Question about Dehumidifiers
If your dehumidifier is working it will be extracting water from the atmosphere, into a container that will or should need emptying fairly regularly.
If it is working ok it isn't necessarily going to significantly reduce the humidity in the room as most rooms are connected to the outside world in a number of ways...

this unit is very simular to an air conditioner except it has a humidistat instead of a thermistat.. if your handy with a continuity tester unplug the unit find the humidistat and check to see if its open or if its good then call the company at 1 800 322 3848 or contact the web site at [email protected] Good Luck

This error code indicates that the problem is most likely a shorted defrost thermistor or possibly a pinched wire going to the thermistor. You will need to replace the sensor assembly - part # 6877A30013L. The Sears website has it listed for 9.99 + shipping. The humidity sensor & defrost thermistor come together in a wiring harness that plugs onto the main circuit board. It is fairly simple to repair. Just remove the front & rear grill & the metal cabinet. Remove the thermistor from the copper tube on the cooling lines; remove the humidity sensor from the front of the evaporator; pull the wire plug off the bucket switch; & remove the small 7 pin plug from the main circuit board inside the metal control box. Reverse procedure to install new sensor assembly.

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.

I have the same problem, just started it after not using it for the winter and it runs and runs and no water. I believe the coolant has leaked from the sealed system and there is nothing you can do. I've had it for 1 year and it has a 5 year warranty. I know from experience, this is the 3rd dehumidifier that I have had this problem with, all different brands. Call for service, I am betting you have not had it very long.
