Comments about Friedrich 50 Pint Dehumidifier with Built-In Pump:
Unit seemed to work when I got it, but I ran it into the sump without checking how much water was being taken out. I turned off for the winter. Next spring when I turned it on, it wasn't removing any humidity. Took it to an approved service center in another state with inconvenient hours which kept it for 5 months 'waiting for parts', then returned it supposedly fixed. Instead of running into my sump I ran it into a bucket and discovered it wasn't pulling any water out, but by then was beyond the year warranty. Now takes up space in my basement.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is a good unit, works well to keep my basement dry and comfortable. I picked this unit because of the built in pump... making it much more versatile rather than having to use a gravity hose. I only had one complaint which is the connection where the pump hose hooks up leaked a bit - a simple fix by just using teflon tape when you hook it up... I would recommend this unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
By Loved it Till it Broke
This works great and collects a lot of water. The fan makes a fair amount of noise which is fine if it's in a basement but might not want to live with it. The problem is that it breaks yearly. Something with the control panel. It keeps saying the bucket is full when it's empty and it cannot be turned off. Unplugging the unit does not reboot it. Already had it repaired/switched once but now just under a year later I am in the same position with the same issue. Such a shame because I love it when it works. Definitely does the job.
Works great! Smart purchase.

Very happy with purchase
Never worked properly
from Bellmore, NY
Has never worked properly. This is my third summer with this unit. After first year's poor performance, took to "authorized service center" last spring. Had unit for two weeks. "Repair" was under warranty. Brought it home, turned it on, runs continuously set at 65% RH. No water, never have to clean filter. Something is running but it is not dehumidifying. Very disappointed with Freidrich for first time ever. In wall A/C units running great after many years-that is why I went with Freidrich for this purchase. Would not recommend.
