Summary: The unit works very well in my basement hobby area. It keeps a 750 sq. ft. basement at a steady 50% (or less) humidity. BUT....the reliability of this unit is about two years. I am on my third one, with Winix having replaced the first two under warranty.
Summary: Unit filter allows too much dirt thru closing dehumidifier. Drain hole is too small and unit has overflowed several times with no warning or shutoff. Instructions to use 6" cotton tip to open hole is only a temporary fix. You cannot get to drain pan to properly clean out unit.
Summary: This is the 3rd dehumidifier I have put in the basement in the last 2 years. One quit pulling moisture out of the air after 11 months but they stood by the guarantee and replaced it. The current one works fine could be a little loud if it were in a finished basement.
Summary: I purchased this unit in January of last year. After not even 1.5 years, the compressor froze up and no longer works. As all current dehumifiers, the longitevity is not more than a year or two. I will contact Winix as it is still under warranty.
Summary: Bought my 70 pint model from Costco 2 years ago. It worked ok until the compressor stopped working last week. I would expect the unit last more than 2 years. My old dehumidifier from other brand lasted more than a decade. what a piece of crap "made in Korea"!
Summary: The pump line included is fantastic, longer than others - I run it around the corner into the washer drain for continuous use. Take care to make sure the end of the line is lower than the output on the machine. Far fewer problems than the European brand I had before, intuitive controls -
Summary: Disappointed it stopped working after 6 months. Won't turn on or do anything now and I have to pay for shipping to try and get it fixed. Nowhere local to have it fixed or drop it off. Waste of money. Won't buy another one from them.
