Works great!We bought this around Christmas for our basement and we're so pleased with it! The basement is always cold and damp..a room you dont really want to spend time in...but with this dehumidifier..it pulls buckets of water out of the air..so impressed! We leave it running nonstop..it makes a little music note sound when bucket full..I dump it and it's back to work. You will be pleased!

I love it!I bought this several weeks ago and am totally amazed at how much water it takes out of the air. My wood floors were rising, as I was not running my a/c, a little chilly here is Florida at that time. Once I turned it on for a couple of days, the floors started to go back down. I am still running it at least 7 hours a day and am still amazed at how much water it take out of the air. I couldn't be happier with this de humidifier.

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

The auto defrost light came on and the temperature is not below 41degrees. Will the compressor come back on automatically when the light goes off?
Asked by: Clau47
Does this LG dehumidifer have a hook-up to use a garden hose to drain the water?
Also will this dehumidifer shut off when the set humidity level is reached, and then turn back on when humidity goes back up?
