Having a dehumidifier in your home has never been easier with the DeLonghi 50 Pint Dehumidifier with Pump.
It's your choice how you want to collect the water; you can either activate the patented pump function, which continuously discharges moisture through the 16’ provided hose without having to ever empty a bucket; drain passively out of the unit with the 3' provided hose or manually empty the collection tank when needed. Either way you choose it's easy to monitor the water level with the frontally located transparent water tank. All DeLonghi dehumidifiers are Energy-Star qualified, so you can save on energy bills, plus they contain the eco-friendly refrigerant R410A.
Every unit is extremely user-friendly; you control the ideal humidity level that best suits your needs by simply adjusting the humidistat. You can also monitor the relative humidity and temperature with the easy to use LCD electronic controls. Maintenance is a snap; you just rinse the washable air filter when it becomes dirty.
Additional features include easy roll castors and handles, a 24-hr timer, 2 fan settings, an anti-frost device, low temperature operation down to 41°F, and tank control system with alarm.
Worry-Free Pump Function
The patented pump function allows the unit to continuously discharge moisture without having to empty a bucket. Water can be pumped upward to drain out a basement window or into a sink.
LCD Electronic Controls
Choose the ideal humidity level by adjusting the humidstat. The electronic controls allow you to monitor relative humidty and temperature. You can set the 24-hour timer and go.
Visible Water Level
With its frontally located tank and transparent water level window, you can easily see how much water has been collected.
Castor wheels and handles makes it convenient to move the unit throughout your home.

* High power blower motor really moves the air around in my basement.
* The compressor is quiet when running.
* Digital display for outside unit air temp, compressor coil running temp and set humidity level in percentage.
* Programmable humidity level - 30% to 80% in 5% increments and on continuously regardless of humidity.
* Timer function - 24 hour run time is broken down as follows:
1) 0 to 10 hours -- 30 minute increments
2) 10 to 24 hours -- 1 hour increments
* 3 ways to collect and dispose of the water:
1) by holding tank -- about 1.75 gallon with an internal handle that folds down inside the unit.
2) by larger diameter hose connection out the back - gravity drain.
3) Small electric pump inside the dehumidifier to a 3/8" drain hose (included).
* When the holding tank is full, unit has an automatic shut-off feature so as not to overflow.
* Automatic defrost feature -- starts working when the air temperature is below 59 degrees.
* CFC free - this unit uses R410A, not the older R22 or what the Soleus used - R134A (automotive refrigerant).
* Energy Star rated.
* 6 foot power cord.
* Over one 16 hour run @ 67degrees air temp, I pulled out 12 pints of water.
* Warranty - 1 year parts & labor and 5 year parts only on the compressor and related components.
* Blower has only two speeds - low and high.
* Blower on high is loud and on low is only slightly quieter.
* Blower output is fixed - straight up. You cannot redirect the output in another direction.
* Difficult to see water level on the holding tank w/o using a flash light.
* When the collection bucket is removed, excess water from the condenser continues to come out and onto the floor.
* This unit uses 675 watts/hour when operating on high (the Soleus used 400 watts/hour).
* Extended warranty is for 2 additional years @ $85.00 covering labor. That is just about 1/2 the price of a new one.
Others have complained that this unit runs hot. Having run this unit for 48 hours straight, in 67 degree ambient air temperature, I do not detect this at all. The housing is cool to the touch. The air discharge is cool. If your dehumidifier is running hot, have it repaired under warranty. I don't see it with mine at all.
The display panel shows Relative Humidity (RH) when this dehumidifier is in operation. If you press the temperature button, this unit displays the ambient temperature in Fahrenheit degrees, then Celsius degrees. Left alone after that, the unit defaults back to ambient RH in percent format.
Setting the RH level, like 50%, this unit kicks the compressor in at 54% RH and off at 46% RH.
In all, for my use in my basement, which is 1,300 Sq. Ft., this unit fills the bill. Granted it is premature to say how long this unit will last. I didn't expect the last to give out in just four years of seasonal use. If something happens, I will supplement this review accordingly. Thus far, I recommend this dehumidifier if you can handle the fan noise.
6/12/2011 - Update -- runs fine, except:
One problem has popped up. My dehumidifier and the plugged GFCI outlet do NOT play nice together. Over a matter of a few hours, the GFCI trips and the unit shuts down. When the GFCI is reset, it works fine again for a few more hours. The past two dehumidifier didn't do this, so I wonder if there is a small internal short that is causing this problem.
I highly recommend using the built-in pump provision for emptying the holding tank. Running the hose to a near by drain, it is literately a "set and forget" operation. I check the tank from time-to-time, only a small amount of water remains in the bottom of the holding tank when in operation. My water dripping issue on the floor is gone. A much better option than using the drain pan that has to be emptied twice a day on humid days.
5/11/2012 - Update
Just started my dehumidifier for the 2012 season a few days ago. Started up and works like a champ, even after sitting unused over the winter. The pump started up at the proper time to empty the holding bucket.
Season 2 is off to a good start. This dehumidifier is working just as it should.
3/27/2013 - Update
Started this unit up for the beginning of season #3. As expected, still works just like a champ. Even in the cold basement (64º F avg. temperature) right now, it dehumidifies the area very well.
9/13/2013 - Recall Info if you own
This unit is made by Gree Electric Appliances (Gree) of China. Gree Recalls 12 Brands of Dehumidifiers Due to Serious Fire and Burn Hazards. Here is the link: [...] Check the link out.
I'm please to say this unit is NOT one of the recall products sold.
Mine still runs cool and is operating very well. Since we have a very warm and humid summer, this unit has been running more this year than in the past. The pump really makes it nice since you don't have to empty the collection bucket at all.
I continue to recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a great dehumidifier that is virtually care free.
8/25/2014 - Final Update
Season #4 started early for me this year, started this unit up in early May. As expected - NO problems. Started up, pump worked just fine and kept the basement at the set humidity levels.
Since June 10, 2014, we sold our condo where this dehumidifier was located. Moving into a townhouse, I had no need to take this unit with me.
For four (4) season, this unit worked as described. The buyers have not complained, in fact, they owned the very same unit at their last house. I'm pleased with its performance and highly recommend this dehumidifier to anyone looking for a "set and forget" unit.
We purchased this unit and initially we were pleased with the performance, noise level and ease of use. Without warning however, after three months the unit started leaking at the bottom of the machine. A lot. We had emptied the unit as normal in the morning; went down to the basement a few hours later to find a mini-flood on the floor, our rug ruined, lots of clean-up to do and of course no dehumidifier in the height of summer humidity.
At this point, bring in the back-up plan, Delonghi's customer service. I emailed the relevant department and fairly soon got a standardized reply saying how much of a valued customer I was (which became a seriously bad joke), and how if I would be so kind as to ship the defective unit to their repair center, they would have a go at fixing it before sending it back. Do they realize how heavy a dehumidifier is? I sent a strongly worded reply telling them that I was not prepared to pay for expensive shipping because a) their product is defective and b) the repair center is many hundreds of miles away. Making a nuisance of myself eventually brought about a "gesture of goodwill"; if I provided a few details they would send me a shipping label.
This was three months ago. Four emails later demanding a shipping label, and I've received no further response from DeLonghi and I'm still waiting. They are now ignoring me, and I'm left with an expensive, heavy plastic, side-table.
Bottom line: STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. Spend some time finding a brand that has reliable customer service, because more than likely with a dehumidifier, you're going to need it.
