I should have heeded others negative experience

Submitted by Benjamin7 - 8/13/2018

What a nightmare I spent 20+ hours and purchased multiple hoses to try to get this to drain continuously--finally got it hooked up to drain without leaking after more than a week of checking it every few hours to see if it was working or leaking and trying different hoses and teflon tape/plumbers dope. Worked for two days then started leaking internally Poorly designed and failed--I am returning and going with another brand. Stick to TVs--you do those well

Works hard

Submitted by Vinny123 - 8/9/2018

I have only had it for a few weeks now but it really seems to pull moisture from the basement. I have to dump the tank 3x a day. It brings it down from 65 to 45 in a few hours. We had our basement flood for first time in 18 years so this purchase was great choice. The only thing that would make it better would be a pump.

Amazing results

Submitted by Wolfbob - 8/7/2018

For the past 3 months it has been almost non stop rain here in Maryland some of it torrential. As a result the basement of our 100+ house has had water in it and dampness for that same amount of time. It was humid and smelled of mildew. We needed a great dehumidifier. The one we had had for 30+ years was not cutting it. The LG got great reviews and I bought it. After turning it on for the first time it took the humidity from 80 to 45 in 3 days. The area is about 1200 sq/ft. It will run non stop for as long as it takes to keep the basement as comfortable and humid free as it now is. I am very satisfied and amazed at the transformation of this working space from a damp basement to a welcoming pleasant environment.

Submitted by kp70 - 8/7/2018

MAKES LIFE SO EASY

Submitted by Momfriday - 8/5/2018

In the 15 years weve owned our home Im happy to say this LG dehumidifier is the best one weve ever had Our basement is fully finished and furnished and we need to keep a dehumidifier running most of the summer to keep the moisture levels down especially when it rains. This model is very quiet it runs like a charm and its so easy to empty and replace the bucket. It turns on/off automatically and this gives us peace of mind when are away. The wheels make it easy to move as well.

So far so good

Submitted by burnsin67 - 8/4/2018

I bought this on July 4th at Home Depot. I had just tossed two units made by other manufacturers and was looking for one that I could depend on. So far this one by LG works well and I am almost completely satisfied. The one thing that I think does not function as it should is the room humidity indicator. I am comparing the readout to a separate small portable temperature/humidity device that indicates 46 while the LG dehumidifier indicates 55.

Dehumidifier

Submitted by Medpuppies - 8/4/2018

While I have only had this product less than a month I had no idea that I had that much moisture in the air. It does exactly as it was designed to do remove moisture in the air. I also trust the name LG. Easy to empty the bucket and always tells me when emptying is required. I would buy this electronic item again.

Sleek and quiet

Submitted by RIchG50 - 8/3/2018

Ive purchased this dehumidifier about a month ago and so far I am very pleased with it. I bought the unit from Home Depot after my old one stopped working. The LG dehumidifier was well-packed and easy to set up. It worked quietly and the bucket is easy to access empty and replace. Having used several other brands in the past I found it a little odd that the fan continues to run even when the unit brings the humidity level down to the set amount. The compressor will shut off but the fan will continue to run. LG support said this was normal and did not change its energy rating. I would recommend a slightly brighter water full light. My unit is in my basement and unlike my old unit I cant tell when the red light is on unless I walk over to within a few feet of the unit. Overall the unit has kept the humidity level at a constant level and appears to work very efficiently.

efficient and quite but with some negatives

Submitted by Bilal I - 7/31/2018

I had this dehumidifier for about 2 weeks. efficient : 5/5 looks : 5/5 noise : 5/5 Hose connector : 3/5 heat generation: 3/5 packing: 1/5 longevity: NA Value: 4/5 I had tried several dehumidifiers over the last 15 years. I came to the conclusion that most dehumidifiers fail anywhere from 1-4 years. I cant comment on longevity of this this unit it remains to be seen. I ordered this unit from Amazon it arrived packaged in the same package you would expect to see if you buy it from your local store not very protective. The unit had 3 dents when unpackaged. This was a big disappointment initially. It is more expensive than other equivalent units. However it is very efficient and the most powerful unit I have owned the amount of water it removes is simply amazing however I guess this comes with a limitation the excessive heat it generates. I never remember my basement being that warm. The unit is the best looking dehumidifier available in my opinion I really like the black color which makes it stand out. One negative is the hose connection. It feels that it is made of cheap plastic it takes some time to align and connect the hose to the unit.

Submitted by jsfishers - 7/30/2018

About a month ago I replaced my aging dehumidifier with this one and am very pleased. I have it on a hose instead of the bucket draining into a condensate pump and this keeps my basement between 39 - 46 relative humidity down from ~58 - 63. Very nice Its quiet too. Would buy again.

