Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

My LG Dehumidifier model LHD45EL stopped working. It will not dry the air. I tried turning it off and turning it back on, or even unplugging it to reset it, but it will not restart. The readout where it gives the room's humidity level and level the unit is set for reads CH 01 and the Bucket Full light is blinking even though the bucket has been emptied.

Have a year old lg dehumidifier and a code of 01 appears in the window and will not start.


The error Code 01 indicates that either the air intake filter is dirty and needs to be removed and cleaned and/or the water collection bucket is not installed properly. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before attempting any service work.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

FROST COLLECTS ON TOP


Hi, rewolff. The problem you're experiencing, with your dehumidifier is usually caused by basic things. That can be fairly easy to solved:

1. Air intake filter is either dirty or clogged: Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it before removing the filter.
Be sure the filter is completely dry, before reinstalling it.

2. Refrigerant cooling coils are dirty aand need to be cleaned. This will require removing the face of
the unit, to access the coils. They should be cleaned with warm water and dish washing liquid.
Then rinsed and thoroughly dried. After they are dry apply a light coat of WD40 to the coils.

3. Air obstruction. The unit requires a minimum of 12" clear air space on all four sides of the unit.

4. If the unit is being operated in a basement, the air temperature at floor level is colder then the air
temperature at floor level. Unless, your unit is a "Low Temp" model, getting the unit up off the
floor, on to a sturdy table, cabinet top, etc, that is sturdy enough to handle the weight of the unit,
plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve the problem.

Your model has been discontinued by LG, but they still support it. So, if none of the above solves the problem, contact LG Customer Service for more detailed trouble shooting at 1-800-243-0000.

I do hope this helped you to do your own troubleshooting and hopefully solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do I get to the air filter in order to clean it ??


To remove the filter. remove the water bucket. Then looh at the top of the water bucket cavity. You will see a small plastic pull type handle. This is the plastic frame for the air intake filter. Pull it down to remove frame and the filter. After washing an rinsing the filter, be sire it's completely dry, before installing it. Be sure you have turned the unit OFF and unplugged it before removing the filter.

I've had the lg LHD45EL Dehumidifier for about 1.5 years now. I have used it every spring/summer. I turned it on this year and it runs but the water does not collect. Obviously something is wrong any idea...


I found the same thing. I've had my LHD45EL for 2 or 3 years. Worked great for my basement. This year I hear it run, but it doesn't collect water. I cleaned the filter and of course nothing. I took the back cover off, and tried running it. The condenser runs, but the copper tube leading up to the coil doesn't get cold. My guess is that the freon (or whatever refrigerant they are using) has leaked out. There doesn't appear to be any way to recharge it, the original tube has been crimped and soldered. Looks like junking it and buying a new one is the only option unless someone is good with a torch and solder. My question is whether to go LG or not.

Have an LG dehimidifier which seems to have stop working


Could be a failed compressor start relay. They are replaceable. Get one at an appliance parts store for your model or a generic one. Make sure you are unplugged before changing.

It is defective. The coils are not getting cold enough to condense water in the air. If you have the receipt and the unit is less than 5 years old, give LG a call for warranty repair.
