Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The GE ADEW70LW is the replacement model of the discontinued GE ADEL70LR, which removed moisture from the air just as well as the Frigidaire. Among the dehumidifiers we tested, the GE ADEL70LR’s continuous drain hose operation was the simplest to set up.
Side drain. Energy star. R410A refrigerant. Fill Window, automatic shutoff. 35% -80% relative humidity range. Air filter and bucket fill sensors. 3 fan speeds. Rolls on wheels. Easy carry handle
This GE dehumidifier holds nearly 18 pints of water.
This 70-pint per day model is excellent at removing humidity and has very good efficiency.

What reviewers didn't like

But it was a tiny bit noisier in our tests, the interface was a bit more confusing, and its controls were harder to read in a dim basement.
Somewhat noisy. Less efficient
It doesn't have an extended warranty that covers the sealed system.
It's not as quiet as top rated models.
