What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Looking but will come apart I purchased this in September 2021. It looked fine when it arrived. After a few months of use, the front and back of the cabinet have separated leaving a 1/2 inch gap. The gap is exposing internal electronics - a finger or implement can be inserted into the electrical components posing a danger. Dust or debris can enter it. The top electronics control panel is unstable. Even though under warranty LG will not repair or replace, saying this issue is "cosmetic." LG DOES NOT STAND BEHIND ITS PRODUCT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dehumidifier I bought it 2 weeks ago and it removed more than 2 Gallons of water everyday since then, I did not realized the level of humidity in my house. The bucket is well engineered, it is very easy to remove and put back, this is a plus when you have to empty the bucket at least twice a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low power consumption I bought this because of its energy efficiency. It uses 535 kwh compared to my older model which used 680. It is also very easy to use and quiet to run. I ca always trust LG. I also have an LG refrigerator and washer and dryer.

Do you make a larger unit, such as 70 pint per day?

Asked by: Jac0408
Regrettably, we no longer manufacture any LG PuriCare 70 Pint Dehumidifiersanymore and LG PuriCare 50 Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 and the LG PuriCare™ 50 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD501KOG5 are the only dehumidifiers that we manufacture that are in our current lineup. You can check to see if the Home Depot still carries the LG PuriCare 70 Pint Clear Bucket with Handle Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 if they haven't discontinued the unit...^Ivan

I have been running this dehumidifier for a week now. My humidity gauge reads 38% but the dehumidifier reads a constant 50%. I have pre set it to 35% yet it continues to run indicating 50%. I am only getting about a quart of water after 10-11 hours.

I just purchased this model. Why would there be no auto shut off on this unit when desired humidity level is reached. Seems my only option is to continuously look until desired level reached then turn off manually

Is this meant for only one room or how many Square Ft. Does it service?

Asked by: jgh51
As indicated in the title, the LG PuriCare™ 50 Pint Dehumidifier has a dehumidification capacity of 50 pints per day. Dehumidifier capacity is rated by the amount of moisture removed in 24 hours, so a 50-pint humidifier is rated to remove 50 pints of moisture in one day. A dehumidifier's capacity loosely indicates how large of a space it will cover in square feet. Therefore, if you know the square footage of the area you'd like to dehumidify, you can get a loose idea of the capacity you will need. You will first need to measure the area where you want to operate the dehumidifier. Choosing a dehumidifier based on the size of your space and its capacity alone isn't enough. To find the absolute best solution, you'll also need to consider your room's conditions. In other words, You'll need to take the size of the space into account as well as the level of dampness. You can actually measure room humidity levels with a simple room humidity monitor or a humidity gauge, also known as a hygrometer. To find out the size of your room in square feet by measuring the length and width of your room and multiply them. A dehumidifier’s performance is greatly affected by both the size and humidity level of a particular area. A 50-pint Dehumidifier is recommended for a 500 sq. ft area that is very damp with a 70-80% Humidity level in which you have wet spots on the walls or floors. It is recommended for areas up to 2000 square feet that smell musty and feel damp all the time. These are places where you have experienced mold growth in the past or where moisture is visible on the walls...^IFV

Living in the tri-state area, humidity is a problem during spring/summer, dryness in fall/winter. I'm looking for a unit that can both dehumidify but equally add humidity to a room if it notices uncomfortable levels. Does this do that?

Asked by: The Jeffrey
The LG PuriCare™ 50* Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD501KOG5 only dehumidifies, it does not humidify. You can adjust your desired humidity level in 5-percent increments from 30-80%. An indoor humidity level of 30 - 40% is recommended in the winter months and depending on your personal preferences, it may be even higher. If you need to add moisture to your room, you will need a large room humidifier. A humidifier will rapidly increase the moisture in the air and help maintain a comfortable level of humidity...^IFV
