The Hisense 70-pint 2-speed dehumidifier has a built-in pump that pumps the water upward to continuously drain out a basement window or into a sink using a standard garden hose (hose not included). This model removes 70 pints of damaging moisture per day from spaces up to 1500 square feet operating at temperatures as low as 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Three operating modes (manual set, continuous and auto dry) plus the built-in pump function make this unit a versatile choice. Additional features include a programmable 24-hour on/off timer, adjustable humidistat, and full-tank alert/shutoff.

My original review is below, this is an update after about a year of use.
I bought two of these units at the same time, and both of them had their pumps quit within 30 days of each other, one was within Hisense's warranty period, the other was a few days past. Hisense warrantied the first unit that went, and much to my surprise customer service offered me a REFUND instead of a replacement, I was surprised but happy as this meant I could simply buy another unit without having to wait for the turn around time from Hisense. They instructed me to cut my power cord off the unit and mail it to them along with my invoice and other information.
I waited about a month and did not receive a cheque, so I called into customer service and they informed me that I would be receiving a replacement unit and not a cheque as they had originally offered. After some arguing with them, they finally admitted that management had simply changed their minds on the matter, and there was nothing I could do. So eventually I received a replacement unit, as Hisense said I would, and its currently sitting in a box right next to the brand new dehumidifier I had purchased to replace the first one. Hisense would not cover the second unit that died days after the warranty period. These will be the first and last Hisense products I will ever buy.
This thing hauls the water out of the air like no dehumidifier I have ever used.
We are having major humidity issues in our area this summer, so much so that for the first time ever I am requiring a dehumidifier for my basement after living in this house for over 6 years.
I actually ordered two of these, one for my parents who were also having humidity issues, while mine worked perfectly, the unit my parents received was making a bad sound and my dad had to take it apart and adjust the fan inside so it wouldn't contact something it was rubbing against inside. It looked like a fastener wasn't tightened all the way from the factory.
It took about 3 days of constant running to get the humidity in my basement under control, it was about 76% when we started and then stabilized around 48%. The difference in comfort in our basement is incredible, and while there wasn't a bad smell in the air really, it has made the air a lot fresher overall.
My only two negatives is I find these units to be loud, but no more loud than any other dehumidifier I've ever used. Its easy enough for me to stick this in the laundry room and let it do its thing, but if I had to be in the same room with it running constantly, I think it would become a problem. Don't let that stop you from buying it however, its the nature of the beast with dehumidifiers in general. Secondly the tape used to hold the unit together during shipping does not come off easily, and by that I mean it probably took me about 20 minutes of peeling away at it, until I gave up.
Aside from working really well, these things also look great, a lot of the dehumidifiers from other brands I looked at looked really old fashioned, this looks sleek and modern.
I took away one star for the one malfunctioning unit we repaired ourselves (easily), and for the shipping tape that would not come off without great effort. Otherwise these would have easily gotten 5 stars.
- very effective at removing moisture: it drops the humidity in the room quickly and efficiently
- relatively quiet: dehumidifiers are by nature noisy, but this one is one of the quieter ones I've owned. That said, I wouldn't want to sleep with it running in my bedroom.
- built-in drain pump: this was the main feature that attracted me to this product, and it works very well. I've connected its discharge hose through the wall and into the drain below a sink in the next room using a dishwasher connection. No tank to empty! A big plus for me.
- nice cabinet: it's actually pretty good-looking; not an eyesore in my bedroom.
Cons: just one, but it's a doozy! Its humidity control is way too sensitive. It shuts itself off, but then within seconds, tries to start up again. Compressors really don't like to do that, and so it strains for several seconds and shuts off, only to try and restart again. It eventually does, and then runs for several minutes, only to repeat this dance. Left running in this "automatic" mode for several days, it produces so much heat that my basement room, normally in the low 60's when the heat is off, warms up to about 78 degrees. (Can you imagine how much electricity it's using to do that?!) Not only is this a huge waste of electricity, but I'm sure all that straining to restart is doing bad things to the compressor's life expectancy.
My solution: I installed a wall-mounted humidistat made by Johnson Controls on the wall that turns the outlet the dehumidifier is plugged into on and off, and leave the dehumidifier set to "continuous" so it's turned on and off by the external humidistat. With that, the humidity in my basement is being maintained beautifully, and the room temperature is back to where it should be ... and so is my electric bill. The external humidistat turns the dehumidifier off when the humidity drops to 45%, and back on again at about 48%. The dehumidifier drops the humidity back down to 45% within just a few minutes and it shuts off again. With that external control, I have a very efficient dehumidifier and am very happy with the result. The mold problem is completely solved.
Bottom line: I can recommend this dehumidifier highly, but only if you're willing to do as I did and install a separate humidity control to its AC line.
While I'm here answering DDawg's question below, here's a brief update. A month after writing the above review, I'm still very, very pleased with how this is working for me. Confessions of a nerd: I have a smart-homes system logging the humidity history in the room, so what I'm about to say is based on a month of actual data. This is in a 1000 sq. ft. basement:
The wall-mounted humidistat turns the dehumidifier on for only about five minutes every half hour or so, when the humidity reaches about 49%. In those few minutes, the dehumidifier drops the humidity to 45% and it shuts off. This pattern of running for five minutes every half hour or so is very consistent and stable. I couldn't be more pleased.
Update, and removing another star: after 17 months of operation, the switch that turns the drain pump on and off failed. It's probably a $2 part, but you can't buy one anywhere. I called customer support, and
- if it's under warranty, they want me to cut the power cord off and mail it to them, and they'll ship me a replacement. WHAT?! When asked if they could just send me the part, they said no - this is the only remedy they can offer.
- if it's no longer under warranty, tough luck
Bottom line - it's made in China; buy American appliances, where replacement parts are available.
