Hard to say.  In general, I'd say you made too many customizations,
and in non-trivial ways as well.  Here's all I need to get hunspell
working with the en_US dictionary:

  (setq ispell-program-name
        (locate-file "hunspell" exec-path exec-suffixes 'file-executable-p))

          "[']" nil ("-r") nil utf-8)))

That's it!  No eval-after-load, and no direct setting of
ispell-dictionary-alist.  Try modeling your customizations along these
lines, and see if that makes the problem go away.

I said "M-$", not "M-x $".
