Answer: 
This is a washable air filter. Just remove it and either wash off the lint build-up, or take the filter outside and give it a few hard shakes and that is really all it needs. I've never washed mine, no need to.

Answer: 
When you remove the bucket, you will see the filter edge peeking out at the top front of the opening (where the bucket was). Pull the edge/tab, and it will slide out. I rinse mine with water and let it dry. The manual says you can use a mild soap if needed. Make sure it is dry before sliding it bak in place.

You should clean the filter about every 15 days of run time, and hit the Filter button to reset the built-in timer on the Filter reminder. GE wants you to clean the filter ever 10days of run time.
The Filter can be removed by first removing the bucket, then reaching up just underneath the front vent opening of the Dehumidifier and pulling down the filter. The Filter slides down and out. Best way to clean the filter is to use your vacuum brush attachment to gently suck the collected dust off of the filter. Just like a tennis racket, make sure your strings stay straight.
Slide the filter back up into the dehumidifier's front grill area, replace bucket in position and resume use. Read Less

Answer: 
MartinR provided an essential piece of information (1245 BTU per hour), but I believe there is a little more to it. If the unit was removing 1 pint of water per hour, it would remove the latent heat of 1 pint (that is, approx. 1 lb) of gas-phase water from the room. The latent heat of 1 lb of gas-phase water is 970 BTU, compared to liquid water. So the unit would be adding only the difference between Read More
MartinR provided an essential piece of information (1245 BTU per hour), but I believe there is a little more to it. If the unit was removing 1 pint of water per hour, it would remove the latent heat of 1 pint (that is, approx. 1 lb) of gas-phase water from the room. The latent heat of 1 lb of gas-phase water is 970 BTU, compared to liquid water. So the unit would be adding only the difference between 1245 BTU per hour that it is consuming (from electricity) and 970 BTU per hour it is removing (in the form of water).
If you are having trouble visualizing the concept of latent heat, 970 BTU is what you would need to add to a pint of already-hot liquid water (on a stove) in order to boil it all away into the air. It represents the extra energy held by a pint (or lb) of water in the gas phase compared to the liquid phase. Read Less

That's a very good question. It seems to vary. When the room is cool, i.e. 68 degrees, I don't feel any heat coming out of it at all. Just room temperature air. I noticed if I left the AC off and it got up to about 75 degrees, then the unit would indeed blow some warm air out of it. But overall I think the heat coming out of it is a very small amount.

Hello Jwd - this is Nancy at GE Appliances. I'm sorry to hear that the red light is not going out on your dehumidifier after attaching the drain hose. Please check that the garden hose where it attaches to the unit is not loose or have a bad connection as this can cause leaking into the bucket and through the hose at the same time. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

Answer: 
Red light should be on when draining with a hose or when bucket is removed.. If light is on when bucket is installed check to make sure it is pushed in properly--once it is installed correctly the light should go out and machine will run. Otherwise you have a defective unit.

sometimes the bucket is not properly seated. there is a sensor/right in the back on the right that it rests on. if you take the bucket out and press on the sensor see if the light goes out. if it goes off then push the bucket back in until it clicks into place and the light will turn off since the bucket is activating the sensor. if it doesn't then contact ge service.

Now this question I can't answer regarding the hose, as I don't use one. My dehumidifier is strictly for my basement usage where there is no drain in that area for a hose; wish there was one. It sure would make it easier for me in not having to empty the water bucket every day. I would highly advise reading the manufacturer's manual for troubleshooting regarding this issue.

My problem arose because the way this unit collects condensed water is to use a shallow "tray" which is located above where the bucket is (would be). So if the unit is placed in a sloped floor and the tilt is toward the right side of the unit, the water on the tray flows away from its drain and leaks into the bucket rather than into the hose which is connected to the drain. This will fill up the bucket, red light comes on, and it will stop. Does this sound like what you have? Read Less

Yes, the fan noise was just a little too loud for my bedroom. It's not a buzzing or mechanical sound, just the sound of air rushing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works perfectly! The humidifier is working great. Water is filing up. Wish the cord was longer but I find many dehumidifiers don't have long cords anyways. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed!! I have two of these models in my basement. One has run for several years and works just fine. It takes the water out of the air at the rate advertised. My second unit does not work at all. It just runs and blows out hot air. I took the second unit back and got a new model of the same type. It worked just fine for two or three days and started to do the same thing as the unit I swapped out. I have taken the old unit and placed it exactly where the non performing unit used to be and it performed just great. I took the new unit and put it where the performing unit used to be and it did not draw out any humidity in that location. Summary: One good, two bad. If they work you are OK however based on the number of reviews of this type on this page, I would say GE has a quality control issue with these units. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FRESH AIR! I LIVE IN A MOBILE HOME IN FLORIDA, HUMIDITY IS A REAL ISSUE HERE EVEN WITH THE A/C RUNNING ALMOST YEAR ROUND. I HAD VISITED ANOTHER MOBILE HOME WHERE THE OWNERS (SNOWBIRDS) HAD LEFT FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS AND NOTICED THEY HAD PLACED THIS SAME UNIT IN THEIR KITCHEN SINK, LETTING THE WATER DRAIN VIA A HOSE. I WAS STUNNED AT HOW FRESH THEIR HOUSE SMELLED AND THOUGHT THAT WAS AN EXCELLENT IDEA FOR REDUCING THE EXTRA DAMPNESS. I JUST PURCHASED MINE AND AM SO HAPPY I DID. IT HAS MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE ON MY A/C WORKING SO HARD, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANY MOBILE HOME OWNER AND ESPECIALLY FOR SNOWBIRDS WHO DEPEND ON HUMIDISTATES, THAT OFTEN FAIL. July 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good I've had the dehumidifier for about a month, and so far it has kept my 1300 square foot basement dry. But, if you don't have a means to drain the dehumidifier automatically (with a hose), you'll be emptying the bucket 3-4 times a day. Thankfully I have a drain to run a hose to. Bottom line, it's worked well so far. August 9, 2016
