    Default Dehumidifier Says the Bucket Is Full But It Isn't

    Model Number: LHD459EL
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    My luck with dehumidifiers is telling me they don't make them like they used to.

    I have a 2 year old LG purchased at Home Depot that has been well maintained. This week the unit started flashing the code "01" and also had the bucket full light on. Unfortunately the unit is connected to a hose and drains into the sink. I verified that the float still is okay and that the hose is seated properly which makes me think that something on the board is failing. Anyone have any experience with this?

    Thanks!

    I don't know if you'll have any luck finding someone that has worked on one. Most of the service techs I know are less than thrilled about working on LG's major appliances. I'm not sure something like a dehumidifier would have to be sent in to have warranty work done on it. I know your's is out of warranty however if it does have to be sent in to LG then you're not going to have a lot of service companies that work on them.

    When I was reading your post, You mentioned that you verified the float is OK. That float activates a switch. Did you check that switch?

    From "Lousy Garbage" web site concerning 01

    Regrettable, your unit may require a service call. Please contact LG Customer service at 1-800-243-0000 for more detailed trouble shooting

    BTW that model has been discontinued. Nice real nice.
