Question about LG Goldstar LD65EL Dehumidifier
When our dehumidifier is plugged in and turned on, the % Present shows "CH" and the % Set shows "01". The filter, coils, and bucket have been cleaned.
This will need to be serviced. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. 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.

Had the same problem and just replaced the part tonight. Part is here: http://www.repairclinic.com/LG-Dehumidifier-Model-LHD45ELY8-ID-865500-Sensor-Thermistor-Parts. You can locate your model # by pulling bucket out of unit. Model number located on a sticker inside of unit. One problem that I ran into was getting the front grill off. -pull the bucket out of unit -two screws will become visible in middle left and right corners. Remove these -once the screws are removed youll need to press in on both sides of the unit. Press in on the metal part of the unit with the base of your hands, close to the edge of where the sides of the plastic grill meet the metal part. There are tabs in that vicinity that'll release the grill. - pull up on the grill gently to release those tabs. Youll see the existing sensor - to get at the sensor you'll need to take the metal cover off as well as the plastic piece in the back. Youll need to unscrew roughly fifteen screws. All of them are easy to spot -once cover is off just trace the sensor wire. Remove sensor from the grill, unplug the cable from the board, unplug the double connector, remove metal covered piece from copper crimp A Couple of notes: You'll notice a a part of the sensor that is inside of a copper crimp.. I used a screw driver to open it up to remove the sensor/pair of pliers to close it The double plug connector was tough to remove. I used a pair of needle nosed pliers to disconnect. Zip ties can be cut
