Do I need to purchase a separate hose to connect to the drain pump or does a hose come with it?

I AM INTERESTED IN BUYING THE DEHUMIDIFIER UD501K0J5 BUT IT HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE ALERT IN THE REVIEWS. HAS THIS BEEN CORRECTED?

Asked by FTWAYNEMRMAGOO March 16, 2021
1
Answer

The review titled "problem with alert" for the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 is a complaint about the alert that states "There is an alert that makes a loud chiming noise when the bucket is full. This is meant as an alert for those manually emptying the water bucket. For those using the automatic pump, this alert can wake you in the middle of the night, maybe multiple times. Horrible." This is the design for the dehumidifier and is not a problem, but more a complaint about the design of the product if you have the dehumidifier installed in your bedroom. If the dehumidifier is installed in another room, it will not be an issue and the design has not been changed on this model...^IFV

A user in the Reviews section indicated that this unit can be put in Auto mode vs. Manual mode so that the fan is not running continuously. Is this correct, and if so, how do you put the unit in Auto mode vs. Manual mode?

Asked by luna2000 February 27, 2020
1
Answer

Regrettably, the owner's manual for the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 does not have any instructions about switching from Auto Mode to Manual Mode for this unit. It does not have anything about a Manual Mode on this unit...^IFV

Is the pump capable of pumping the water upwards (vertical) approximately 10 feet? It is not clear whether it is a true pump or simply a drain.

Asked by CherD January 16, 2020

Answer

The end of the pump hose when using the built-in pump in the LG PuriCare 50* Pint Dehumidifier with Drain Pump & WiFi, Model # UD501KOJ5 cannot be installed higher than 16 1/4 ft. (5m). Doing so could result in leaks or product damage...^IFV

I use this in my finished basement which gets very humid. I used top have to constantly empty my old dehumidifier twice a day. I like the fact I can hook up the tube (supplied) to the pump and let the dehumidifier drain into the nearby bathroom tub. So now it runs 24/7 so when we are away I don’t come back to a musty basement. There is a chime that plays when the bucket is full and when it starts to pump. I suppose if you sleep in the same space, that could be a problem but for me, it’s fine. I am very happy with it.

Bought Another because it works great
I initially bought one for my 3000 sq foot basement. Even with fan speed set to high, i thought the unit noise was quiet compared to an older unit i had from years back. I started with a 55% humidity and set it for 35 percent. it was filling the bucket about every 8 hours and pumping it out automatically, awesome so I don't have to go downstairs. Anyway, bought a second unit for basement and now on low speed, no trouble at all keeping 35 percent humidity.

LG Electronics 50-Pint Dehumidifier with Bucket, Pump and WiFi_PuriCare
I bought this dehumidifier mostly based on the reviews. I waited a week for it. When I took it out of the box today, I discovered that the side opposite the bucket was separated. Couldn't get it back together. That separation made it lopsided and therefore wouldn't sit flat and vibrated. Also, it emits an enormous amount of heat. I have had other dehumidifiers that don't do that. I don't see any point in drying out my finished basement in the summer by making the air hotter. Needless to say it was not a good purchase and it's going back.

Great features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The best part about this dehumidifier is the built in pump. With the built in pump you dont have to worry about emptying the bucket which is a very convenient feature. It does a nice job keeping the moisture level under control in my basement. Overall a nice unit.
