Question about LG LD301EL Dehumidifier
I have a two-year old LG LD301EL 30-pint dehumidifier, and it was flashing CH 01. I followed advice I found on this forum, and replaced the sensor assembly, and it now flashes CH 67. Any advice as to what could be causing this? Is this just an electrical short? Seems like I am chasing my tail. Thanks!

Change the sensor assembly and all will be fine, about $30 from Appliance Factory Parts on line store, about an hour to do, all that is needed is Phillips screw driver to take unit apart.

Here is a manual for your machine, in case you don't have one:
You have to join and log in to the following site, but they claim to have 2 answers:
Here's what one person said about the code on webogdery.com:
Unit keeps saying bucket full with nothing in it and it will have a CH 01 code come up on the display. NO reference to it in manual. Call customer NO service and they say to take it to a repair shop 1 1/2 hour drive away. I would not recomend this unit to anyone unless you like to keep buying new ones every year or so.
Not good news, but someone said the unit has a 5 year warranty, so you might check into that.
Another person said check the sensors:
1. The sensor that stops the unit when the water reservoir is removed is flimsy, often it does not detect that the reservoir is inserted back, one has to fiddle with the reservoir till the sensor finally "catches on", but then every now and then the mechanism will lock and will be unable to detect that the reservoir is full, resulting in a water spill.
It doesn't seem like anyone has figured out this code, but it has to be a sensor, or bad part, if you can just figure it out.
Good luck, hope some of this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

That is the error for a bad sensor assembly. This is about $30 from a few sources.
As an example (I have no idea how close this may be to you)
It requires a bit of work to replace. Most of that just getting everything apart. Maybe an hour or two if you do it. If you aren't handy with a screwdriver any shop can do this as well.