Excellent Performance so Far

Submitted by RNLee - 7/29/2018

I purchased this dehumidifier about a month ago for our lake house which we visit every two weeks or so. We previously had two dehumidifiers of a different brand which were highly rated. The first one lasted 15 months replaced under extended warranty and the second lasted 12.5 months replaced under manufacturers warranty. This dehumidifier works differently than the other brands in that the fan runs continuously except for the one hour per day of automatic disabling. The compressor comes on when the humidity exceeds the selected level. I have a separate humidity sensor which records high and low values. With the LG humidifier the difference between the high and low readings was less than with the previous two dehumidifiers. We dont object to the fan noise and the compressor noise in more noticeable but not excessive. The unit is in the bathroom next to our bedroom and we have run it while we sleep. We didnt notice it as much as we did the two previous units of another brand. I use a hose to drain directly into my shower which works fine. Fortunately I dont need a pump. Another feature that I like is that the LG dehumidifier automatically resets when there is a power outage. We experience somewhat frequent interruptions at the lake house. Thus far we are well pleased. But well need to wait to see if it outlasts the two previous units seems like this wouldnt be a challenge.

Peace and Quiet and Dry Air

Submitted by GM71 - 7/29/2018

I bought this dehumidifier based on great reviews to replace an old unit that started to trip the circuit breaker after a few hours of running. It is used in a 1500 sq ft unfinished basement so the nice looks of the unit is not important to me but the energy star rating is plus I got a rebate check from my electric utility company. I have this machine hooked up to a hose into a sump pump so I dont need to regularly empty the bucket. My favorite feature is the quiet operation even with the fan on high. I could hear my old machine start up and run from the upstairs bedroom at night. Now I dont hear any noise. Even when Im in basement I can only hear the fan and a faint compressor hum when I walk over to the corner where the machine is located. I like the top panel display that shows me the status of the machine at a glance. Another feature I got to appreciate recently is the auto start after a power failure. A storm knocked out power for 10 hours a few days ago and when the power was restored the dehumidifier came back online. Im very happy with my purchase and feel confident I made a good choice going with LG. Ive had a LG washer and dryer for over 10 years with no problems so Im expecting years of trouble free service with my dehumidifier.

Great product

Submitted by Pleased718 - 7/28/2018

I bought this dehumidifier about a month ago to help keep moisture to a minimum in my refinished basement. My previous dehumidifier stopped working after about 10 to 12 years. It was also an LG so I wanted another one to stand up to the name. I am very pleased with this one. It runs quiet and I can set the humidity level where I want. The humidity level registers with a red display light on getting approximately 1700 sq. ft. to that level. The fan can be set on high or low. The only difference from my old one is I can not set it to run for 2 or 4 hours on auto where it comes back on as needed. This one runs constantly for 23 hours and then shuts off and shuts the compressor down to cool before it starts up again. I havent gotten my electric bill yet but hopefully it will stand up to energy quality

Great Unit but poor bucket system

Submitted by Salty7 - 7/19/2018

I have used the dehumidifier for 3 weeks now and it performs quietly and efficiently. I also have another brand dehumidifier which I can compare to. The bucket on the LG model is clumsy and difficult to get out without spilling any water so it takes some practice. Also the bucket is much smaller than my other unit. If a redesign of the bucket system was made then it would be a wonderful overall product.

Submitted by slackde - 7/16/2018

I recently purchased the dehumidifier and was very pleased with the appliance. It was easy to set up and start up. I do find that the humidity reading may not be at all accurate. I have a thermometer/humidity gauge nearby and the two are routinely 15 different. Im not sure which to believe.

Submitted by Bobnic - 7/14/2018

This replaced my previous dehumidifier which no longer was getting the humidity in my large basement below 70. This LG is keeping it at between 50-55. It is much quieter than my previous unit. As indicated in other reviews the fan does stay on constantly which is an apparent design feature. Despite that it uses about 200 watts less than my previous unit also 70 pint and Im getting a $25 rebate from my electric company PSEG.

Hi-Tech dehumidifier

Submitted by Mamadoc - 7/13/2018

We bought this dehumidifier to replace an old one. We live in a damp climate and need a dehumidifier for our basement. We have used it for about a month during our humid summer. It has been working very well. It was easy to set upwe use the drain feature. Since were away from home for the winter we like the timer and its auto-turnoff features. The wheels make it easy to move. My only recommendation is that it should include a drain hose.

