What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Design This is my second LG dehumidifier. I find them dependable, well made, good features, metal exterior instead of plastic. I would like it to have a timer selection to chose especially once humidity level is reached

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do. Since putting this in the cellar a couple of months ago, we've had our first odor-free summer in there. I'm amazed by how much water this thing sucks out of the air.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall okay for the price, but some problems ... We chose this dehumidifier when we moved from a dry climate where we never needed one before. We chose this one because it was black, a reasonable price, & looked attractive and sleek since it would be visible. All of those things have been true, but we were not aware of how noisy it would be at the time. We have been running it during the day and not at night because it's too loud to sleep with. Also, we wish that a hose would have been included in the box because that was an additional expense on our part after the purchase of the dehumidifier in order to use it while we are out of town for longer periods of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, works like a charm This is the dehumidifier for you, period. I love the no empty hose option. And it runs for 23 hours, and cools down by itself for and hour. Cleaning the filter is a breeze. Basically this unit is truely a set it and forget it item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job, and looks good doing it! We've been using dehumidifiers in our finished basement for years. Love the design of the LG 's side loading water catchment tank, with a very sturdy handle. Also pleasantly surprised by how quiet it is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed in features but dehumidifies well We bought this dehumidifier to replace on that was in our basement when we bought the house in 1978. That had a "float" - a simplistic piece of Styrofoam that would rise with the water level to hit a switch and turn off the machine when filled. It would also turn off when the preferred humidity level was reached, and DID NOT run continuously by any means. This LG machine does NOT do that. It runs at the preferred setting until the reservoir fills, which is VERY OFTEN. We had to empty the old unit every 3 days or so, in very humid weather, once a month when not rainy, damp weather. The LG MUST be emptied EVERY DAY, as it will not run when full and it fills rapidly. We've had no change in our environmental conditions that would cause this. I have put the machine on a timer so that it doesn't run constantly. I have tried to adjust the setting to accomplish this with no success, over the 4 weeks we've had it is service. It's also a quite loud vibration noise when the compressor is running. It sits on concrete, but I've tried putting it on a piece of cardboard, leveling it, etc without success in muffling the noise. We have an LG refrigerator and an LG front load washing machine. Their performance suggested to us that we purchase the LG dehumidifier. Although, I must also state that the washer has odor issues, when the door is closed when not in use. Fortunately it's in our basement and we do leave it open to accommodate this. The refrigerator's left door latch broke after approximately 2 years of use. I suppose we should reevaluate making LG purchase choices in the future. The function of products seems to be a higher quality than the features integrated in the machines.

what size basement will this dehumidifier work in?

Asked by: JoshfromNJ
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG PuriCare Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 will remove 70 pints of moisture per day and has a low CFM of 141.3 and a High CFM of 176.6 (units are cubic feet per minute) For dehumidifiers, CFM is important because moisture can only be extracted from air that can be moved through the dehumidifier. Simply put, if your dehumidifier cannot move any air (CFM = 0), then it cannot extract any moisture. To determine the proper room size, you will need to measure the cubic footage of that room (i.e multiplying the length x width x height) and determine its humidity level. The best way to determine its humidity level is to purchase an inexpensive hygrometer (an inexpensive device that can measure the relative humidity) which can be purchased from any retail store that specializes in home repair and will provide you with the percentage of humidity that resides in a specific room or area. If you do not have access to a hygrometer, you can use the specific characteristics of the room to determine its humidity levels. Then you will need to multiply the cubic feet you calculated earlier by the ACH and divide the result by the number 60. For moderately damp conditions, you will need dehumidifiers that can extract 10 pints (4.73 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For every additional 500 square feet (46.45 square meters), add 4 pints (1.89 liters). For example, for rooms that are 1500 square feet (139.35 square meters), you will need a dehumidifier that can extract 18 pints (8.51 liters) of water. For very damp conditions, buy dehumidifiers that can extract 12 pints (5.67 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For every extra 500 square feet (46.45 square meters), add 5 pints (2.36 liters). For wet conditions, choose dehumidifiers that can collect 14 pints (6.62 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). Add 6 pints (2.83 liters) for every additional 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For extremely wet humidity conditions, buy dehumidifiers that extract 16 pints (7.57 liters) of water from the air within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). Add 7 pints (3.31 liters) for every extra 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). If your CFM levels are much higher than the CFM levels supported by dehumidifiers you see for purchase, you may need to buy multiple units to properly dehumidify your space. If your CFM levels fall between a range of CFM levels supported by dehumidifiers, you may want to buy a unit with a higher CFM than what you need and run it less often...^IFV If the room is extremely wet and contains standing water or puddles of water, the humidity will be between 90 and 100 percent and is considered "extremely wet." If the room smells and feels wet and contains visible mold, mildew, leaks, and water stains, the humidity level will be between 80 and 90 percent and is classified as "wet." If the room feels very damp and you can clearly smell mold and mildew, the humidity levels will be between 70 and 80 percent and is known as "very damp." You may or may not see visible water stains on walls and on the floor. If the room only smells musty in damp or humid weather, the relative humidity will be between 60 and 70 percent and is considered "moderately damp." From that, you can then determine your air changes per hour (ACH) to calculate the airflow needed to properly dehumidify your room. If your humidity level is extremely wet or between 90 and 100 percent, your ACH will have a value of "6." If your humidity level is considered "wet" or between 80 and 90 percent, your ACH will be a value of "5." When your humidity in the room is considered to be "very damp" and falls between 70 and 80 percent, your ACH will have the value of "4." Moderately damp humidity levels that fall between 60 and 70 percent will have an ACH value of "3." After you have

I have exactly the same question as the previous post. Just purchased my system 2/26/17 have it set on 50, shows 35, fan on low and it runs continuous?? Only about 3 inches of water in the tank after a 20 hour run period.

Asked by: Dixie02
We appreciate your interest in this dehumidifier. If the humidity setting is SET to 50, and the ACTUAL level is 35, then it is likely that the unit is running the FAN, and the compressor is inactive; circulating the air to keep an accurate measurement of the humidity level in the air. Such a small amount of water in the tank is normal when the humidity of the room is so low. Such seems to be normal operation of the product. If there are additional questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
