I would say you probably live in the Northern part of the Country, Have concrete rather than block walls, (block walls are warmer) and do not have central air conditioning. Let us know if I'm way off base.
So.... Does your dehumidifier run constantly? How much water does it remove in 24 hours? You need to do two things. Stop warm moist air from getting into your basement, and dry out the basement. You may have to get a larger dehumidifier, or add a second one. Caulk and seal around the perimiter of the house to prevent the moist air from entering.
