What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I am an LG employee and I purchased this products for my townhouse property. it wasn't for all day use, I just turn it on for few hours during the summer time, because it is so humid inside of the house. This works really well for my needs. It absorbs the humid air really quickly, and the product looks sophisticate. so I can put this machine anywhere I want, hallway, living room space, bedroom doesn't look bad at all! Also, as you read the description, this product has multiple safety features we can rely on, I think that is the most significant features of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I recently purchased this unit after we had a pipe break in our basement. I have had good results with my LG washer and dryer and decided to give the dehumidifier a try. I have used it for 3 months and am quite pleased thus far. It is relatively quite and does a good job taking moisture out of the air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest dehumidifier ever! I have used dehumidifiers before but none as fast as this in performing its job. The appliance is lightweight and I was able to carry it upstairs to set up. That was also very easy. Within 4 hours the living room was at a comfortable 55% humidity and had started about 70%. I have a large home and move it around with ease as it also is on wheels. The water container is easy to get to and has a great handle.The unit is stylish and quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, Reliable, Efficient! I was really excited when I got home and my LG Air Care Dehumidifier had been delivered. I got it up to my condo. Less than 10 minutes later it was out of the box and setup ready to go. No problem to do it without help. Directions were clear. I have a tile floor, so I put it on a small rug. I turned it on and picked the low fan speed. It is very quiet. At 2:22 in the afternoon, the humidity in my living room was 85%. At 7:30 that night the humidity was 60% in the living room and bedroom. I had a full container of water to water my plants with. They like the condensate water better than tap water. Everyone is very happy. I have had it a couple of months now. Have had no problems. People above me had a leek and I had water drip into my bathroom. LG Dehumidifier to the rescue. It dried out the bathroom so I didn't have further problems. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool looking dehumidifier Cool, compact and effective dehumidifier. So far is doing pretty good in controlling the house humidity. It a little noisy at high speed but after a while you get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best dehumidifier available in its class. Fantastic instructions and easy to setup. Extremely happy with its features, quality, dependability and price. I own many other LG brand products and it's always my first choice when researching and shopping for new appliances and electronics. I am never disappointed in choosing an LG product, they deliver every time on quality, dependability and smart product engineering and design at a fair price.

For as much as this unit costs, why doesn't it come with a hose attachment for continuous use without having to manually empty the water bucket? Do we really have to spend more money for accessories that should be included?

Asked by: GiovanniL
According to the information on page 8 of the owner’s manual, the CONTINUOUS DRAINAGE SETUP requires the use of a standard garden hose. This standard water hose is not provided by the manufacturer.

How does autodefrost work? How long does it take? I'm assuming no degumidifying is taking place in autodefrost mode?
