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.

Here is a manual for your machine, in case you don't have one:
You have to join and log in to the following site, but they claim to have 2 answers:
Here's what one person said about the code on webogdery.com:
Unit keeps saying bucket full with nothing in it and it will have a CH 01 code come up on the display. NO reference to it in manual. Call customer NO service and they say to take it to a repair shop 1 1/2 hour drive away. I would not recomend this unit to anyone unless you like to keep buying new ones every year or so.
Not good news, but someone said the unit has a 5 year warranty, so you might check into that.
Another person said check the sensors:
1. The sensor that stops the unit when the water reservoir is removed is flimsy, often it does not detect that the reservoir is inserted back, one has to fiddle with the reservoir till the sensor finally "catches on", but then every now and then the mechanism will lock and will be unable to detect that the reservoir is full, resulting in a water spill.
It doesn't seem like anyone has figured out this code, but it has to be a sensor, or bad part, if you can just figure it out.
Good luck, hope some of this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

The switch that says 'Bucket is full' is not adjusted properly.
It will need to be adjusted, normally a screw driver or pliers,
so that when its empty the switch is not made or the contacts
If it is in adjustment properly, then the switch is bad and needs
Before you replace it, check to make sure the wires leading to it
are not touching, it may be sending a signal meaning 'full' by
electricaly touching each other at the switch.

Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.
To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
