Good afternoon all, my apologies if this is in the wrong location. I have also searched and could not find any info pertaining to my model. It's an older model: Whirlpool Gold Accudry 50 pt Dehumidifier
Model #AD50USS2 SN#QU1834450
115Volts
60Hz
5.9amps

I'm hoping to find a more professional opinion regarding the problem. The dehumidifier works fine on all settings, will run for hours, fan works fine so I don't think it's the motor however, the dehumidifier will not pull water. I've tested approximately 70 degrees, 55% humidity. Does that sound like the capacitor? The filters are cleaned regularly and the overload shut off does not engage, so I don't think it's the compressor. Since this model is older, i'm looking to fix with parts rather than purchase new. A brand new 50 pint will run me a minimum $300 so I figured I'd see if I could fix it first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance -Jeff

Mods feel free to relocate the post if necessary. Thx.

Hi,

The dehumidifier works fine on all settings, will run for hours, fan works fine, the dehumidifier will not pull water.
Fan running, compressor running but not collecting any moisture/water = a major system problem.
System leak, inefficient compressor, restriction or any combination of these = new dehumidifier time.