Doing the job

Submitted by 1PMS - 7/13/2018

I have used the unit for a few weeks with these results: humidity levels were reduced from around 75 to 40 in a large basement. The lower humidity was achieved in a few days and has been retained while high humidity was experienced in the neighborhood. To date the unit has not to my knowledge shut off since it was installed raising some concern.

good

Submitted by rcarson101 - 7/11/2018

Something I could not foresee was how clumsy it is to remove the water bucket from the unit to empty it. Having to tilt the bucket so far over to one side to disengage it from its mounting position in the body of the unit makes it easy to spill water when the bucket is near full. Another thing the cover of the water bucket that has to be removed before emptying it is awkward and not really customer friendly enough for me. After all this is a pricey unit. I expected more from LG. Both of these conditions I have mentioned were in NO WAY evident to me before I forked over the money to pay for this item carted it home and unpacked it. I am a bit disappointed in this product.

Effective ergonomic controls and stylish

Submitted by Beef1 - 7/11/2018

After having had three other brands fail on me over the last seven years all seemingly due to loss of refrigerant despite having purchased premium models I decided to consult Consumer Reports for my next purchase. This model was at the top and the general reviews on Amazon were similarly positive so I made the purchase. Set-up was dirt simple with the possible exception of some awkwardness in attaching the continuous drain hose connection. Controls are so easy to read and actually make intuitive sense. The unit is relatively quiet even with the fan on high. I put it in a relatively large and damp basement about ten days ago and the humidity has dropped from almost 70 to now holding at the 45 set point. Early on as it was pulling out a lot of moisture the auto-defrost feature kicked in quite a bit accomplishing what it needed to do. I havent seen a defrost cycle in about four days now. I like the black and stylish clean design. Almost seems a shame to keep it stashed down in the basement.

Good product with a few drawbacks

Submitted by Traveler50 - 7/10/2018

I purchased this dehumidifier approximately one month ago to replace an LG I purchased this dehumidifier approximately one month ago to replace an LG dehumidifier that lasted approximately nine years. So far the unit is working well. It is quiet the display panel is easy to read the water collection bucket is easy to remove and the unit has a solid build. I also like the black color of the unit as it is a pleasant change to the porcelain white units sold almost exclusively by all other manufacturers. One feature I do not like about the unit - which prevents me from giving it five stars - is that despite reaching the desired set humidity level the fan continues to run. Not sure the purpose of this other than to limit the on/off cycles of the compressor. My previous LG unit stopped running after the preset humidity level was reached and then automatically restarted when the humidity level rose. A great feature and it saved on electricity. I also agree with a previous reviewer who took issue with the accuracy of the humidity level displayed by the unit. I do not believe it is accurate. Finally I do not like the timing function on this unit. You can set it to run from 1-12 hours. It then stops. My previous LG had two run cycles of 2 or 4 hours i.e. it would run for the preset hours then shut off completely for the 2 or 4 hours and the cycle would repeat itself until you changed the setting. Despite the above listed drawbacks of the unit I am pleased with the unit and hope that it lasts as long as my previous LG.

Love this

Submitted by Ciesel - 7/10/2018

I bought an LG dehumidifier 10 year ago and loved that one but wore it out as it ran year round. So of course I would buy another LG love the new features added yes u pay a lil more but well worth it when its as reliable as it is. Have bought previous Brands prior to my LGs and theyve only lasted a year so might as well spend a little extra extra money to get that peace of mind. Well worth the money

Neat design - easy to handle

Submitted by RGM DEL - 7/9/2018

This model was a replacement for an older model LG dehumidifier. That quit after seven+ years of operation. One switch- full bucket - failed and it did not make sense to spend money take it to a distant service center. The unit works well and is reasonably quiet. The feature for continuous drainage - lawn hose connection - could be designed better by having male end sticking out of the cabinet. But with some effort the connection was made and it is working well. LG could improve its instruction booklet - especially for seniors.

Outstanding performance

Submitted by GF Jeff - 7/9/2018

The LG Dehumidifier UD701KOG3 is an amazing dehumidifier. The performance design and user friendly features take this dehumidifier to a whole new level. I purchased it 2 months ago and have been using it in a 1500 sq ft basement. The LG reduces the humidity by 25 effortlessly and quietly. I highly recommend the LG humidifier.

Does the job quietly and effectively.

Submitted by Katrin123 - 7/8/2018

I put this LG UD701KO3G in my Midwest 1000 sq ft basement about a 3 weeks ago. Its been pulling out at least 13 pints of water per day and keeping the humidity at around 45 at the low fan setting - quietly. I could have said about almost the same things about the previous 2 humidifiers different brands I purchased which each lasted 2 years. Time will tell about the LGs longevity -to hedge my bet I purchased the extended warranty.

Very happy with this dehumidifier

Submitted by BruceW - 7/4/2018

Have had the LG UD701KO3G for just over a month and it has performed very well in keeping the humidity in our approximately 1000 square foot basement.under control. When the dehumidifier was first turned on the humidity was close to 70 but was reduced to the 50 set point within a couple of hours. Humidity readings using an independent hygrometer have stayed within +- 5 of the dehumidifier set point thru some very humid days and nights.
