Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hmoob2015 Reliable product
First, I like this unit because it is easy to operate and it comes with many features. The quality and value is standard. If you are looking for a new product or device, read a review from other buyers first. I purchased it because I trust other people's review. Overall, it is a great product. I mean it is a friendly operated unit and it comes with many features such as auto drain by using the attached horse, manually dump the water from the bucket, time off, auto restart, one/two fans, temperature indicator, humid level set up . The noise level is acceptable and this unit is more than efficient for my basement about 1500sqf.

The Dehumidifier was as described..even better actually. After receiving it on time as promised, I installed it using the supplied clear drain hose to the condensate pump. Within 24 hours my basement humidity went from about 80% to 60%. My basement is approx 3000 sq ft. I reset the humidistat lower and by the next day I had 55%. I'm very happy with the iunit. Thank You

I was looking for a competitive priced dehumidifier and this one fit the bill. All the specs met my requirements and shipping was free. Not covered in the specs though was the direction of exhaust air flow. I had my previous dehumidifier mounted just under the ceiling of the basement versus setting on the floor. This unit has the air discharge aimed upward where I have minimum clearance under the ceiling. The unit is working great and immediately brought down the moisture level. Will monitor the air discharge to see if I need to lower it about six to twelve inches. The gravity drain was easy to connect. Have had it for two months and definitely recommend it at this point.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank IT'S DOING A GREAT JOB!
I thought it was going to be too big for my less than 1,000 sq. ft. basement but it wasn't. I'm glad I went with this size because it still took awhile tho get the relative humidity down to 35%. It definitely does the job! If I had to be critical, the power cord could be longer but I'm using an extension cord with a gauge that it can handle. The pump is working great but I wish the 16' tube was a little bit longer so it can drain into my sink when I roll it farther in the room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DEJolley49 Whynter Dehumidifier was DOA
The dehumidifier was basically DOA when it arrived. I ran it for two or three days and only got a cup or two of water collected even though a smaller GE unit I own was needing to be dumped every few hours. After a few days, the unit would run for an hour or less and then display an EC error code. Whynter service people indicated that EC meant the coimpressor had failed and that I should return it to Home Depot for disposition. I returned it to Home Depot and bought a similar GE model which, to now, has performed as expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DV 70 pint portable dehumidifier w/ pump working well & pumps water right out. Very pleased.
Have area under brick/cement front porch that is very high humidity. Put this in and it is pumping that moisture out. It has to pump up about 5 - 6 feet and that seems to be no problem. By the time I had connected and went to outside area to make sure water pumping outside (10 to 15 minutes), the water was already flowing. Am so in hopes this takes care of the humidity in that area so it can be used for storage. It is basically a finished area that would work well for storing things which hasn't been possible due to the very high humidity.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RobynDE Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't
I purchased this dehumidifier approx 6 weeks ago. I have the pump hose draining up into my basement sink. Setup was very easy. As soon as I turned it on, it worked like a champ. The pump worked great so I didn't have to worry about emptying the bucket, or so I thought. About 2 weeks ago, I didn't hear the unit running so I checked on it. The pump had stopped working and therefore the bucket was full so the unit had shut off. Keep in mind, this unit sits in an undisturbed basement. It is not moved or touched. All of the connections are still nice and tight. After removing the bucket, the pump will then pump out some water into the sink. After replacing the bucket, the pump will work for a few days and then unit will collect water in the bucket again instead of pumping to the sink. The whole point of purchasing this unit was to avoid having to empty a bucket all of the time. I have to admit that it does a good job of removing moisture from my large basement. The fan really should shut off when the desired humidity level is reached, but i knew about that when I purchased it. I will be calling the manufacturer for a replacement.

The item arrived broken in the box and we called the manufacturer and they sent us instructions on how to take the unit apart to repair it. Decided that wasn't our job, so we returned it to Home Depot.
