Great features questionable data

slackde 7/16/2018

I recently purchased the dehumidifier and was very pleased with the appliance. It was easy to set up and start up. I do find that the humidity reading may not be at all accurate. I have a thermometer/humidity gauge nearby and the two are routinely 15 different. Im not sure which to believe.

Bobnic 7/14/2018

This replaced my previous dehumidifier which no longer was getting the humidity in my large basement below 70. This LG is keeping it at between 50-55. It is much quieter than my previous unit. As indicated in other reviews the fan does stay on constantly which is an apparent design feature. Despite that it uses about 200 watts less than my previous unit also 70 pint and Im getting a $25 rebate from my electric company PSEG.

Hi-Tech dehumidifier

Mamadoc 7/13/2018

We bought this dehumidifier to replace an old one. We live in a damp climate and need a dehumidifier for our basement. We have used it for about a month during our humid summer. It has been working very well. It was easy to set upwe use the drain feature. Since were away from home for the winter we like the timer and its auto-turnoff features. The wheels make it easy to move. My only recommendation is that it should include a drain hose.

We bought this dehumidifier about 2 months ago after refinishing our basement. Our summers are very humid here and I wanted to be sure that the basement was as comfortable as the rest of the house. We have it set at 45 and Im happy to say that its doing the job We have a separate humidifier gauge on the other side of the room and its consistently reading 46. So far very happy.

Doing the job

1PMS 7/13/2018

I have used the unit for a few weeks with these results: humidity levels were reduced from around 75 to 40 in a large basement. The lower humidity was achieved in a few days and has been retained while high humidity was experienced in the neighborhood. To date the unit has not to my knowledge shut off since it was installed raising some concern.

rcarson101 7/11/2018

Something I could not foresee was how clumsy it is to remove the water bucket from the unit to empty it. Having to tilt the bucket so far over to one side to disengage it from its mounting position in the body of the unit makes it easy to spill water when the bucket is near full. Another thing the cover of the water bucket that has to be removed before emptying it is awkward and not really customer friendly enough for me. After all this is a pricey unit. I expected more from LG. Both of these conditions I have mentioned were in NO WAY evident to me before I forked over the money to pay for this item carted it home and unpacked it. I am a bit disappointed in this product.

Effective ergonomic controls and stylish

Beef1 7/11/2018

After having had three other brands fail on me over the last seven years all seemingly due to loss of refrigerant despite having purchased premium models I decided to consult Consumer Reports for my next purchase. This model was at the top and the general reviews on Amazon were similarly positive so I made the purchase. Set-up was dirt simple with the possible exception of some awkwardness in attaching the continuous drain hose connection. Controls are so easy to read and actually make intuitive sense. The unit is relatively quiet even with the fan on high. I put it in a relatively large and damp basement about ten days ago and the humidity has dropped from almost 70 to now holding at the 45 set point. Early on as it was pulling out a lot of moisture the auto-defrost feature kicked in quite a bit accomplishing what it needed to do. I havent seen a defrost cycle in about four days now. I like the black and stylish clean design. Almost seems a shame to keep it stashed down in the basement.

Good product with a few drawbacks

Traveler50 7/10/2018

I purchased this dehumidifier approximately one month ago to replace an LG I purchased this dehumidifier approximately one month ago to replace an LG dehumidifier that lasted approximately nine years. So far the unit is working well. It is quiet the display panel is easy to read the water collection bucket is easy to remove and the unit has a solid build. I also like the black color of the unit as it is a pleasant change to the porcelain white units sold almost exclusively by all other manufacturers. One feature I do not like about the unit - which prevents me from giving it five stars - is that despite reaching the desired set humidity level the fan continues to run. Not sure the purpose of this other than to limit the on/off cycles of the compressor. My previous LG unit stopped running after the preset humidity level was reached and then automatically restarted when the humidity level rose. A great feature and it saved on electricity. I also agree with a previous reviewer who took issue with the accuracy of the humidity level displayed by the unit. I do not believe it is accurate. Finally I do not like the timing function on this unit. You can set it to run from 1-12 hours. It then stops. My previous LG had two run cycles of 2 or 4 hours i.e. it would run for the preset hours then shut off completely for the 2 or 4 hours and the cycle would repeat itself until you changed the setting. Despite the above listed drawbacks of the unit I am pleased with the unit and hope that it lasts as long as my previous LG.

