Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Loud, hardly removed any water, and... I had a defective humidity gauge on another brand, and thought I'd give this a try in my finished/insulated/damp basement (61f, 65% humidity)?- -It was Loud, and I could hear it all over the upstairs. - It ran 24/7 at 50% setting, and Only removed 1qt in 3 days (after 1hr startup wait, and 24hr Continuous). -Bucket was in the back (hard to grip/remove), and No view port (so I never knew how full, unless powered off/removed). I went back to my old brand, and working good- it removes a bucket a day, is fairly quiet, and a front view port. May 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quiet unit I use this in a three car insulated garage in hot and humid Texas. It allows me to only use the air conditioning when comfort is needed, but keeps the humidity under control for tools and equipment. What a difference it has made. The pump works great allowing me to empty into a laundry style drain. Just make sure bucket is properly seated or pump will not work and you'll be scratching your head for a while until you figure it out. I'm very pleased with this product, something I don't say often anymore. October 16, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job very well We use the dehumidifier in an unfinished basement. The decline in humidity since we turned it on is very noticeable. We emptied several buckets a day for a few days. We now use the pump so that we do not have to empty the bucket. I highly recommend a dehumidifier with a pump so that you can drain the water from the bucket. This one comes with a hose that is very easy to install. We have it drain into a sink that is several feet above the dehumidifier. (You need to purchase a garden hose if you want to use gravity rather than the pump to drain.) Unlike our previous dehumidifier by another company, which we could hear on the first floor, we cannot hear this one. It is relatively quiet. We are very happy with this purchase. Shipping was quick, and it is very easy to set up (it is not sold in stores). July 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good. Prior reviews warn correctly that this dehumidifier is noisy. This does not bother me since it is in a basement. I was mainly interested in the pump feature to get the water to a sop sink since I have no flooor drain. Bottomline, both the dehumidifier and the associated pump seem to work very well. Note that Consumer Reports did a review on dehumidifiers in the current issue which I received just after ordering this product. I was surprised that no Winix Models were covered in that report.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Immediate results Had very musty smelling basement when purchased a new home and the Central A/C was spreading smell throughout the house. Bought the dehumidifier online and it arrived 3 days later. I set it up and it ran continuously for 6 days before shutting off. The built in pump allowed me to "set it and forget it" knowing that it was draining to the subpump located in a seperate room. The smell has been eliminated and the unit now only turns on every couple hours to maintain the desired humidity. September 4, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The product is easy to install and reliable. This dehumidifier has been working well in our basement for several months now. Therefore, at this point there is no overwhelming evidence that this is a great machine, but so far I have had absolutely no problems with it. Relatively quiet, the pump is a great convenience, maintains the set humidity levels, etc. The only thing is that it does not restart after power outage, but I don't remember whether this model had this feature or not (you see how much I care).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Get's the wet out of the air Put the Winix DHD501 to work in our damp basement on the 50% humidity setting and it ran 4 days on high to get the humidity down. Once it got the humidity down it runs once in a while. It is a little on the loud side, but it really is a hard worker, will have to see how it holds up over the years. The bucket is a little awkward to remove, but I got it for the pumping feature, so it is a non issue to me. So far I like it. April 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by appears to be excellent quality I am more than pleased. I have it hooked up to drain directly into the utility tub in the basement so I never have to empty anything. I would have liked to use the water in the washer or to water plants but the hose can't sit in water or it will back-fill. So there goes my conservation thoughts. At any rate, so far so good. Well made and it just looks like a sturdy, dependable machine. My musty basement smells CLEAN. March 27, 2012
