Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Quiet and useful features

Robert21 7/30/2020

The WiFi connectivity is very useful for remote monitoring of the operational status without making numerous trips to the basement to see if the bucket is full. The dehumidifier is quiet too and sound is minimal even with the compressor running. Very pleased overall with the features and build quality.

Great product, best even, horrible app

MikeSp 7/22/2020

I have two of these and the size of the tank and built in splash guard are the best. The efficiency of the unit is also amazing. I love the ion air filter as well. After making Salmon in microwave normally house stank for hours, but after getting this dehumidifier the smell was gone in minutes. My one complaint is the app is very buggy. You have to register the product online then find and set a shipping address. Then you can register. However, registration fails if anything in your app address is different than online or you have not set shipping address. If that was not bad enough if you have two units the app dies almost every time you open it. I have to open the app 40-50 times to get it to completely open on average. This has to be done every time you empty tank because for some reason the ion filter defaults to off.I still have to say even though the app is a pain this is the best I have seen. So yes I bought the second one knowing that the app was buggy. When they fix the app I. My opinion it will be perfect 5 stars

Broke in 48 Hours. Replacement NIGHTMARE

AngryDehuCustomer 7/20/2020

I originally bought a 70 pint unit from Lowe's and it broke after 48 hours of use. Frigidaire (actually, Electrolux) said they would replace it if I just followed their instructions. One of those steps was to cut the cord and send a pic - thereby rendering it useless and un-returnable to Lowe's. I did and they sent me a 50 pint unit. Not only is the 50 pint unit smaller than my original purchase but it retails for $100 less than the one I bought. So now I have a 70 pint unit I cannot return, a 50 pint unit that I have to empty more often, and I've lost $100 in the whole ordeal. I've called customer service numerous times and waited 45 minutes each time before I got through to someone. Keep being told a manager will return my call after I explain the situation but it's been 3 weeks now. Very dissatisfied!

App and wifi features don't work

SadOwner2020 7/17/2020

The app is poorly designed, forgets your login information and requires you to register with all of your personal details before allowing configuration. I have to turn off my local wifi to use the app at all, and the appliance keeps dropping off my network. I'm not a technical neophyte either. Disappointed that I paid extra for 'smart' features that just don't work.

Effective Dehumidifier, Weak App

bfschuil123 7/14/2020

The dehumidifier is doing a great job, my issue is that the 'notifications' for the dehumidifier are only within the app - there are no push notifications. It defeats the point having to open the app to check what's going on with your dehumidifier when an event that requires your attention should notify you directly

Good dehumidifier

Jb78 7/11/2020

I™€™ve been using it in dry mode to dehumidify our family and downstairs bedroom that™€™s usually to humid, and it™€™s been effective. The bucket is easy to empty, which is great. The reason I™€™m not giving 5 stars is the Wifi connectivity is flaky and it™€™d be great to have a way to schedule certain times at which to run the dehumidifier.

Driest basement ever

Comfy Basement 6/29/2020

Purchased this humidifier to replace that last two GE Humidifiers that quit working after 3 years each. This unit has so many more features than the GE models. I mostly like the wifi app that allows me to monitor and modify the current program from anywhere in the house. The basement has never been dryer and less dusty. So far a great purchase.

Easy setup and works great!

KyleN 6/25/2020

I have had this for a few weeks now and it works great. Going from not having one to this workhorse makes it clear to me that we needed one to help dehumidify our basement. Setup was a breeze and from there I have barely had to pay attention to it (I have a hose draining it). I like the app and all the options/settings this thing has! My basement feels and smells so much better!

Great Product and Features

StanCA 6/25/2020

Immediately after installing this product and replacing an existing dehumidifier, my finished basement was drier and more comfortable. I love the Internet access.

Wifi does not work, app is lousy

FLuser 6/24/2020

I too have had fairly poor customer service. Connecting via wifi took many tries, even after watching their video. Just FYI, you have to sign on to the dehumidifier as a wifi source in order to hook up. This is not intuitive. Even once doing this, it took MANY tried to connect. Once connected it asked me to register via app and kept giving me the same error message (ECP0108) to check my info (name/address, etc) for accuracy. I wasted hours last week and called customer service and wasted much hold time and then transferred to the ™€œSmart™€ department, where there are only 8 phone representatives and a busy signal most times when I call. I was given things to try on the PC browser and wasted another couple hours today (between phone and on my app and PC) still getting the same error message. I have bought several of these dehumidifiers, primarily because of the wifi access, and so far....not impressed with the unit, the support or the app. I should have read the iTunes reviews before buying this dehumidifier. Mostly 1 star out of 5. (I think the total rating at the time of this review was 1.4 on iTunes app)

Wi-Fi don™€™t work

JWiFi 6/7/2020

Followed instructions on app it said it connected then it lost connection and I cannot get it to connect or back into set-up mode. I can™€™t find instructions and all web searches show others are having same problem. Seems like a good dehumidifier but I bought it for the controls and Wi-Fi feature. I am pretty disappointed for a Wi-Fi feature not having simple directions somewhere on the World Wide Web makes me think that there not a solution. I have spent thousands on Frigidaire appliances my only disappointment is this units Wi-Fi and instructions to fix. I am an IT professional so I can only imagine what others are feeling.
