Question about LG DH404E Dehumidifier
The machine is year old or less. Does not condense water. Does not freeze coils. Machine starts up gets loud banging kind of sound gets louder then after while entire machine shuts down. I opened back up to watch. SAme procedure. Compressor is making the noise. Ratling around must not have any freon in it I assume. Will it be more to repair leak and fill or buy another brand. Or is goldstar maker liable.
It sounds like an issue with the control bord. This dehumidifier should have a 5 year warranty through LG. You will need to have this serviced. If it is under warranty by LG they will either refer you to a local repair shop and they will pay for the repair or they will replace it if you do not have a repair shop in your area. Call them and explain the problem to them. Make sure that you have your reciept. Here is the contact information for LG:

It sounds like the compressor has gone bad and will not start..

I found the model # on my Goldstar DH304 at the top of a sticker on the inside of the unit behind the bucket. Mine has stopped working too. I'm awaiting an answer to my problem but after some research it seems that unless the filter and/or coils simply need cleaned, there is lttle that can be economically repaired. Good luck.
