Wow, am I impressed, I have never owned a dehumidifier before, so I have had no experience with other brands. This Danby DDR6009REE was purchased for use in our Sierra Mountain vacation home. The house sits on the downward slope on the side of a mountain. The rain and snow drain towards the front of the foundation. There are ample drains available for the rain, but the snow melts slowly and it absorbs into the ground rather than running to the drains. Then water is then absorbed through the concrete foundation and makes the red dirt floor in the basement wet, and it stays wet through the winter and dries out some in the some summer months, but never completely.

So I did a little research online and this one seemed to be the best machine available for the money. I ordered it quite easily online from Sylvane.com. It arrived in about the time frame I expected to deliver, and arrived in good shape. I plugged it in and set up the programming and was I astonished at the amount of water it pulled from the air, and it seemed to do it job ever so quickly. I don't think the fan noise it too load at all. But the best part about the unit, that hasn't been mentioned in other's reviews, is you can use a standard garden hose replacing the one it comes with if you need a longer hose to drain to the outside. I thought I was going to have to go the hardware store and fashion some kind of hook up or extension hose to get the drain hose to reach the outdoors for continuous drain.

After reading lot of reviews from the web search, I have decided to purchase the Danby Dehumidifier Model DDR6009REE at Sylvane. I ordered on Friday and received on following Tuesday. I opened and installed it in my basement. There is a note saying the fan will be on all time whenever the power is on. This is not I expected. I though the fan will automatically turn on and off at the desired humidity level. Anyway, it is not important to me since it works much better than the one I have used from Sear. However, I have problem about the "Bucket Full" light. The "Bucket Full" light will illuminates after turn on about 2 to 3 minutes with no water in the water tank. I use continuous Drain Outlet. Read the manual, but missing page 4 and 5.for the operating instructions. Downloaded the manual from the Danby web site. Try to reseat the water tank but the "Bucket Full" light problem is not fixed and it will illuminates unexpected after power is on. Since I am using the continuous Drain Outlet, I decided to use the tape to force to turn off the safety switch. Afterward it works very well and quiet by comparing the one I have used for over 8 years from Sear. Anyway, it is too soon to tell how well it will work overtime. As of now, I have happy with the product,

    Comments about Danby DDR6009REE Dehumidifier:

    This dehumidifier is used during winter in a 20x30 workshop building that has a wall mounted gas heater.

    This dehumdifer runs continuously and helps minimize condensation on windows when the heater is working. It is quiet and the water pan is emptied once every 12 hours or when the unit is full, which ever comes first.

    The water pan could use a better handle arrangment on the outside for withdrawing it from the unit. The side grooves can be slippery and if the pan is full, water can slop out if the pan tilts too much.

      The unit has my basement humidity problems under control. It has auto shut off for the dehumidifier, but not the fan. I was told that this helps with the energy consumption. If so, I am happy.

          Great product, preforms excellent. Our home is located very close to lake and river so humidity WAS an issue prior to receiving this unit. We are very very satisfied. Easy to install and operate.

            It took just few days to get my 1500 square foot basement smelling fresh again. After running constant in the beginning I have turned it down and may be doing it again. I did some research on Dehumidifiers and this was in the top 3 list ...I would purchase another if ever needed.

              Only one negative about this dehumidifier - a fan keeps running after the unit is off, so it's hard to figure out if it is off or not.

                I purchased this to replace another unit from a well known applicance manufactuer that some aspects failed less than 12 months after purchase. I use the unit in my basement, which is 24X26, and I have been very pleased with the performance, so far. I was a little concerned about the fan running all the time, but I have not noticed any real change in my electric bill. I set the unit for 55% humidity, and the unit has done a good job on maintaining this level. Only issue is one time, not too long after hooking up, the water filled the water pan instead of going into the sump hole where the hose hookup should send it. I readjusted the connections, and so far have not had a repeat performance. I have noticed when the coil de-icing is happening, and the fan kicks up to high, but does reurn to low when the cycle is finished. So far, I am quite pleased. I am hoping for the same results next year at this time.

                  Bought a new home that had a damp basement. Fixed the leaks and got the Danby dehumidifier. Initially it filled the tank in a day, then went down to filling the tank every 3 or 4 days. The basement is now completely dry, no smell, and the dehumifier is off. Probably will need to go back on in the summer, but I am not worried about any high humidity this year.
