the water pan for drinking purposes.
It is not sanitary. Failure to follow the
above precaution could result in
personal injury or illness.
This unit has a 24 pint (11.3 L) capacity
water pan. There are three methods of disposing of water.
1. Empty pan manually.
When pan is full, remove it, empty it into a
large sink or tub and replace it properly.

can be left open. Cut out opening with a knife
or S-inch (19 mm) wood drill. Once opened,
hose connection will continually drain water
from the pan. Be sure to keep unit directly
over a drain.

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.
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.
OR
If you are familiar with electrical appliances
and their functions, listed below are instructions which would allow you to do the inspection and maintenance yourself.
COILS
Electrical Shock and
Personal Injury Hazard
. Disconnect power supply cord from
receptacle before performing any
maintenance.
l Be careful
when cleaning the coils.
Fins are sharp.
Failure to follow the above precautions could result in electrical shock
or personal injury.
1. Disconnect dehumidifier from power
supply.
2. To remove outer cabinet:
a. Take off the plastic front grille.

pull it out.
TOP FLANGE SCREWS
SOCKET-HEAD

MOTOR OIL TUBES
3. Coils should be inspected annually.
Brush coils clean, if necessary, with warm
water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry
thoroughly. Be sure the power supply cord
is disconnected
from the electrical outlet.
4. 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 5.
5. Oil the fan motor through the tubes
provided. An easy-to-use capsule of especially
recommended oil (Part No. 10943) is available
from your nearest authorized WhirlpoolSM
service company, or use SAE #20 nondetergent oil.
6. Wash all plastic parts with a soft cloth,
warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and
dry them with a soft cloth.
7. Replace cabinet and grille(s). Reconnect
dehumidifier to power supply.
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:
Is the dehumidifier properly plugged into a
live circuit with the proper voltage?
Is the Humidistat Control set to a position
other than OFF? Try a dryer setting.
Have you checked your home’s main fuse or
circuit breaker box?
If unit blows fuses or trips circuit breakers:
Are the correct time-delay fuses being used
in your home’s main fuse box?
Is an extension cord being used? Do not
use an extension cord.
Are the coils iced or clogged with lint?
If unit ices up:
Is humidity too low?
Is room temperature below 65°F (18.3X)?
Coil will become iced over at low temperatures.
If water collects on the floor:
Is unit reasonably level?
9 Is hose kinked or drain clogged?
. Is the water pan overflowing? Pan must be
properly positioned.
Special dehumidifier
needs:
. Annual inspection: Clean coils, inspect drain
and hoses. If necessary, oil the fan motor.
Moving: When moving, keep the unit in an
upright position.

serial number of your appliance when requesting service. Also, retain your sales slip and
