Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty.

I bought this a month ago and you sent defective item and refused to replace it. It wasnt my fault I received defective item. That wasnt We expected for. We were so happy to receive it but We had to wait to open after the mold removal finished at our house. I hate you so much wasting my time trying to call you for the last 5 days. Weve been thought a lot already we dont need this.

Excellent dehumidifier slight issue

amanishijet 9/1/2021

I bought this a couple of months ago and it has been excellent at removing the moisture from my over 100 year old basement. I would recommend it almost without hesitation. The one hesitation i have is that the hose connector broke for continuous draining. i bought a much less robust plastic hose and have had zero issues as luckily I could connect this to the broken bit where the hose attached previously.

LARGE BASEMENT - 50 PINT UNIT DOING A GREAT JOB.

De Mike 8/9/2021

This unit was purchased to replace a 70 Pint unit that was no longer working. We had searched for another 70 pint unit but it appeared they were no longer available. So we picked up a 50 pint unit at Home Depot. This unit is working just great. Any fears of not being able to keep up with the high humidity of summer have been squashed. I use this in my 1800 square foot open basement. I also have another 70 pint LG unit that is still in service. I alternate their running time each day to about 12 hours each. My basement stays in the low 70 degree range at around 48 to 51 percent humidity even on the stickiest days. One of the most important reasons I picked the LG units was because of LGs claim that all or most of the electronics are encased in metal in case of failure or fire. As a first responder this was paramount to me. A lot of basement fires are caused by faulty dehumidifiers. Watch what you buy. Do your research before you spend your hard earned money.

Les Humed 7/29/2021

This unit does a great job of removing inside humidity. Also has nice features such as audible signal when bucket is full. It has a built in air filter you just vacuum clean. And you can set it up to drain continually. Controls are easy to use and to set it to different settings. Would definitely purchase again.

Gboh 7/24/2021

We bought this dehumidifier about 3 weeks ago when our old one finally died. I thought our previous unit did a great job but I cant believe how much more water our LG pulls out of the air In our basement we have to manually empty the reservoir so I am getting more exercise with this machine

Great dehumidifier

Cdiane0107 7/5/2021

This is one hard working machine I had a floor drain back up in a finished basement. My daughter used a wet and vac and all the water that was visible was cleaned up. The drain is in a spot that is not seen so the water had been seeping under the baseboards. I may have to tear them out in the end but the dehumidifier will sometimes fill up twice a day. I always read reviews before purchasing something and this one did not disappoint.

Should have purchased earlier

mkeMike 6/21/2021

Bought this to replace an old dehumidifier in a damp cottage basement. Sorry now I did not replace it years ago. The new machine is quieter has two fan speeds looks nicer and removes 3 times as much water as the older unit The auto defrost will also come in handy if temps cool down to below 60 in the basement. Took the basement from 70 percent humidity to 50 percent in 3 days And we had pouring rain for about 12 hours on the last day The old model would have been lucky to do that in a week in ideal conditions?

Bobby NC 6/15/2021

Ive used the dehumidifier now for several weeks and boy did it improve our home air quality. Cooler in summer and I believe itll be warmer in winter. Easy to use and I like the digital display. Bucket easy to empty and it does come with external drain attachment.

TimCoop 6/13/2021

We bought this dehumidifier about 3 weeks ago and it works very efficiently. The humidity in our basement has always been around 70 percent and we would run our old one all day and it would lower if maybe 5 degrees. This new one will lower it from 70 to 55 or 50 in several hours. I would highly recommend this for anyone that needs to get humidity out of an area.

Easy to set up and great hook up to use with a hose. Filter is easily accessible for cleaning. Using in large basement where humidity was about 63 when installed. Less than 24 hours after turning it on humidity jad gone down to 50. Im pleased with this unit. It replaced a 4 year old Frigidaire humidifier that quit working.

I use a dehumidifier in my basement during the humid summer days. This unit runs quietly and does a good job of removing humidity. I need to dump the bucket daily - its easy to remove. I bought the LG because LG has a reputation of quality. The last dehumidifier I bought lasted less than two seasons and neither the store I bought it from nor the manufacturer would stand behind it. I am hoping the LG will last many years.

Works good couple things could be improved. Seems awkward emptying the water reservoir from side and it tips out from top and never seems smooth to remove or replace. Other brands Ive had easily slide out from the front. Would also like the option to continuously run until bucket is full.

TC41 5/16/2021

I am not sure it operates correctly/efficiently. The humidistat never seems to come down to the level I have set 50 and the unit runs continuously. Yet it only seems to fill up the bin twice in 24 hours. I believe that is only about 26 or so pints? I have had it about 3 weeks and think I should likely contact LG to discuss.

Awkward But Nice

Ray1001 5/5/2021

Previous LG model had generally performed well for years so its replacement with another LG was a given. The cantilever support of the water bucket should eliminate any potential problems arising from anticipated years of use but removing the bucket does require a degree of coordination. The bucket full alert light isnt visible from a distance. Otherwise the machine is quiet and performs well.

Love this dehumidifier

Basement Dweller 3/6/2021

I am using the LG dehumidifier in my basement TV area. I love the black finish it blends in with all of the other technology devices in that area. It has a low hum similar to an air conditioning unit and does not distract from the television audio. I like the wheel castors which makes it very easy to relocate if needed. I really like that I can easily see the water level through in the collection bin. Finally the handle on the water collection bin makes emptying very easy. Cleaning the bin is also very easy.

Great Dehumidifier

krona 3/6/2021

I bought the dehumidifier for my apartment on the first floor. The first day I used it it ran until the bucket was full. I run it everyday in different parts of the apartment. I run it at night too. The fan has 2 speeds. The bucket is easy to remove and put back in place. This unit is better than a previous model I used in the past.

Controls the humidity in my basement at 50 +/- 2. It doesnt seem to be working that hard to do it either. The controls are easy to use and I have a hose connected directly to the drain so it is essentially maintenance free. The basement feels and smells so much better. I am totally satisfied with my purchase.

Quiet drying

dry happy 2/25/2021

I purchased this a few weeks ago for my Wifes Dog Grooming salon. I built the Salon but didnt put good enough ventilation in so when she is washing the Dogs the room gets very moist. I had a dehumidifier in the room already which was very loud but that one quit working and when it was working didnt seem to get much water out of the room. I bought this LG dehumidifier and put it in this thing is super quiet compared to my old one and the room is dryer No water running down the windows now. My wife loves it and can now actually hear customers when talking to them. Im hoping this one works for many years.

My LG Dehumidifier: Effective Efficient Elegant

VeryHappyLGCustomer 2/9/2021

I bought my LG Dehumidifier during the Summer of 2020. I have owned several different brands of dehumidifiers in the past and to be honest I did not know that LG made them. Having purchased both LG Washer and Dryer in the Fall of 2019 and yet thrilled with their performance I did not hesitate to choose the LG Humidifier when I found it on line. Long story short this unit is intuitive incredibly effective and efficient and it looks great and operates very quietly for this type of machine. I will look to LG for all of my appliance needs in the future large and small.

Easy

KK4619 2/2/2021

I bought this to replace another brand that had a flaw that made it keep switching to fill instead of use its drain hose even though it was relatively new. This one has been problem free. It is in my crawl space so I needed one I would not have to check constantly. It is fairly quiet although when the furnace is not on I can hear the dehumidifier through the floor. For me that is a plus. I simply placed it under the living room so the sound is not noticeable in the sleeping area. I would recommend this unit.
