Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier

LG Dehumidifer LHD45ELY6 won't run

The unit is 4 years old and has always run fine. I haven't used it thru the winter season and when I plugged it in this June all I get is a faint beep and nothing else. Bucket is empty, filter clean - it won't function at all.

I have a Danby dehumidifier model DDR6011R and it runs but I have yet to empty any water from it. I have used other dehumidifiers in the same area and they take out tons of water. What's the problem


1st ck your humidistat settings yes the fan can run but not the compressor to take water out
2nd ck your filters could they be blocked ?
and last but not least if the unit is more than a few years old its not as efficient as newer units and will take much longer to work consider an upgrade to a newer unit , also moisture levels in basements vary due to season , winter not as damp as summer so volume of water removed will change
use an external humidy gauge to verify it working correctly there not so expensive now and can be gotten most places that sell dehumidifyers 70 % rh is considered normal

I have had the Whirlpool GOld dehumidifier for 4 years. It was working great. Recently, I noticed that it stopped working. When plugged it, it trips my GFI socket. I have tried various outlets and checked...


Obviously, there is an electrical short within the unit. Should it be repaired? Yes, if you want continue using it. But, is the cost of troubleshooting, finding the necessary part and repairing it worth it? Most of the time, the cost to repair a dehumidifier is about the same, as what a new one would cost. Now, if purchased an extended warranty, when you originally bought the unit 4 years ago, then you're probably covered for the repair.

In the end, the decision is yours to make.

Dehumidifer Runs but doesn't collect water


Depends on he conditions of the water. These units are relatively inexpensive and typically do not justify the expense of repair. I'ld donate it to an air conditioning school and buy another one.

Maytag Dehumidifer still works, but is leaking


Well life span is 3-15 years depends how long and hard you run them. 45 pint is about 1000sqft basment. rule of thumbs bigger better. run less and do a better job. I would start by filling the bucket and place in a dry shower see if you have a crack. cant find a source for the bucket discontinued this might be your problem. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-M7DH45B2A-%3d%3di1025984&PartID=1025984 Repair cost are about 40-50 and hour!!!! good luck

My LG (LHD45ELY6) dehumidifier turns on OK. I hear somthing running but I donot hear the compressor kick-in.It can run all day NO water in the container. Help anyone. Thanks behove444@hotmail.com


Bring it back for warranty and they will send you a new one. The warranty is 5 years for everything. These LG units have a defective design and I was told the evaporator (or parts thereof) rust and leak. My repair store had rows of LGs in for repair. Most people avoid the hassle and buy another brand. If you have the time to call LG, bring it to a repair shop, wait for an assessment, call back LG for a replacement, you'll get a replacement. But you may have to do it all over again next year -- and until your warranty expires.

Seems to freeze up


I am guessing the system has a leak and you are very low on coolant, I have had the same problem. I assume its still under warranty.

It sounds like there is an issue with the controller board. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. You may want to contact them first instead of opening it up because it could void the warranty. My recommendation is to have this serviced if it is under warranty. They usually will tell you of a service center nearby which will service it free of charge since it is under warranty. If you do not live near a service center they may ship you a replacement and you send your old dehumidifier back to them. Make sure you have your reciept when you contact them so they can verify it is under 5 years old.
