Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ctsb So far, so good...
I got 2 of these - 1 for the unfinished side of the basement, which gets quite humid, and 1 for the finished side (less humid, but it's where the washing machine is). So far, pleased with how they work. No matter what machine I have in the unfinished side, it works hard, and I have at least a bucket a day, sometimes morning and evening depending on how much rain we've had. I hope these work for more than the year or two many reviewers have stated. That is a sad trend in many home appliances. Price was good, and did the order online, pick up in store thing. That went smoothly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HughMed Not working after 1 year.
1st year it worked fine. Used both the bucket and the drain hose, no problems. Second humid season and the machine runs, but will not collect any water. I tried different locations, with and without the drain hose but it simply will not collect any water. I contacted GE and they told me to try the trouble shooting tips in the manual, nothing helped. My purchase was just over a year old so the warranty was no longer valid. Trying a different brand for my replacement unit. For the cost it should last longer than 1 season.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DIYGuy Declining Performance
This unit was purchased for a finished basement, replacing one which had been recalled. It worked to maintain humidity at an acceptable level in the summer, but ran more often than I expected. Performance gradually declined, and it maintained only 50-55% humidity in our space even when running continuously. After a little over two years, it began icing over - apparently the automatic defrost feature stopped working. Although it was set up to drain through a garden hose, water began to collect in the bucket as it condensed on cold surfaces within the unit. This was the first clue that it was icing over - initially, the ice buildup was not apparent from an outside inspection. I replaced this dehumidifier with a competitor's product which accomplished far better dehumidification within a matter of hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AlmostRetired Do Not Buy this Unit. Fan never shuts off
I can't believe this product is Energy Star rated, because the fan NEVER shuts off.
Others report the same problem. Seems like a design flaw. Wastes Energy...
Very disappointed in this GE product.
Needed a replacement unit quick. This was the ONLY model my Home Depot sold, so I had no choice.
Try Lowes instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jay excellent product
this is our 3rd purchase of this dehumidifier. they have all performed flawlessly. they easily suck 5 to 6 gallons of water out of the air in our lake house every day......yes, that's 6 gallons of water that each one takes our of our house. we have used the water on plants on our patio for the last 4 years. so the reservoirs are very sturdy, as I have carried them all around the house multiple times. we actually use only 2, but my son has 'borrowed' the oldest one for his office.
the only negative I can offer is that they do seem to really suck a lot of electricity, but they function really well. should another of them disappear, we will readily purchase this model again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappymom Works great until it needs resetting--then you have to pitch it
We've been really happy with this product, but when we plugged it in for a second summer of dehumidifying, it didn't collect water, but sounded and seemed like it was running fine. I called GE and they said there's no "reset" button on the unit, so the only thing you can do when something gets goofed up in the electronics is to throw it away. Crazy. The GE person did tell me that she had put in requests for a reset button because of other customers' experiences with this. I hope they do--hope they're not just trying to get you to buy a new unit every couple years. I was expecting this to run capably every summer for several years. When I buy a new one, it won't be a GE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by secretary01 Great purchase
The dehumidifier was a great purchase. The dehumidifier pulls so much moisture out of our basement. No more musty smell when we go down there. So happy we bought this.

This product does a great job on reducing the humidity. I'm very glad that I purchased this brand. The dehumidifier runs quietly. Glad I purchased it.
