The Kenmore Dehumidifier is worth every penny. It is the most reliable one on the market. We have had ours for over 5 years and never had a problem with it . We also bought another one with a warranty and after 2 years it was not working up to par so we brought in to have it checked out. The guy at the service department said they could not fix it but we were entitled to a new one which we went to pick up that day . It has not given us a bit of trouble. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs a dehumidifier. It works and further more it quieter then all the rest and believe me that is very important.The two ways to empty the water are great asset as well . Either hook it up to a hose and drain it outside or into a sump pump or just empty out the container when full.

This review is for the **Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier, **but it can be applied to many other (maybe all) dehumidifiers, as we've certainly tried our share. In a sentence, while removing humidity they ***throw hot air throughout the room. ***

Many of us that need humidity removed from our homes, also would like the heat, even though it would be dryer heat, to also disappear - therefore a dehumidifier will not only make your air conditioner run longer, on a higher setting, it's a case of one appliance running against another.

Also, though this along with others have auto-shutoffs on them, when the water reservoir is full, keep an eye on them *just in case, *well, because you just never know. Once the reservoir is full, if you let it just sit there full of water that's been pulled from the air, (for example if you're not home and the dehumidifier is left running), and it stops, you'll not only have hot air from when it was running, you'll possibly have a moldy watery mess that's very full inside your dehumidifier - and don't forget those filters - inexpensive they are not!

We've found an additional (and cheap) fan works far better as it evaporates the humidity, and works side-by-side with the air conditioner, rather than throwing hot air into the room.

Rest assured, your electric bill will go up.

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

        Its really good and it does what its supposed to do, make you breathe easier. For people with asthma, it could really improve their breathing drastically. This dehumidifier was recommended to me by my nieghbor, and believe it or not, its amazing and works within half an hour, you can really feel the difference. I saw this baby in target about 6 months ago and i had to buy it before it was sold out. Other than it being easy to use, it has a few bugs. I bought it 6 months ago and it doesnt work well anymore, so i dont know if its defective or something, and its pretty loud and bothers you at night even thought it did do the job, but it had to for the money i paid for it. I do think its good, but i would prefer one that lasts longer, but i still would fix the one i still have.

        Kenmore dehumidifier - trustworthy

        By 

        from Garrettsville, OH

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

        We purchased this product last year due to some breathing problem with my kids. The size perfectly fits our room and there was a noticeable change in the quality of the air. My kids would produce very little sound while sleeping when it is on. This made us feel that the dehumidifier is doing its job. It also perfecly does its job in the basement in the rainy season clearing off the damp smell of the wood making it much better to smell. But I think for that a bigger size would have done its job much better.

        It paid off for its price by giving a good night sleep to my kids and also a peaceful sleep for us without having to bother about the kids. It has been lasting well till now and hopefully would last for couple more years.

        54701 dehumidifier loud and no longer working after 2-3 years

        By 

        from Barre, VT

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

        I hve had  a similar experience with the Kenmore 54701 dehumidifier after about 3 years of use (only use in the summer). It got very loud and is no longer working at all. For an expensive dehumidifier it is very diappointing,. I would not recommend Kenmore dehumidifiers to anyone after this experience.

        Super efficient and quiet.

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

        This Kenmore dehumidifier works so much better than the other brand we had.  It is quiet, really takes the moisture out of the air fact, and is energy-start rated--a big plus since we run it almost constantly in the basement.

        Kenmore Dehumidifier- Do I need it for the money?

        By 

        from Warrior, AL

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

        The Kenmore Dehumidifier is a little high, but when you have a need for it you really should look at the Kenmore brand name. The company has been around for awhile so you know someone is trusting there product and so should you. When you have moister in the air it will ruin wood all through your home. Do you have a lot of people in your home that take really hot showers and steam up the walls. After awhile your paint and wood will take in all that moister and you will wish you took the money and the time to invest in a dehumidifier. Now when you do be sure to check out Kenmore.

        The Kenmore Dehumidifier - 54701 works great to remove moisture

        By 

        from Hughes Springs, TX

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

             I live in a home that is very tight.  It holds moisture during th winter and summer. I bought the Kenmore Dehumidifier 54701 three years ago.  It removes moisture and warms the room. It makes a little noise, but it sure is worth it.  There is one thing that my wife does not like about it.  It takes the moisture from her house plants and she has to water them more often.  I think that it was a good buy and I would recommed it to anyone.

        Helps you breath at night

        By 

        from Liverpool, PA

        Comments about Kenmore Pint Dehumidifier:

        Helps you breath better at night.  People with breathing problems such as asthma it helps you sleep better at night.  I am a person with asthma and there are plenty of nights that its hard for me to breath but with a dehumidifer its puts air into the room and takes oiut what should not be there They are nice for kids because they can't burn themselves or anythign like that.  The more expensive they are the better they probably work Depending on your room size you may need a bigger one also which would be more expensive then a smaller one
