Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Functional Dehumidifier Nice, functional, feature-filled unit. Looks a bit industrial but if you care less about how it looks and more about how it works, this might be a good unit for you. The advertisement did not state where the unit was made. After it arrived, I learned it's from China. Great. It has a timer but I can't figure out how to get it to turn itself on and off at certain times to take advantage of lower off-peak power rates. I think the timer just makes it run for a set amount of time and then shut itself off. Still, it's fine and practical -- if a bit pricey. March 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy it The unit is equipped with a pump. Initially placing the unit in service with the pump switch on resulted in the pump not working when the bucket was full and the bucket overflowed . I found out that the pump switch in the on position overrides the bucket high level cutoff ant the compressor will continues to run and the bucket will overflow. The unit was replaced by the company. The new unit is operating and the pump is working, but on the replacement unit the pump switch still overrides the bucket high level cutoff. This is a bad design fault as if the pump fails to start, the bucket will fill up and overflow causing damage to walls and what ever else gets wet. We have some wall damage from the first unit. The bucket high level compressor shut down should function all of the time. Not only when the pump switch is off September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! Easy to use. I really appreciate the pump discarding the water. Quiet and looks great. April 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Built-in pump not working, seems to be a common problem This product works very well and is relatively quiet for a dehumidifier. The electronic controls are a bit puzzling, and the instruction manual could use a re-write as it is needlessly complicated. The disappointment is the pump, the reason that I selected this model. I followed the instruction precisely but it does not engage when the pan is full of water. Very frustrated. I have sent an email to the customer service email address on Friday, it is Tuesday morning (after Memorial Day) and still no response or acknowledgement of the problem. May 26, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pump didn't work It sucked a lot of water out of the air, but I couldn't get the pump to work. I tried many different things to no avail. Returned it and got the similar haier model. Props to HD for a painless return process though. October 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SHort Life (Twice) The first unit died at 30days. The replacement unit died 13months after the initial purchase. April 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by We Shall See Returned the first unit. It worked great for about 3 months then started freezing up. Home Depot replaced it without an issue but the new one is still in the box. I will not need it until spring. Hopefully this one will work the way it is supposed to. December 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Great product. Used for entire full size basement works great. Very surprised at how much water it removes daily. Before using basement had moldy smell and was very humid. After basement is dry and the smell is gone. It also dries my workout clothes and shoes overnight that are soaked. I purchased the 2yr extended warranty with home depot for this product. It is costly but a good investment. September 4, 2013
