Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective We purchased this for our rec room, which was getting a musty smell whenever it was closed up as the hvac for the rest of the house doesn't extend in to that area. The unit was put to work immediately after it was delivered, and we were pleasantly surprised at just how quickly the smell disappeared and also just how much water was drawn out of the air and into the tank. That tank, incidentally, is of decent capacity, which is good as we aren't able to use the drain hose attachment since there is no place for it to drain. One other thing that should be mentioned is that this unit is a bit on the noisy side, so you don't want to place it near the tv or sleeping quarters if at all possible, but given it's effectiveness in removing moisture, in a relatively large area, that shouldn't be an issue as you should be able to place it far enough away that the noise will be unobtrusive. This is also not an inexpensive unit, but then it's not just a plastic toy like most of the others available, which, incidentally, have considerably less moisture removal abilities and, according to their reviewers, tend to break down frequently, which means you'll just end up having to purchase another one anyway, so why not just go ahead and buy a good one for a bit more in the first place?

When the humidity setting has been met, does the condenser turn off? Does the fan turn off, or does it run all the time, regardless of whether the unit is dehumidifying the air?

Asked by: Jengv
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG PuriCare Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG1 does not operate unless the desired humidity level is lower than the current humidity level. It takes 30 minutes of continuous operation 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

My dehumidifier does not collect any water. Bucket is always dry. I live in humid Florida. What gives ?

Asked by: Wildthing13
We regret your dissatisfaction with the unit. What is the current humidity level in the room? If there is a low humidity level in the room, that moisture that is collected could be used for increased efficiency in the operations of the sealed system, leaving little if anything in the collection tank. Such an instance would be normal operation. If this is not the case, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot the matter further.

I've set the timer for 3 hours. Will the appliance turn off and on every three hours? Or does it shut off until restarted?

Asked by: Jsnyder906
We appreciate your interest in this device. The TIMER feature is designed to switch the operational setting one time. If the Timer is set while the power is OFF, then the machine will turn ON in the set amount of time. Likewise, if the Timer is set while the power is ON, then it will turn OFF when directed. It cannot switch both ways per operational option.

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?
