i have tried for hours and hours and cannot find anything to make me understand how to clean the sand, backwash etc before putting up the pool again this year. i do want to get it wright this year!!
This one is easy...
You simply fill your pool to the normal level which is at the top of the skimmer.
Now apply the "Shock" treatment to begin clearing the water.
With the pool full, attach the hose for back flushing to the filter 'Outlet" or discharge side and then move the selector handle to the "backwash" position and turn the pump on. It will begin discharging water out of the hose. Run it this way until it begins sucking air.
You have now "backwashed" your filter.
Fill the pool back to the normal level and finish treating water to get the Ph and Chlorine right.

I understand that your dehumidifier continuously is set at 50-60 and the clean filter light has not stopped. I would like to ask you some additional questions in order to provide you better assistance. First, does the appliance still collect water? Secondly, have you tried to reset the appliance? I look forward to your comment back so that I can further help you. -Matt
Hello Ann, this is JK. I understand that you are looking for the location of the filter in a dehumidifier. Generally, you will need to remove the bucket to be able to reach under to remove the filter. Please refer to your owner's manual for more detailed care and cleaning instructions. Hope this helps!
To locate the filter: Shut unit off. Remove "bucket". You should find a "tab" at top of where bucket goes in middle front of unit. Pull down to remove tab of Filter. Clean thoroughly and dry Filter before re installation. Visually inspect the coils and condenser while filter is out ( a flashlight helps). If it looks slightly dusty or like covered in felt, then it would be wise to remove front and rear covers and give the coils and condenser a thorough cleaning.
What is the specific problem? Is no water being collected by the dehumidifier or do you have another issue?
Make sure that the dehumidifier is in a room in the operating temperature range (at or above 44 degrees F). Make sure that the room door and windows are closed and that the room is not larger than 2200 square feet. Make sure that the collection bucket not full and is properly seated in the dehumidifier. Check and clean the air filter on the dehumidifier. (Vacuum the filter or rinse under running water three times. Then wait until dry to replace it in the dehumidifier.) Look at the coils of the dehumidifier. If you have ice on the coils, defrost the unit (turn off, unplug and wait for it to melt). If the ice reforms quickly, you may have a leak in the coolant system. Then the unit needs repair.
Next make sure that you have good air flow around the dehumidifier and that the desired humidity set point is lower than the humidity of the room.
The air intake filter is one of 2 places. In either case, it's behind the front louvers
1. Remove the water collection bucket from it's holder. Look up into the bucket holder, just behind the front louvers. You should see what looks like a plastic frame. It may have a pull tab handle. In any event, the is the filter frame. Pull it straight down and out. It can be cleaned with a vacuum or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid, rinse and allow to completely dry before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so, could damage the unit.
2, Look on the right hand side of the unit's cabinet, just behind the louvers. If you see what appears to be a op open door, the filter is behind that door. Follow the above directions for cleaning the filter.
To remove the filter. remove the water bucket. Then looh at the top of the water bucket cavity. You will see a small plastic pull type handle. This is the plastic frame for the air intake filter. Pull it down to remove frame and the filter. After washing an rinsing the filter, be sire it's completely dry, before installing it. Be sure you have turned the unit OFF and unplugged it before removing the filter. http://www.lg.com/us/appliances/dehumidifiers/LG-LHD45EL.jsp
To help you in the future, I have included a link to your Owners Manual. You can download and print it for future reference. Once the link opens look to the right on the page for Dehumidifiers Manual English and click on the link.
Pool dehumidifiers are similar to an air conditioning unit, but often have a few different bells and whistles that make them a different animal to work on...they are far beyond the scope of even the above average DIY Joe....
You need to call a QUALIFIED service technician that has experience with pool dehumidifers...
