whirlpool dehumidifier cleaning

I bought a whirlpool model ad25dss1 at a yard sale and can't figure out how to clean between the evaporator and condenser, does anyone know?

Welcome to the forums.

The link below shows the insides of your unit. Since the evaporator and condenser are connected with copper tubing..... they probably can't be moved much.

Usually just the evaporator needs to be cleaned as that's where the air enters the unit. To clean between the coils you would most likely need to use an air compressor with blow nozzle to blow thru the coils.

Thanks for the reply, I did finally get it, if you take the control panel off the plastic will flex enough to separate them. it was really plugged up in there.

It's not supposed to be plugged up in there. There is supposed to be a washable filter over the evaporator to stop that.

I had another brand that quit gathering water and it was plugged there also.
