Question about LG LD40E Dehumidifier
After running my LG dehumidifier for 2 days (& removing 3 buckets of water) my basement temp is hotter than when I started. I was expecting the basement to be cooler & dryer - HELP !!! I made sure there are no obstructions to the air flow. The discharge air at the back of the dehumidifier is warm (possible caused from tthe fan being located above the compressor??)
A Dehumidifier will not cool your basement, just make it seem cooler at the same temp. Your dehumidifier may be undersized even for that purpose.
You need an AC outlet of a central AC in your basement, or a window unit if there are windows.
Warm air at discharge is normal.

SOURCE: Water bucket - proper seating
Try re-seating the bucket. I have found some LG models that if not seated all of the way will sometimes keep running and think the bucket is not full even when it is. On the models that I have seen do it the problem is usually the left side of the bucket not engaging all of the way. When you reseat the bucket, feel where the bucket meets the dehumidifier on each side and make sure they are even. If one feels like it is sticking out further than the other and you cannot push it in any more pull the bucket out and try and reseat it again until both sides are flush with the dehumidifier. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.
Thanks - Tech101

There must be a blockage in the hose causing the water to back up and flow into the bucket. Try pushing a flexble peice of wire through the hose to unblock it.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an LG
Try to see if operating the float lever by hand can make it turn off the 'bucket full' message. Maybe use a rubber band or tape to keep it in the on position vs. the 'bucket full' off position.
Check to see if the bucket has to be inserted for the unit to operate, and if the bucket has a nozzle to hook a hose up to at the bottom. I have a dehumidifier of a different brand that has this feature that works with the bucket in, but with the drain nozzle on the bucket connected to a plastic tube that leads to a drain for continuous operation without having to empty the bucket.
How is your hose attached to the unit if it isn't attached to the bucket?
Good luck on this repair.
