Problem re the Hisense 30... both the humidity sensor & temperature bulb have quit working in sync. Here's a great last resort fix... un-plug... remove the water bucket and the outer case (it splits like a clam shell and hinges at the top)... access the circuit board (remove 1 screw) and locate the humidity sensor on the left side (it has 1/4" white plastic cover). Remove the cover (it opens at the bottom) and then twist the sensor gently a couple of times so that the 2 wires touch, then fold it back. Next, gently twist the small black temperature bulb (at the immediate left of the humidity sensor) a couple of times so that the wires touch... then fold it back. Before reassembly, replace the water bucket then plug in the unit. It should run and read an E1 code... which is good. If it does, un-plug and reassemble the unit. From this point, the unit will run normally however continuously... BUT WHO CARES... it's now working! NOTE: it will shut off when the bucket is full.

Check the evaporator for icing during operation. If no ice, you have low refrigerant or bad compressor.

i don't know. consider using you vacuum to suck the filter clean. be safe. unplug your machine and use only the
least amount of suction to do the job. don't make a hole in the filter. if you do, use a small piece of tape over the hole before turning on your unit.

try a different electrical outlet. turn it on and set it at highest reading then reduce the setting to the lowest.
if still not running, unplug it and fiddle with the high level
contact or switch on the bucket. seat the bucket properly then plug it back in to test if it works.

i don't know. please make sure your filter is clean. unplug your unit . gently shake giggle and move the float up and down. the switch for the float may not quite be making a firm contact.

i don't know.
it is common for dehumidifiers to not collect water
in cold weather. please consider obtaining a portable device that shows how humid the air is where your machine is located. i find 55 or 60 is suitable for my basement.

Be careful. i do not know. set at highest setting and let it run. while running, reduce setting to the lowest over a few minutes. at a lower setting you should be able to tell that the compressor has started. run it for 5 minutes, then
unplug your machine. next, feel the cooling coils to see if they are very cold. if they are not cold, your unit needs to be serviced.

i don't know. be careful with electricity. if possible, try running normal washer load along with your dryer but with [no heat] 'cold air only' to see if they will keep running.
if they run OK, consider shutting off both washer and dryer. shut off main electrical panel and change fuses for both washer and dryer. turn hydro on and run both again
with your normal settings. if they fail again please call for repairs. my dryer would not run and although everything looked and tested out OK, i had to replace a small 6x8"
electrical box having 2 only 30 amp screw in fuses.
then it ran OK.

i don't know. if moisture high, until resolved or repaired, consider using an electrical timer to shut it off and on for
your choice of cycles.
