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,

        Too much moisture in our basement led to the search for a dehumidifier. This one works great. Easy to set up and use. Too heavy to carry up and down stairs.

          Comments about Danby DDR6009REE Dehumidifier:

          The internet ad was complete and helpful and when I preferred to order by phone, the 'salesman' was even more helpful, polite and considerate. Delivery was perfect. I bought this dehumidifier for my 1000 sq.ft. basement in northern Michigan where I'm storing many items from my parents home before they are dispersed to family or sold. It's especially important that the wood furniture not be exposed to three seasons of mold and mildew producing humidity. After watching this unit easily maintain the humidity level at 45 - 50% for 4 months, I am very satisfied. The water collection 'pan' is a little awkward/tippy to remove but I got the hang of it in a few tries and just pour it into a bucket for carrying upstairs - no problem. The true test of its value will be if it works for many more 9-month seasons. I have my doubts, machinery isn't made to last these days. Our consuming culture/economy has become a consuming vicious circle - the economy won't survive if we don't keep consuming, so products are made to be easily and QUICKLY consumed. Let's hope Danby will be the exception. As for SYLVANE, they were extremely helpful and forthcoming in their assessment of what I might expect from this product they sell. You can't ask for more than that!

          It started out fine but just doesn't seem to be working that well. It will run for hours and be bone dry. also, the unit does not shut down right away when you remove the water bucket. When I called the business closest to me for service , they said they would not service it. I did get a little water when I tested it in my bathroom after about 2 hours.

            We have had a Whirlpool that worked well but was noisy and an LG brand that did not last very long. We have only had this unit for about 6 months. If it lasts, we will be very satisfied.

                  We used this in the basement where we had some furniture that the drawers wouldn't open because it was so humid...we put this down there and practically overnight it took so much water out of the air we were shocked, and the drawers opened again. We were so happy with it...we hooked it up to the drain in the basement so we don't have to empty the water pan. Super easy!! Runs all the time with no maintenance.

                    Comments about Danby DDR6009REE Dehumidifier:

                    This summer was the worst humidity level my basement has ever had in the 12 years that I lived in my home. I had a 50 pint dehumidifier and it seemed like a HUMIDifier instead! (I guess it was on it's way out and I didn't realize it). It was always moist when I entered my basement,and last week I noticed that mold had started to grow on "my stuff". I found sylvane online and loved that there was a video describing the unit. I also called customer service and found the reps to be very helpful in explaining to me the differences between the pint size capacities and also a little lesson in how dehumidifiers work (amount of coils etc...). The price seemed reasonable so I searched around and discovered that the price was not just reasonable it was GREAT with no tax and free shipping(even the big box stores were considerably higher in price!). I ordered the unit on Tuesday around 2pm and I couldn't believe when it was on my doorstep the next day at 1:30pm. The delivery to my front door was much more convenient then going to a store, standing in line and hauling it home. I set it up--so simple,drained it into my sump pump and could start to feel the difference within several hours. It is now 3 days later and my basement is back to it's normal self. I can't believe that I didn't put two and two together in not realizing that my old dehumidifier wasn't working properly. It is the difference of night and day with the Danby DDR6009REE 60 pint! I am confident that this will do the job. Now I just have to clean some of "my stuff" that got moldy and I'll be back in business. I'm so happy to have my dry basement back!
