I don't know who did your basement moisture work. If he guarantees his work, I would have him come back and take a look.
I also don't know what a yellow crack means.
Are you saying it is leaking there? If so, you'll want to figure out why.
Most small dehumidifiers will not be able to keep up with excess moisture in a basement in hot weather, especially without EPS on the walls. The large dehumidifier may work for you, but it is hard to tell since you have given us limited information. It does not need to be installed -- it can just be plugged in, although you can hook it up to ducting if you want to supply more than one room with dehumidified air.
