Noise vibrations in dehumidifer

We have a gold star dehumidifier about 6 years old. It has worked beautifully and was very quiet. Now it is making loud vibration sounds and the cool air being released turns hot after about 1-2 minutes of turning on. The sides of the unit are very cold, like ice is forming, maybe?

Thank you for your help.

    noise when drippan is empty

  • Amanda Krieg Sep 10, 2008

    I have the same dehumidifier and have only had it for 92 days. Recently, the noise that it makes is very loud. I have not noticed any ice build up or that the air release is any different. I tried to return it to Wal-Mart where it was purchased but they are telling me that it is past the 90 days and I have to get help from the manufacturer. Can you please help me?

Whirlpool dehumidifier makes a lot of noise when running and vibrating, dehumidifier is only 4 years old it does take out the water but very noisey any way to quiet it down?


Hi,
When the compressors start to go bad they often start to get very loud also...the cost to replace the compressor will probably be more then a new unit...

Our dehumidifier has started making more noise than it used to, it gets very hot, and doesn't collect any water. It's only 4 1/2 years old. It's a Gold Star DH 5010. We've tried cleaning the filter. That...

Yes they should last longer than that, but the sad thing is that they don't make anything like they used too...just check out all the problems in this site for a few minutes...most of the problems should never happen...

I have a 2yr old gold star dehumidifer #dh305y6 it won't turn on power is good at plug. held in red bucket switch manually.but it still won't kick on.


If you can remove cabinet, check glass fuse on power supply board.

After that it is probably the power supply board or the control board - see a service department

Gold stare dehumidifer


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.
