bottom. Drop grille down
and take out.
SOCKET HEAD
SCREWS
(side of cabinet)
c. Remove the socket head screws on each
side and top flange screws (see illustrations). Also remove rear grille. Pull out at
bottom and drop grille down.
d. Lift cabinet from unit.
OIL FAN MOTOR
2. Coils should be inspected annually. Brush
clean, if necessary, with warm water and mild
detergent. Rinse and dry. Be sure power
supply cord is disconnected.
3. The compressor is sealed and needs no
oiling. The fan motor is prelubricated and
does not require further oiling under normal
operating conditions. However, if the
dehumidifier is operated under severe environmental conditions (dust, dirt, high temperatures) the fan motor should be oiled annually.
Follow the instructions in step 4.
4. Oil the motor through the tubes provided.
An easy to use capsule of especially recommended oil (Part Number 10943) is available
through your nearest Whirlpool Factory Service Center, or use SAE #20 non-detergent oil.
5. Wash plastic parts with a soft cloth, warm
water and mild detergent. Rinse and dry with a
soft cloth.
6. Replace cabinet and grille(s). Reconnect
power supply cord.
If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these five steps:
1. Before calling
for assistance...
Performance problems often result from little
things you can find and fix yourself without
tools of any kind.
If unit won’t operate
l Is the dehumidifier
correctly plugged into a
live circuit with the proper voltage?
l Is the Humidistat
Control set to a position
other than UNIT OFF? Try a dryer setting.
l Have you checked the main fuse or circuit
breaker box?
If unit blows fuses or trips circuit
breakers:
l Are correct time-delay
fuses being used in
the main fuse box?
l Is an extension
cord being used? Do not use
an extension cord.
l Are the coils iced or clogged with lint?
If unit ices up:
l Is humidity too low?
l Is room temperature
below 65°F (18.3%)?
Coil will become iced over at low temperatures
If water collects on the floor:
l Is unit reasonably
level?
l Is hose or drain clogged or kinked?
l Is the water pan overflowing?
Pan must be
properly positioned.
Special dehumidifier
needs:
l Annual inspection:
Clean coils, inspect drain
and hoses. If necessary, oil the fan motor.
l Moving: When moving, keep the unit in an
upright position.
