What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad experience We bought this unit and thought we had a great unit and then purchased 2 more. The first quit working after 18 months. OUT OF WARRANTY AND NO ONE WILL REPAIR. To much for a throw away item. Very dissatisfied and will be moving to a new brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dehumidifies well. Convoluted setup. Bad Wifi App. The ONLY reason why I bought a new dehumidifier is to have web based remote monitoring and control of my unit and basement humidity while gone for the off-season. My old one works fine. Before buying this unit I downloaded the manual in hopes of getting an overview of its web/wifi capabilities. But the manual is lacking info about what can be done via the ThinQ app and really only states one sentence: "Use the Settings feature to manage product or application settings." Gee, thanks. In a leap of faith, I bought the unit based on other successful wifi items I have (such as thermostats). I am very disappointed at the lack of feedback and features on the wifi app. You can turn it on/off, set a schedule, set humidity target and do a unit diagnostic. But it does not relay other information, such as the need to check the filter, whether is "actually" running or not and if there was some other fault, like the bucket full sensor. How you could build an app that goes to all the trouble and added technology and programming to communicate with the unit (or visa-versa), and then leave off half of the information and feedback as per the display of the unit? That reality baffles me. Also I have an above average aptitude for these kinds of things and setups, and even so can usually work my way through poorly documented setup, as in the case of this unit. However, I really had to try some patience on this unit and it's unfortunate and convoluted procedure to get it connected to my WIFI. There are also many instances of poorly explained procedures. For example if you want to use the pump option instead of the bucket or the drain, step 6 says "The pump will continue to operate if the water bucket is removed" but one inch to the right, a notes bullet point says: "The pump only operates when the water bucket is full," meaning the water bucket does does have to be in place, in order for the pump to work. Now that I have really examined the unit and the flow of water, I understand that the water always goes in the bucket and then is either dumped by hand or gravity drained, or pumped, but in all cases the bucket in place and filling up is always part of the process. It would be helpful to actually point that out and definitely not helpful for the manual to inadvertently contradict itself. A frustrating piece of equipment that falls short of my expectation, and very poorly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good It's very good a little loud sounds like the ac window units but overall it works good and the humming does put me to sleep.

LG webpage indicates that the ThinQ App will indicate Bucket Full, but reviews indicate that it does NOT ? Please confirm if this function appears on the WiFi App

Asked by: Team P
Regrettably, there is nothing on our product detail page for the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 nor in its owner's manual stating that the LG SmartThinQ® app will indicate 'Bucket Full'...^Ivan

Does the fan run continuously when the unit is on? In other words, when the desired humidity level is reached and the compressor shuts off does the fan also shut off in a few minutes and then restart when the compressor comes on again?

Asked by: Jim7303
The compressor and the fan for the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 do not automatically shut off when the desired humidity level is reached. This unit takes about 30 minutes to reach your desired humidity and it has a Timer button that can be used to turn the unit off after a set time. The Timer function can also be set using the LG ThinQ application from your smartphone. 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...^Ivan

The review titled "problem with alert" for the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 is a complaint about the alert that states "There is an alert that makes a loud chiming noise when the bucket is full. This is meant as an alert for those manually emptying the water bucket. For those using the automatic pump, this alert can wake you in the middle of the night, maybe multiple times. Horrible." This is the design for the dehumidifier and is not a problem, but more a complaint about the design of the product if you have the dehumidifier installed in your bedroom. If the dehumidifier is installed in another room, it will not be an issue and the design has not been changed on this model...^IFV

Is this an air conditioner? 

Asked by: John224
No. It's a de-humidifier to remove humidtiy from the air. This is typically needed during summer time in some regions such as the east coast.

A user in the Reviews section indicated that this unit can be put in Auto mode vs. Manual mode so that the fan is not running continuously. Is this correct, and if so, how do you put the unit in Auto mode vs. Manual mode?

Asked by: luna2000
Regrettably, the owner's manual for the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 does not have any instructions about switching from Auto Mode to Manual Mode for this unit. It does not have anything about a Manual Mode on this unit...^IFV

Is the pump capable of pumping the water upwards (vertical) approximately 10 feet? It is not clear whether it is a true pump or simply a drain.

Asked by: CherD
The end of the pump hose when using the built-in pump in the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 cannot be installed higher than 16 1/4 ft. (5m). Doing so could result in leaks or product damage...^IFV

does this product raise the humidity in the room if it goes below low range setting?

Asked by: Ernie Hippner
The LG Dehumidifier features large, clear displays to easily check and control humidity levels. It does not have a humidifier to raise the humidity.
