Works well but water drawer stuck and repair estimate larger than value of unit

Health Educator "Health Educator", Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: The unit works well enough (in fact, so well that it cracked the plaster in our bathroom when the setting for water extraction was too high). We used the unit about the equivalent of a week's worth of time over a period of about five years. This year, after using it, the water drawer got stuck, and we are unable to get the water out. I called LG, which referred us to a local repair person.

Ran for 2 years, then stopped working

  • Summary: Appears to be refrigerant leak. Seems from the reviews that it is a common problem. Planned obsolescence at work. Looks like this is the same model as the Goldstar with the same issues. Some have figured out how to recharge the refrigerant.

Shoddy quality

  • Summary: Same deal here, ran for 2 years ok, now the compressor and fan just runs and runs but no moisture removal. Appears to be a refrigerant leak, and go figure it is R22! Don't buy one of these, they're crap.

A piece of junk

coffeelover "starbucks", Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I purchased my first LG dehumidifier in July of 2009 and it worked great for the rest of the summer. We put the unit away in September and got it out in May of 2010. It worked for about 3 weeks but then quit taking the humidity out. I contacted LG and they said to take it to get repaired. The only problem was the place LG referred me to was no longer doing repairs. So, LG sent me a replacement unit and I returned the defective one.

LG 459ELY 9 4 years old now

Connie Philpot, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: When I moved into our current residence, the basement was very damp. Our old dehmidifier did not keep up, running constantly. I purchased an LG because I found their products to be pretty reliable for the price (commercial side). This current unit runs about 30/70 during damp weather and has not presented many problems. CONS: Putting the drain hose in was tricky and it does not "fit" tight. If you move the unit around, the hose can come lose.

broke just after warranty expired

yvette, Amazon

  • Summary: My LD450EAL dehumidifier worked great for just over one year. It was very noisy but it took lots of dampness out of my basement. I used it a lot, basically 24/7. It broke after just one year, right after the warranty expired. It is now basically a large, heavy piece of garbage that I will have to pay to throw into the landfill. Alternatively, I could pay the equivalent of the cost of a new dehumidifier to try to repair it.

Doesnt Work

  • Summary: Only worked for about twelve months or so. I suppose to be expected for the price but would be nice for things this size not to end up in a landfill after only a year.

Over all the good out weighs the bad

AlaVol, Amazon

  • Summary: This LG 45 pint dehumidifier works really well collecting moisture and second the warranty does actually cover labor and parts for the full 5 years. I know because mine started freezing up after 3 years and I was able to take it to a per-approved repair shop and it didn't cost me anything.

Stay away from LG dehumidifiers

Peter Chang "peter", Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought the first unit from Home Depot in 2008 and it stopped working in 2011. So, I called LG and got a remanufactured replacement unit and sent the first unit back to LG. The second unit broke down in one year, and I had to bring it to LG designated repaire shop, an hour away from my home, to get the freon recharged. Then, the humidistat quit working, and I had it serviced again; and 2 months later, the unit quit working all together.
