  1. The ornamental design for a dehumidifier housing, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is an isometric view of an embodiment of a dehumidifier housing showing my new design.

FIG. 2 is a front elevation view of the dehumidifier housing.

FIG. 3 is a back elevation view of the dehumidifier housing.

FIG. 4 is a right side elevation view of the dehumidifier housing. The right side elevation view is a mirror image of the left side elevation view of the dehumidifier housing.

FIG. 5 is a top plan view of the dehumidifier housing; and,

FIG. 6 is a bottom plan view of the dehumidifier housing.

The features shown in broken lines depict environmental subject matter only and form no part of the claimed design.
