My Danby dehumidfier model DDR2510E showed the code E2 after I emptied it and now won't work and no where in my manual does it say what to do or what it means.

Hi There,
The E2 error you are receiving is likely the float switch sensor when turns the system off when the bucket is full. Please contact our customer service department to be connected with a service depot in your area.

My LG dehumidifier has an error display CH01 and says it has a full bucket when I never use the bucket. I purchased the sensor part from Appliance Factory parts and find it is not quite as easy to install...


If this is the same as the original part then you can follow the wiring through the casing, sometimes you can tie a piece of thin cord to the cables as you pull them through and then use this to pull the new cables back.

Do you have the bucket, as lots of these sensors need to be plugged into the bucket to operate properly. Even if you are using the drain hose.

Another thing worth noting is that often when the sensor reads a fault it can be just dirt or slime on the sensor, a good clean with an old toothbrush and warm soapy water can often acheive excellent results.

Hope this helps

Our LG LHD45EL dehumidifier stopped working. The bucket full light flashes, though the bucket is empty and the filters clean. The display shows CH01. The manual does not say what CH01 means. Any...

I don't know what CHO1 is either! My husband and I had the same problem a couple years ago. We just ended up buying a new one.

Shows ch01

The error is an indication of an Indoor Air Sensor malfunction according to the manual.

E1 code for the primary humidity sensor behind right side grill. Unit MUST be unplugged from outlet. Take right side grill out, unplug sensor from wire socket and plug back. If no help, you need new sensor.

Error ch01 is shown?

I decided to phoned LG customer service directly. They informed me that my dehumidifier comes with a 5 year warranty. They gave me a ph# to call of a dealer located in my area that will fix my problem at no charge. They were very helpful.

I have a LG model LHD65EBL that first started icing up along the top edge during humid days. After several months of this, it finally stopped working and displayed CH01 with the bucket full indicator flashing.

I took apart the dehumidifier, removed the temperature sensor from the coil and rubbed it between my fingers. I then plugged in the unit and it started right up, confirming either a sensor or other circuit problem related to that sensor. For my model unit, I ordered sensor assembly #6877A30013L from for $21.75 + shipping.

When I received the assembly, I measured the new and old sensor with an ohm meter: new sensor = 5.5KOhms, old, defective sensor = 5.34KOhms. I installed the new sensor assembly and the unit is working fine.

Just because the bucket full indicator is flashing along with an error code does not mean there is a problem with the bucket full switch.