Ciesel 7/10/2018

I bought an LG dehumidifier 10 year ago and loved that one but wore it out as it ran year round. So of course I would buy another LG love the new features added yes u pay a lil more but well worth it when its as reliable as it is. Have bought previous Brands prior to my LGs and theyve only lasted a year so might as well spend a little extra extra money to get that peace of mind. Well worth the money

Neat design - easy to handle

RGM DEL 7/9/2018

This model was a replacement for an older model LG dehumidifier. That quit after seven+ years of operation. One switch- full bucket - failed and it did not make sense to spend money take it to a distant service center. The unit works well and is reasonably quiet. The feature for continuous drainage - lawn hose connection - could be designed better by having male end sticking out of the cabinet. But with some effort the connection was made and it is working well. LG could improve its instruction booklet - especially for seniors.

Katrin123 7/8/2018

I put this LG UD701KO3G in my Midwest 1000 sq ft basement about a 3 weeks ago. Its been pulling out at least 13 pints of water per day and keeping the humidity at around 45 at the low fan setting - quietly. I could have said about almost the same things about the previous 2 humidifiers different brands I purchased which each lasted 2 years. Time will tell about the LGs longevity -to hedge my bet I purchased the extended warranty.

Have had the LG UD701KO3G for just over a month and it has performed very well in keeping the humidity in our approximately 1000 square foot basement.under control. When the dehumidifier was first turned on the humidity was close to 70 but was reduced to the 50 set point within a couple of hours. Humidity readings using an independent hygrometer have stayed within +- 5 of the dehumidifier set point thru some very humid days and nights.

LCReardon 7/2/2018

I actually bought two of these dehumidifiers for basements in my house in Virginia and my camp in Maine. I have had very bad luck recently with several brand name dehumidifiers which have only lasted one or two years even thought I only ran them during the summer. I am keeping my fingers crossed with LG. I already have high regard for their quality as I have LG European style all in one washer/drier that is fantastic. I see the same quality in workmanship and just hope that their high standards have been met in their Chinese factory where the dehumidifer was made. So far so good

Bought this a month ago after my last LG got shorted out in a sewer back-up. This model is quiet and efficient. It runs 24/7 with a couple of automatic time outs. It makes a huge difference in our basement keeping it dry during high humidity weather. One suggestion: Include a 6 drain hose. Either include the hose with the purchase make it an option for a couple of dollars more. Its easier for your customers.

Removes humidity but humidistat not accurate

HomeownerinPA 6/27/2018

Seems to do a good job of removing humidity from the air but the humidistat does not give an accurate reading of the humidity level. I have two separate humidity monitors in my basement both read 50 but the humidistat on the dehumidifier registers 60. Im afraid this results in the compressor running longer than it needs to so I am disappointed that the humidistat is so inaccurate. Guess Ill just live with it since I dont feel like dealing with the hassle of getting a replacement unit.

Works with only one complaint

karen006 6/18/2018

Had this now for about 4 weeks. It definitely pulls the moisture out of my basement. Our previous dehumidifier was also an LG which is why we went with this model over other highly rated models. We placed it on a concrete floor and the noise level is just fine. It is quieter than our previous LG and definitely quieter than the other model/manufacturer we used 10 years ago. My only complaint is that the unit never shuts down when the desired humidity level is reached we have it hooked with a hose to a drain. I understand that LG may want to protect the motor from constant starts and stops but it seems to me that they could compensate for that by programming the unit to go below the desired humidity level by a few percentage points before shutting off similarly letting the air go above the desired humidity level a few points before turning on. Maybe this would help the motor last longer. However we never had any issue with our previous LGs motor which did shut off. It died due to a loss of refrigerant/pressure so it iced up solid.

Kroykah 6/14/2018

I bought this product from Home Depot and have had it for about two weeks. I read some reviews where people warned about the bucket cracking but seems to me if you are careful the bucket wont crack..lets hope Im right. The first day I used it in my basement it made a noticeable difference. The musty smell I was getting was mostly gone. I like the fact that it automatically turns off when the bucket is full and I especially like that the unit is mounted on wheels which makes it very easy to move around.
