Hisense is a celebrated brand that manufactures and sells appliances and electronics. So it’s likely that you have at least one Hisense product in your home.

If it is their dehumidifier, you might have noticed one thing – it doesn’t come with a dedicated reset button.

Interestingly, most dehumidifiers on the market today don’t come with a reset button, and the same goes for Hisense dehumidifiers. So if, for any reason, your Hisense unit needs to be reset, here are the steps you need to follow.

  • Hisense dehumidifiers often don’t have a dedicated button for resetting the system.
  • A power cycle can reset the controls and resolve minor performance issues.
  • Users can also try the filter monitor reset feature after cleaning the filters to reset the system.

Many problems and errors you might face when using a Hisense dehumidifier can often be resolved by resetting the unit. However, because most dehumidifiers from Hisense don’t come with a dedicated reset button, the process isn’t always as intuitive.

How To Reset a Hisense Dehumidifier


Although your Hisense dehumidifier might not have a reset button, it will still have the reset function. All you need to do is figure out how to do it with the available controls.

Before you move through the next steps, see to it that you check your user manual for the specific steps your dehumidifier needs for a proper reset. If it doesn’t indicate how to do it, or if you don’t have your user manual ready, you can try these instructions.

1. Power Cycle

To ‘power cycle’ an appliance or electronic means to momentarily cut the power source to reboot the system. Here’s how to power cycle your Hisense dehumidifier:

  • Please turn off the unit using its dedicated ON/OFF button or switch.
  • Empty the water collection reservoir.
  • Pull the plug and wait 10-15 seconds.
  • Plug in the unit and turn it on.

Performing a power cycle should reset all of the system controls and settings. Turning the machine back on too soon after turning off the power might not reset the dehumidifier.

Make sure you wait long enough before turning it on again.

2. Reset Filter Monitor

This specific option resets the unit’s filter monitor – a mechanism inside your dehumidifier that detects how much dirt has accumulated on its filter.

The filter monitor will warn you if the filter is too dirty. While the filter monitor will reset after you replace it, it might not reset if you clean it.

To reset the filter monitor on your Hisense dehumidifier, follow these steps:

  • Press and hold the ‘Clean Filter’ button for 5 seconds.
  • After the light turns off, wait 5-10 seconds.
  • Press the ‘Clean Filter’ button once after waiting.
  • The display should return to normal, and the filter monitor should be properly reset.

Remember that resetting the filter monitor isn’t the same for all models.

Some Hisense dehumidifiers, like the DH3020k1W, require that you press the power button instead of the Clean Filter button to reset the filter monitor.


If the reset options listed above don’t solve your Hisense dehumidifier’s error, then you should make sure to call a professional.

Units still under warranty can get free maintenance and repairs through the manufacturer’s after-sales service option.


Fixing some of the errors that a Hisense dehumidifier might encounter requires nothing more than a hard reset. And while your unit might not have a dedicated button for that, it should allow you to reset the system by using the instructions above.

But if your Hisense dehumidifier still doesn’t work after trying these solutions, you might have to visit a professional to have it serviced.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Should You Reset a Hisense Dehumidifier?

Resetting a dehumidifier can resolve numerous performance errors and malfunctions.

If your Hisense dehumidifier isn’t collecting water, won’t let you change its settings, or won’t work as intended, a hard reset might solve the problem.

What Is ‘Auto Restart’ on a Dehumidifier?

Some dehumidifiers have an ‘auto restart’ function. This means that if a dehumidifier runs during a power outage, it will turn back on and resume functioning at the same settings it had when the power went out.

This is why it’s important to turn your unit off and then unplug it if you plan to reset the system.

If you unplug the unit and restore power too soon, the dehumidifier might interpret the temporary power loss as a power outage. This means it will continue to function using the same settings as before.

Turning off the dehumidifier, unplugging it, and waiting a long enough period before powering it up again can prevent it from using the auto restart feature.
