    If you don't want to spend the money to take it to a shop to check it out, then find someone that will dispose of it properly and buy a new one.

    There could be several reasons it won't draw water but most of them cost more then a new unit.

    Common sense isn't very common anymore.

    Have a qualified tech replace the run capacitor. This is simplest part. If more than that, dispose of the unit and get a new one. Check out more durable higher efficiency units like the Santa Fe Advance. They are more efficient and durable.

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    How old is the unit? More than 2 years, probably compressor failure. Known to happen on this model. Pop the front cover off after it's been running for a while and check for ice buildup.... Sure sign.

    LG may make good products, but I dont think I would got with an LG and expect a long life out of a dehumidifier. Plus the warranty process in my experience has been a huge pain in the but.
