Hi, I just cleaned my dehumidifier and had the same problem as you. I used a spray water bottle and was not aware that the humidity sensor was being soaked. Very stupid of me!! Luckily I have two same dehumidifiers and used the other sensor to replace the one that I so stupidly ruined, and behold my machine worked again. Now I have to buy another sensor. To make sure we are talking about the same thing, my sensor is white,about 1 inch by 1/2 of an inch. It as 4 wires connected to it. To access it you remove the water tank, you will see 2 screws. Remove those, and pry the front panel loose. Be careful the top of the panel is held by two plastic hooks, they break easy. The sensor is located on the right side just above the radiator, under a produting oval lip which as foam around its rim. The wire colors are red black blue and yellow. Good luck Herman

First, make sure the rectangular filter on the back side is clean so air can flow over the coils freely. Try to place the dehumidifier on a table or something to get it off the floor. (floor level is cooler than head level) If you still have icing issues, replace sensor. (part # WK23X10011 )

Most dehumidifiers these days have a built in defrost control, which turns the compressor off when the coils frost up while the fan continues to blow to help melt the frost off, so if it is frosting you may need a new defrost control, but first check the following: If your model has an air filter, clean it, as restriction of air flow will contribute to icing. Try to move the unit to a warmer location. Usually the best way to do this is to get it above the floor as far as possible, as the air temp is warmer closer to the ceiling than it is at the floor. Make sure there is plenty of room for air to circulate. (don't push it against a wall)

Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).
Replaced the main controller board to fix it.
For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.

the problem is with the switch which is connected to the float arm, try pulling it manually, it shoud turn on and off your unit if working properly
