An excellent solution for controlling humidity, the Winix WDH871 70-Pint Dehumidifier combats excess moisture in temperatures as low as 36 degrees Fahrenheit.

Humid air can cause stuffiness in your indoor environment, leave a musty smell in the air, and can contribute to structural damage to your home. If left untreated, excess moisture in the air may promote mold and mildew growth and trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. The energy-efficient Winix WDH871 Dehumidifier effectively removes water vapor from the air and lowers humidity, providing you with fresh, dry air around-the-clock.
The Winix 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Built-in Pump features a water collection bucket, a no-leak gravity drain attachment, and the following additional benefits:
Compact Design – This sleek and modern residential dehumidifier fits in virtually any space.
Washable Air Filter – The dehumidifier's flexible air inlet filter maintains durability and continues removing particle impurities even after frequent cleanings.
Easily Transportable – Built-in handles and rolling casters make it a breeze to move the Winix WDH871 Dehumidifier from room to room.
Electronic Control Panel: A digital display and soft-touch buttons are located on the top of the dehumidifier for easy accessibility and straightforward operation.
Bucket-Full Indicator – Located on the electronic control panel, this light illuminates to notify you when the water collection container is full.
Antimicrobial Technology: The collection bucket is protected with a Microban finish. This prevents the build-up of illness- and odor-causing bacteria and reduces your exposure to these germs.
Low Maintenance: Routine upkeep of this residential dehumidifier is minimal. Just dust the front air grilles, wash the air filter, and clean inside of the water bucket periodically.
Humid air means warmer, moist air, which makes you feel hot and clammy. As a result, your air conditioner has to work harder to cool your home. When used to supplement to your existing air conditioning system, portable dehumidifiers, such as the Winix WDH-871 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Built-In Pump, can accelerate the cooling process and even reduce your cooling costs. Lower indoor humidity means you can enjoy a cooler-feeling space without having to constantly adjust your thermostat.
High performance and energy efficiency are guaranteed with the Energy Star-rated and AHAM-certified Winix WDH871. To bolster efficiency further, the onboard Low Room Humidity Indicator monitors your indoor air and senses low humidity levels in order to signal when operation may not be needed. This function helps you conserve energy and save on your electricity bills.
The Winix 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Built-In Pump is loaded with automatic enhancements that make operation and maintenance effortless. Additionally, reliability features serve to extend the life of the unit in the event of frost buildup or water overflow.
During low temperature operation, frost may collect on the evaporator coils, reducing the dehumidifier’s performance. This Winix 70-pint dehumidifier is equipped with a built-in defrost control that senses frost buildup and turns the compressor off until the fan melts the frost off the coils, protecting the machine.
Auto Shut Off
The WDH871 dehumidifier automatically shuts down when the water bucket is full. The bucket full indicator light glows on the electronic control panel when the container reaches 17 pints or if the bucket is not securely in place. Once the bucket is emptied or placed in the proper position, operation resumes.
This function independently restarts the dehumidifier and resumes operation after a power failure or an outage. Once the power is restored, the dehumidifier will restart on the last programmed setting.
Intuitive Humidity Control
The Winix WDH-871 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Built-In Pump contains several operating modes for exceptional performance and maximum comfort. In Auto Mode, the fan speed is adjusted to maintain a 50 percent humidity level. The fan and compressor run nonstop in Continuous Mode. The continuous indicator will remain lit until the setting is adjusted or the power is turned off.
Humidity Mode allows you to set your ideal humidity level. Adjusting the desired humidity percentage is as easy as pushing the touch button on the control panel. The humidity level can be adjusted from 35 percent to 70 percent in increments of 5 percent. The electronic control panel displays the corresponding percentage while the fan cycles on and off to maintain your ideal humidity level.
In addition, the cycle run timer operates the dehumidifier in programmed cycles of 3, 6, or 12 hours. Once the cycle run time indicator is lit, the dehumidifier will maintain the last humidity level programmed. The control panel will show the time until shut down briefly before returning to humidity level display.
Multiple Water Drainage Methods
The Winix WDH871 70-Pint Dehumidifier offers three water removal methods. The first method requires you to manually drain the dehumidifier when the water bucket is full. Using the grip handles, simply remove and empty the water container and properly position it back into place. As a second option, the unit features a quick-connect, no-leak gravity drain hose attachment. This allows you to attach a garden hose (not included) to the drain connector and direct the water down into a nearby drain or to an outside location using the force of gravity.
As a third option, a built-in condensate pump will automatically empty water into a location you choose. The drainage pump can lift water up to 15 feet above the dehumidifier into a sink, outside through a window, in a floor drain, to a separate water container, or directly into a household plant. The dehumidifier comes with an 18-foot drain hose for use with the internal condensate pump.
