LG has the owner's manual available online for this model. The website would not let me copy the shortcut for the manual so I will provide you with a link to their support page:

http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp

After you go to this page click on the "Owner's Manuals" link.

Then under product select dehumidifier.

Under Model No. type in LD65EL

Now click search.

You sould now be on the correct page that has your manual listed. You will want to click on the file that ends in .PDF. This is a downloadable version so you can print it on your computer. Make sure that you have adobe reader to read this file. If you do not here is a link to adobe reader:

I've misplaced the owner's manual on a DEN 500 P. What is a good basement setting for Summer in Central Ohio? Is a manual available on line?


I bought a cheap digital humidistat at Walmart to keep an eye on the humidity in my basement. I hung it on the wall not too near my dehumidifier. I have found that the settings on the dehumidifier are misleading, but I found a setting that keeps my humidity between 40% and 55% (at around 70 degrees), as measured by the humidistat.

My husband saids run the dehumifier on low setting to take out dampness in the basement? I said no, run the dehumifier on higher setting like 50 or 60 to take more water out of he basement? What should...


Actually, your husband is correct. The settings reflect the amount of humidity you want to remain in the house. I really don't think you want to leave 50 to 60% humidity in the house.

35% removes the greatest amount of humidity.

I've been reading the other questions on this website. Like many others, our 54501 dehumidifier turns on and all controls still work. We just cleaned the filter but it does not collect water. I read...


No, it may mean that you don't have the humidity extraction level set low enough. The lower the setting, the more humidity it will extract. Try setting the extraction level at 35%, to see if the compressor turns ON.

If yours is being used in a basement, the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees. Dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures (Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor, onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this problem.

I hope this helps you further troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Don, unless your dehumidifier is a Low temperature model, that very well may be the problem.
The air temp in a basement at floor level is colder than that chest level. Dehumidifiers don't work well at temperatures at 40 degrees F or less. Raising the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that is strong enough to handle it's weight, plus a full tank of water, will generally solve the problem. The higher up you can safely put it, the better. Also, lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. As 50% is just not low enough in a basement application.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

HI, I bought a AD50USV gold dehumidifier at Canadian Tire 2 years ago. Last weekend when I went down to my basement there was water around the machine on my carpet! It was leaking but I cannot find the...


What has happened is the the tubing that fills the bucket is clogged. To solve this, first turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. Then, remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers


Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Whirlpool Gold Dehumidifier -The lights are all working, no fan? Is there a reset ?


You have what Whirlpool calls a Type 3 Control Panel. If you don't have the unit operating in Continuous Mode, the fan will operate only, when the compressor turns on to extract the humidity, based on the level of extraction you have it set on. If you haven't already,.set the control on Maximum and Continuous Mode.

If that doesn't solve the problem, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, the 15 minute timeout, allowed the unit to reset itself and revert back to the original factory settings. If so, you can set the controls as you like.

To further assist you, I have an included a link to your Owner's Manual, in case you have misplaced your. You can download and print it for future reference.

It's 7 years old and has severed you well. Repairs on a unit that old, cold cost as much as a new unit. That's, if the parts are still available for a 7 year old dehumidifier.

As far as advice is concerned ... I agree with you. Since you're using it primarily in a basement. Shop for a low temperature unit. That's one that will function well, between 40 & 60 degrees F. I say this, because the ambient air temperature at floor level in a basement, can be 5 to 8 degrees cooler than the air temperature at chest level. Regular dehumidifiers don't function well at the temperatures I referenced above.

The other features you want to look at is energy efficiency and the square footage or cubic footage it's rated to handle. I would suggest, no matter what you buy, if an extended warranty is available ...buy it. It could be money well spent. Then, only the Routine Maintenance is up to you. Which means, don't misplace your owner's Manual.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

You may have the humidity/moisture level set to high. Try lowering it to 35%. Or if you don't have a LED Screen on your unit, turn it to maximum.

In addition, most dehumidifiers don't work well if the air temperature is between 40 & 60 degrees F. Keep in mind, the temperature at floor level in a basement is colder that the air temperature at chest high level. Raising the unit up, off the floor on something sturdy enough to handle the weight (with a full tank of water) and the vibration, may help.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

What should I set it at


If there is actual water in the basement, any setting will probably cause the unit to run. I would suggest setting it around 60%, and turn it up as you feel necessary. Hope this helps
