What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Appears to be a well-made appliance I've had this dehumidifier for about a month, and it is doing a good job of reducing humidity levels in our basement. The true test will be to see how many seasons of service we get from it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with only one complaint 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 LG's motor which did shut off. It died due to a loss of refrigerant/pressure so it iced up solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soldier in the war against mold I purchased this LG product as it came highly recommended by consumer advocates. I have not been disappointed yet - it's been humming along, nearly full time, for weeks with no issues. When it arrived, mold had been growing on the walls of my unfinished basement with humidity levels around 80-85%. With this dehumidifier, I have the situation under control.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I was initially very disappointed at this unit arrived separated in half on one side. I was able to force the handle out and push the channel locks down to slide it back together. Overall the unit works well and I like the handle on the bucket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well 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 won't crack..let's hope I'm 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. I don't know if I can whole heartedly recommend this after having it for only a few weeks, but for now, as long as it keeps working, I do.

Does the LG 70 PuriCare model come with a drain hose ?

Asked by: 105ellis
The LG PuriCare™ 70-Pint Clear Bucket with Handle Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 does not come with a drain hose. It has a water bucket that the dehumidified water is stored in. If you need a drain hose, you can turn the hose cover in the back of the unit counterclockwise to open it, remove the water bucket and attach a garden hose in the drain hole at the rear of the case and reinstall the water bucket. (the dehumidifier does not work without the water bucket installed)...^IFV

This LG model UD701KOG3 worked fine during last Summer when we purchased it new, but now Winter 2018) the unit does not draw moisture from the basement air, as the collection tank is empty, even though we have a very damp (finished) basement.

Have a hose on drain but the bucket is still filling up. Don't know what to do to fix this?

Asked by: Steve Smith
We would recommend ensuring the hose is properly secured to the machine. If there is a drain hose connected, the pan should not be filling with water. If this doesn't resolve your issue, please reach out to our support team via Twitter @LGUSSupport or

What happens when the set humidity setting is reached?

Asked by: LPSinSCS
It takes 30 minutes of continuous operation for the LG PuriCare™ 70 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 to reach the desired humidity level the first time the product is used. After 23 hours of continuous operation, the red Safety Standby light turns on for one hour and the fan and compressor shut off to prevent product malfunction. After an hour with the fan and compressor shut off, the Safety Standby light turns off and the fan and compressor automatically restart...^IFV
