In 2014 we tested ten different high capacity dehumidifiers. A few years ago we tested six more. More recently, we tested an additional eleven units. So, as of the time of this updated 50 pint (70 pint 2012 DOE) dehumidifier review guide we’ve tested and reviewed twenty-seven different high capacity dehumidifiers.

Each dehumidifier was bought either online or at a local brick and mortar store. We didn’t receive any “review units” from any manufacturer. We also haven’t received any compensation from any manufacturers in writing our reviews. Rest assured, that each and one of our reviews are 100% unbiased, written with the single aim of helping you, the consumer, make the best possible decision in buying a large capacity 50 pint dehumidifier for your home or place of business.

Do You Need Pump Drainage?

Before we get started with our recommendations, we need to cover pump drainage.

Collected condensate (water) can be removed from a dehumidifier in three different ways:

  1. Empty and replace the water collection bucket – what most consumers do
  2. Drain the dehumidifier using gravity drainage – a standard garden hose is connected to the dehumidifier and the dehumidifier is drained using gravity
  3. Drain the dehumidifier using pump drainage – a pump pushes the collected condensate through a drain hose

It’s important that you know that a pump is only necessary if you’re looking to drain the dehumidifier to a location above it or far away from it (more than a few ft.). If you can drain to a location below it or close to it (only a few ft.) then gravity drainage will work just fine.

All 27 of the 50 pint units we tested have a water tank that can be emptied and replaced. All 27 can easily be drained using gravity drainage using no extra purchased parts except for a garden hose. And, you guessed it, all 27 units can be drained using pump drainage.

But, there’s something special about 5 of these 27 units. On 5 of them, no extra parts or accessories are required to facilitate pump drainage. These are what we refer to as built-in pump dehumidifiers.

Goldstar dh504el 50-pint dehumidifier

To say it another way, 5 of the 27 50 pint dehumidifiers we’ve tested come equipped with a built-in pump – the pump is built into the dehumidifier and a drainage hose is included. To facilitate pump drainage with the other 22 50 pint units we tested you’ll need to buy a condensate pump and hosing separately.

Our Recommendation – Go With A Non-Built-In Pump Dehumidifier

Generally speaking, the best rated built-in pump dehumidifiers are not the best rated dehumidifiers overall. Every one of the built-in pump dehumidifiers we’ve tested has one or several major problems that prevents us from recommending it over any top rated non-built-in pump dehumidifier.

In addition, built-in pumps have a strong tendency to fail. A reliable stand-alone condensate pump costs in the neighborhood of $40. We think it’s safe to assume that dehumidifier manufacturers are spending nowhere close to as much on their built-in pumps.

How can we make this assumption? Just look at the failure rate of built-in pumps. We’ve surveyed countless consumer reviews for built-in pump units and we see time and time again how the unit’s built-in pump failed much earlier than the dehumidifier itself. Early pump failure is a known issue for built-in pump dehumidifiers.

Train sim class 390 class. With all of this in mind, our recommendation is, should you require pump drainage, that you buy a condensate pump and hosing separately. With a recommended non-built-in pump unit you’ll be getting a highly reliable durable dehumidifier at a lower price than a comparable built-in pump dehumidifier with similar features and functionality (outside of the built-in pump of course). With the money you save on buying a non-built-in pump dehumidifier you can easily buy a reliable condensate pump and hosing separately. This is our recommendation at this time.

(click on the model for our review and buying options)

Our #1 recommended dehumidifier for 2020 is the Frigidaire FFAD5033W1. This model replaces the previously top rated Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 in our rankings. As a more budget friendly second option, we recommend the hOmeLabs HME020031N. The hOmeLabs has many of the same features and much of the same functionality as the Frigidaire, but it’s more inexpensive. The FFAD5033W1 will remove moisture faster and it’s definitely a more durable, reliable dehumidifier. However, if you’re on a limited budget then the hOmeLabs is by no means a terrible compromise.

Rounding out the top 3 is the Black+Decker BDT50WTB. This dehumidifier performed very well in our moisture removal tests and is a good all-around alternative if the top 2 units are out of stock and you need a dehumidifier today.

CPSC, LG Electronics Inc. Announce Recall of Goldstar, General Electric, and Sears Kenmore Dehumidifiers

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), LG Electronics Inc., of Seoul, South Korea, is voluntarily recalling about 100,000 Goldstar, General Electric, and Sears Kenmore portable dehumidifiers. These dehumidifiers have an internal electrical connection that can overheat, presenting a potential fire hazard to consumers.
LG Electronics has received seven reports of dehumidifiers overheating, including four reports of fire within the units, with smoke damage to surrounding objects. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled dehumidifiers are white, with a red auto shut off button, and regulators for fan speed and humidity control. The dehumidifiers were manufactured between November 1998 and May 1999, and have the following brand names and model numbers: Goldstar DH2510, DH4010 and DH5010; General Electric AHG25LAG1, AHG40LAG1 and AHG50LAG1; and Sears Kenmore 580.59600890 (60-pint model only). The brand name is located to the left of the control unit. The model number is located behind the condensate bucket, on a sticker on the left hand side.
Mass merchandise and department stores nationwide sold the dehumidifiers from January 1999 through December 1999 for between $100 and $200.
Consumers should stop using the dehumidifiers immediately and call LG Electronics toll-free (800) 651-1602 anytime for a free repair. Consumers also can log on the company's website at
