I have gone through 5-6 dehumidifiers in my basement, and they typically last about 3 years +/-. I chose this model based on reviews. I have only had it about three weeks, so I can't speak about its durability, but its design is by far the best I've seen. The hose connection is designed so that the water bucket is completely bypassed, solving two problems: 1) there is no inch or two of standing water (which becomes slimy) in the bottom of the bucket as there is in the typical unit where the hose is attached to a flimsy connection built into the bucket. 2)It also allows for the unit to be moved from the location near the sump pump where it drains, to an area where there is no place to drain (in which case the bucket can be used, since it has not been punctured for the hose connection).The water bucket has a convenient handle on top as well as a cover to prevent water from splashing out when moving. The unit has a convenient handle on top for one-handed moving as well as handles on the side. The wheels make it easier to move also. It is not as loud as I expected based on some reviews - it is actually quieter than the smaller units of other brands that I have had. I also like the retro look the unit has.

Filter Reset Light- bad idea!!!!
According to the Owner's Guide, "the filter reset light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation". Fine. The only problem is that the machine shuts off and will not run...Read complete review
According to the Owner's Guide, "the filter reset light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation". Fine. The only problem is that the machine shuts off and will not run until you push the "Filter" button to reset. I was away for a week-and-a-half and noticed that I wasn't hearing the dehumidifier run. I noticed that the filter reset light was on. I checked the filter- there was hardly any dust on it. Only after pushing the filter reset button would the unit run. I cannot recommend this unit to anyone who might go away for extended periods of time.

Efficient little sucker!
By Alex the Handyman
About Me Homeowner
Comments about Frigidaire 70 Pint Dehumidifier In White:
This nice-looking unit does a great job sucking moisture out of the air. We use it in our finished basement and the laundry room. Takes about 3 to 4 hours to bring the humidity from 75% down to 50%. As with most A/C's (it's basically an A/C), don't expect it to be very energy efficient. However, it performs and performs really well. So, choose your priorities.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worth the money
By Satisfied Owner
from Crawfordsville, IN
Overall, it's a great product. It is a little noisy, but a necessary evil considering the moisture it's removing from the space. I'll take the noise over the moisture damage any day!
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was unbelievably fast!
Great piece of equipment

Strips the condensation from my living room windows in less than an hour. Just running the dehumidifier in the winter makes the temperature feel 10 degrees warmer.

we use it in the basement - easy to set up, use and move

I bought the unit because of a humid basement. The unit has worked without any problems the whole time I have owned it. I have not set up the unit to automatically drain but will eventually try it because draining it becomes a nuisance. The one con about the unit is that it is little noisy.

The Frigidaire Dehumidifier replaced an old Sears (LG) unit that stopped working after about three years. This unit is powerful and effective for my daylight basement of about 1,000 sf. Within a few hours, the basement became noticeably drier and warmer.
Works at capacity every day!

this appliance has helped in the battle against mold in my basement. will buy another very soon, maybe 2. much cheaper than installing an air conditioning system.
Very satisfied with purchase
By Boomer's Mom
from Sarasota, FL
I had an issue with removing the bucket but called Frigidaire and the customer rep. asked me to check the filter to see if it was possibly a little low and blocking the removal of the bucket, sure enough, that is what it was. Problem solved, it does also come on for a few seconds and stop, then does it again and she said that is normal and the units way of checking the moisture in the air. I have owned several dehumidifiers and this is the first one that has done that. I am extremely satisfied with the amount of water it pulls out of the air. I set it at 35% humidity and am happy with the results. The unit is noisy but they all are, for the price and efficiency I think this is a Great buy.
I am really happy with this dehumidifier, the dampness and dank smell in the basement have definitely disappeared since we started using it. However, it's quite loud - it works great for a basement, but I imagine it would be too loud for a living room or or a bedroom.
This is the best dehuidifier I have ever owned. Hope it lasts.
