Question about LG DH504E GoldStar Dehumidifier

2 Answers

Dehumidifier Error? My dehumidifier starts up then stops. The humidity setting display goes to 01 and the bucket full indicator flashes. I have checked the bucket and repositioned it. The dehumidifier drains to the floor so the bucket is empty. I don't know what else to do.

Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).

Replaced the main controller board to fix it.

For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.

I had the very same problem with my Zenith ZD300 dehumidifier. After getting no help from the manufacturer and realizing that it was going to cost $45 just to figure out what was wrong with it, I dismantled the dehumidifier myself in search of a solution. I suspected it was the humidity sensor, so I ordered the part off Repair Clinic website ( It cost $18.20 plus shipping. AND IT WORKED!! I was so relieved that I wouldn't have to buy a new dehumidifier. It's been running for a day now, so we will see. Here's the website link:

Good luck!!

SOURCE: Dehumidifier Error?

Your bucket full switch may be defective. If you are capable, bypass it since you are draining to another place other than the bucket.

Unit will not run.

Error code 01 - unit has a sealed system leak; most warranties are 5 years.

Dehumidifier Error?

This error code indicates that the problem is most likely a shorted defrost thermistor or possibly a pinched wire going to the thermistor. You will need to replace the sensor assembly - part # 6877A30013L. The Sears website has it listed for 9.99 + shipping. The humidity sensor & defrost thermistor come together in a wiring harness that plugs onto the main circuit board. It is fairly simple to repair. Just remove the front & rear grill & the metal cabinet. Remove the thermistor from the copper tube on the cooling lines; remove the humidity sensor from the front of the evaporator; pull the wire plug off the bucket switch; & remove the small 7 pin plug from the main circuit board inside the metal control box. Reverse procedure to install new sensor assembly.

Kenmore 54701 (70 pint) dehumidifier stopped running

the lowest setting for % of humidity is 35% on that unit... sounds like with all the other errors that the IC board is bad (the Control circuit board behind the displays)
