How To Clean A Hisense Dehumidifier? A Simple Guide

It is terrific to have a Hisense dehumidifier at home. However, like other dehumidifiers, it has annoying upkeep. Luckily, cleaning a Hisense dehumidifier is not complicated, and you will know how to do it quickly.

In this post, I will go over the method for cleaning each part of a Hisense dehumidifier based on my experience, including the air filter, water filter, bucket, and even coil. Without further ado, let’s dive in!

What do you need to clean a Hisense dehumidifier?

You don’t need many tools to clean your Hisense dehumidifier.

You only need water, detergent, white vinegar, bleach (optional), a soft cloth, a soft brush, and a pair of gloves and goggles (if you use bleach).

How to clean the Hisense dehumidifier air filter?

I used to believe that cleaning the air filter on my Hisense dehumidifier would be time-consuming. However, it turns out to be quite simple. While it is recommended that you clean it every two weeks, I will clean it whenever the air filter indicator on the control panel illuminates.

This is because the frequency with which I need to clean the air filter is determined by a variety of factors, including the quality of the air and how frequently I run the dehumidifier.

  1. Unplug the machine. 
  1. Remove the air filter. The air filter is located in front of the air inlet on the back of the Hisense dehumidifier. It is simple to remove, and you can drag it out with your hands.
  2. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner or warm water. If the filter is not too filthy, a vacuum cleaner can pick up the lint, dirt, and dust that has accumulated on it. However, I prefer to rinse it directly under running water. I will occasionally use a mild detergent to dissolve stubborn impurities.
  3. Allow the air filter to dry naturally. If you clean it with water, do not immediately replace it. Before replacing it, make sure it is completely dry.
  4. Put it back. 

How to clean the Hisense dehumidifier water filter?

On the control panel, a “pump” button indicates that your model has an internal dehumidifier pump with a water filter.

The water filter should be cleaned every three months, according to the user manual.

  1. Disassemble the air filter and turn off the dehumidifier by pressing the power button.
  2. Set up a container to catch the water that drips from the water pan connector.
  3. Remove the connector and tilt your Hisense unit backward to allow the water to drain.
  4. Remove the two water filters behind the air filter as long as there is no water coming out.
  5. Clean it with water. If this method does not clean the filter, you can immerse it in a bucket with a mild detergent and water solution for a while and use a soft brush to remove any residue.
  6. Rinse the detergent away and replace the water filter.

How to clean the Hisense dehumidifier exterior?

Most Hisense dehumidifiers have a glossy finish on the outside, making dust and dirt visible. Every week, take one or two minutes to clean the outside of your room, which will make it appear much more tidy and clean.

  1. Unplug your Hisense dehumidifier.
  2. Wipe down your dehumidifier with a dry cloth.
  3. Soak the soft cloth in water and use it to remove any stains that remain on the surface.

How to clean the Hisense dehumidifier water bucket?

Whilst the water produced by the Hisense dehumidifier is relatively clean, you still need to clean the water bucket every one or two weeks. 

Mold spores and bacteria can enter the bucket, making it a thriving environment for these contaminants. If the bucket has a musty odor, it most likely needs to be cleaned and disinfected.

  1. Unplug the machine and remove the bucket when the “empty bucket” light on the control panel illuminates.
  2. To transport water, use the handle inside the water tank. If your hands are weak, you can take your Hisense model to the bathroom and empty the water into the floor drain.
  3. Half-fill the tank with clean water and add a small amount of mild detergent.
  4. Scrub the inside of the bucket with a soft cloth. Don’t ignore any buildups in the corners because contaminants can spread quickly.
  5. Drain the water and rinse it with fresh water.
  6. Your dehumidifier bucket should be disinfected on a regular basis. To the bucket, add a 1:1 solution of water and white vinegar and leave it for at least 30 minutes. Alternatively, fill the bucket halfway with water and add a few drops of bleach. Allow it to sit for a while as well.
  7. Rinse it several times with clean water until the vinegar and bleach smell is gone.
  8. Wipe away the water with a dry cloth and allow the bucket to air dry.
  9. Replace the water bucket and ensure that it fits snugly inside the machine.

How to clean the Hisense dehumidifier coil?

In fact, there is no instruction in the user manual on how to clean a dehumidifier coil. If you do it, your Hisense model’s warranty may be voided. As a result, you should proceed with caution or hire a professional.

This procedure may take some time, so record it for easier reversion.

Dehumidifier coils, unlike filters, are less prone to clogging. It’s possible that you won’t have to clean it for several years.

  1. Disconnect your Hisense dehumidifier.
  2. Disassemble the air filter to inspect the coils.
  3. Carefully disassemble the machine. (This step may be difficult; you should find a container to store all of the screws.)
  4. Once the coils have been exposed, clean the surface with a fin brush.
  5. Spray the coil with a mild detergent, white vinegar, or fin cleanser to dissolve the buildups.
  6. Reapply the fin brush to remove any remaining grime.
  7. Rinse the coils with water and allow them to air dry.
  8. Reverse the process and replace everything.


A Hisense dehumidifier is made up of many parts, many of which must be cleaned on a regular basis.
