There can be many reasons why a dehumidifier will not work or collect water.

Here is a tip that I wrote to help people to figure out what is going wrong with their dehumidifier

Dehumidifier is running but no water is in bucket

Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

Typically the FILTER RESET light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation. To locate the filter, remove the bucket and the pull filter downwards. The filter can be clean by using clean water or vacuum cleaner extension hose. If you use clean water, please allow the filter to dry. Once you reinstalled the filter then replace the bucket. To extinguish the light simply press the FILTER button and your dehumidifier should resume normal operations. Remember it is best to clean your filter every two weeks based on normal operating conditions. Hope this helps! - Z

Hello friend, that's a great question!

The best way to clean your Frigidaire dehumidifier's coil is by using a brush attachment from your vacuum. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hey friend, thank you for the post!

I understand that your dehumidifier continuously is set at 50-60 and the clean filter light has not stopped. I would like to ask you some additional questions in order to provide you better assistance. First, does the appliance still collect water? Secondly, have you tried to reset the appliance? I look forward to your comment back so that I can further help you. -Matt

Hello Friend, this is Z. I am happy to assist you!

If you are receiving an error code AS on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, it typically means that your dehumidifier is experiencing a sensor failure. Because it is a smaller appliance, repairs are often more costly than the actual appliance replacement. Is your appliance still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Best of luck!

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to measure the humidity in a room with your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FDL50R1. Typically, your appliance will not measure the humidity and tell you exactly what the level is. I suggest placing your dehumidifier in the room you want it in, and turning it on to the continuous mode. The display will show "CO". Leave it at this setting for the first 3-4 days. Once the 3-4 days has passed, I suggest setting it to the 50%, 60%, or 70% setting and change it to your liking. If it is more humid in the room than you would like, put the setting lower. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi Kim - I understand that you removed the styrofoam inside the dehumidifier float thinking it was packing material, however I would recommend contacting the manufacturer to verify if it the part is available and can be replaced.
