I researched dehumidifiers exhaustively online and in my local [...], [...], ect. After looking at the reviews/price for all 65-70Pint models I could not Beat the **5 Year** Carry in Service Warranty that LG offers on Labor, Parts & Compressor. I Called my LG 800 number and confirmed the location of the local LG Carry in Service Shop 7 Miles from me BEFORE I Bought this LHD659EBL at Abt.com (LHD659EBK is their Model #) [...] NO SALES TAX!!! DO NOT use the poorly designed factory plastic drain attachment. Instead use 5/8 OD x 1/2 ID clear plastic drain hose, this is a nice retrofit and holds with no clamps and you can see the water draining to your condensate pump. The first 2 days we could feel and smell the change in the musty/moldy basement and now no more headaches or sinus issues in our basement gym. After the second week I put the fan on low setting but it would not change from high. I unplugged and waited 2 minutes and after plugging the unit back in it now can be set for both high and low fan speed. I must say this is the first LG I have bought and the 5 year warranty sold me on it!! Usually I try to only buy American products but until GE, Kenmore, Frigidaire or Panasonic back their products with solid 5 year warranties they won't get me back again. [...]

Comments about LG 65 Pint Black Dehumidifier:
I have been using this LG 65 Pint Black Dehumidifier since 7/09. It works very well in keeping my damp, musty basement dry. I have a drain hose connected to it which empty's into the basement sink. It runs continuously, from spring through fall and has functioned perfectly. I would highly recommend this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

not up to the high quality normal to LG
from Drexel Hill, PA
extremely noisy this unit replaced a similar 45 pint unit mfg by LG. The 45 pint unit made much less noise and vibration.
Works like a charm!

About Me Renter
It's only been 3 weeks, but we're happy with this dehumidifier so far. Looks great. Controls are great. So effective, the water pan fills almost every day. We're Coastal Californians, and this product is absolutely necessary for preventing mold growth on the walls throughout the apartment. Sure, it hums, but it's more of a white noise in the background... we run it at night in the hallway or the living room, and we sleep just fine. Also it isn't a problem at all if we let it run during the day while away at work. Auto-shut off feature is perfect for ensuring it never overflows. A couple of recommendations for improvement: put a handle on top, so that you can tilt it back to wheel it around. (The wheels on bottom are great, but you do have to get down low to push it on the carpeting.) Also, the water pan is awkward to empty. You almost have to do it in the bathtub, as the water doesn't pour out very neatly. It usually ends up all over the countertop and the floor if I attempt to empty it in the kitchen/bathroom sink.

would buy this dehumidifier again
By Dave the vet
from south Georgia
we used this unit in a garage that had to be repainted due to mildew. It is the second dehumidifier to service this area and has been very effective in controlling the moisture and mildew.It does make a little more noise than our [...]unitbut due to the area we are using it, there has been no problem. The 5 yr warranty is certainly a bonus.
Louder Than Expected
from Rochester, NY
The LG Black Dehumidifier works well in my basement. However,when the unitstarts, it is extremely loud and remainsquite loud during operation.
So far so good
from Mooresville, NC
We have a very large and tall crawl-space and the wood floors above it were cupping. We added more moisture barrier and installed the dehumidifier. That was 3 weeks ago and at the time the humidity in the space was 65%. We haven't had it measured since but lots of water has come out the drain and the room seems much less musty. I selected this one primarily because it seemed a good value and for the warranty.
in pictures looks good...
By 1000 times sorry.
from new jersey
I bought this thing believing in reviews, in other words I lost almost $280.00 in this piece of junk. Buy this at your own risk and don't forget the earplugs too.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It does the job, but it's not quiet.
By Rob Family
from Dale City, VA
I used the product in my basement, where the family room,laundry and storeage area.The moister was making the area smell like mildew. Now,after using the dehumidifier the ordor is gone and the area feels dry. It's a good product, but they need to work on making it quiet.
