Rated 2 out of 5 by Bill70 Worked great for 3 years then quit
I have used this unit year round in the basement. It worked great for three years.
Last week I noticed the full light was flashing but there was no water in the container.
Unplugged the unit and after repluging it in the motor started but quit after 5 minutes with the light once again flashing.

Rated 1 out of 5 Junk
Worked great for 1 season. Now it's out of warranty and it is JUNK.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kenny optimist Too Noisy
This dehumidifier makes too much noise which I dont like , it was placed in my basement and you can hear the noise from there. The only time you don't hear the noise is when full although it stops itself when it is full.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonathan Great for the humid Southeast.
Liked it so much we bought another identical unit. We live in a large ranch with a finished large section in our basement. We run both in the basement, one in my shop & mud room section and one in the finished area. It keeps the upstairs well dehumidified even though moist air rises. This keeps our home comfortable even at 78 degrees. This provides for a lower electric bill. These units chug a bit, so you can hear them, but I have never had a super quiet humidifier of any brand. This is feature LG might want to develop for future models. Regardless these are great units.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rico Died after about one year
I received this machine as a "swap" because an earlier dehumidifier died while under warranty. (That was nice, though; good customer support). A few days after the warranty on this machine ended (literally, 2 days!), I noticed water condensing on the top panel of the machine.
Turns out that only the top part of the refrigeration coils was working, getting freezing cold. (You can see the white ice forming on the pipe going to the top of the unit; the rest of the coil stayed relatively warm.) The machine was using a lot of electricity (which I knew, since I had it attached to a kWh meter) and not dehumidifying much.
In short, a big disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Birdman A great product
This unit is all I expected and more. It replaced a Whirlpool unit that did a decent job but was very hard to clean. I am on my second season with this model. I am using it downstairs in my home, which is about 1200 sq. ft. and I have it set to 55%. It runs for a while and shuts off, telling me it's doing the job. The humidity level matches my humidity gauge in the hall. I find that I'm emptying it once a day and I use the contents to water my house plants and my garden veggies. I strongly recommend this LG product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Liz These DO NOT last
We purchased one in 2011 and only used it during the summer months (3 months at the most). It was cleaned and put away for the winter. When we pulled it out for the following summer, it worked for a couple of weeks and it died. We thought that the one we got was just a one-off and purchased the same dehumidifier from Home Depot (thinking -- it can't break again? WRONG!!!). The same thing happened to the 2nd one. We are back to using our 5-6 year old dehumidifier. It's loud but it works and has not need any service at all.
