Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier
Definitely clean any area where water drains. I wasn't sure what the intake duct was and the manual for my dehumidifier doesn't state where it is..but says to clean it. This might help you clear up where to clean...even if this is not your model...the applicaiton is really the same.

Ayke, this can be caused by several things: The air intake filer is dirty and needs to be removed and cleaned. The humidity level on the unit is set too high and should be lowered to 35%. The air circulation around the unit is obstructed. There should be a minimum of 12" free air space all around the unit. The air temperature in the room is to low for the unit to operate properly. Most dehumidifiers will not work well between 40 and 60 degrees F.
To do an in home test, move the unit to the bathroom, and start it with the humidity level set at 35%. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathrooms exhaust fan On and close in windows in the bathroom. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 to 20 minutes, before returning to the bathroom. Then open the door and turn the shower OFF. Allow the dehumidifier to continue run for 5 minutes, the check the water collection bucket for any signs of water. If you see any water, the bucket is working as it should.
If you don't find any water in the bucket, the humidity sensor may have failed and/or the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas.
Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
