    no so check to see if you have a piece of clothing caught in the mouth of the drum or in the front bearing this could cause this.

Tip

SENSOR DRY IN SAMSUNG DRYERS


As a tech, I'm constantly fielding questions about loads of clothes not drying properly in the larger Samsung dryers--and this tip can be used for a lot of dryers with the sensor-dry feature. Sensor drying uses a pair of metal strips located on the filter holder or on the back wall in the dryer. When wet clothes rub against the strips, this sends a signal to the main board which tells the dryer to keep going. Unless large loads are used, the consumer should use "timed dry". This is because smaller loads won't hit the sensor strips often enough and cause the computer to count down too rapidly. Also, consumers should try to make sure like items are placed with like items( shirts with shirts, pants with pants, towels with towels, etc) Thick clothing(jeans, heavy sweatshirts, etc.) usually will have damp spots like pockets due to the moisture not being able to contact the sensor strips--the technology is not 100%. Also, if there are problems with the timer starting to count down too rapidly all the time, and dryer sheets are used, the sensor strips may be coated with a waxy layer. Use some super fine emory cloth to polish the coating off of the sensor strips. You very well might find that the problem is solved and not have to initiate a service call!

The only thing that I can think of that could produce a urine/ammonia smell is a shorted capacitor that is leaking. But normally when that happens the dryer motor will not start.

My phone got drown in beach water.it is not working.....


There are many solution for this none of wich are guaranteed, the best you can do is remove battery and sim, and then expose to heat and airflow, so after removing battery and sim, towel dry quickly to remove the immediate water, run a hair dryer over it for 10 minutes, then leave under a low heat for 24 hours such as a table lamp or a sunny window sill, then replace battery, best of luck.

Put a cup of powdered dishwashing detergent in the barrel ie. Sunlight or Palmolive. Place 1 cup of bleach in the soap dispenser. Run on a quick cycle with HOT/HOT and run complete cycle. This does help and don't forget to clean the filter on the lower part of the unit.

quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.

Bad smell


washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
