Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, you have a Samsung dryer, is that correct ?


If so, the "tO" error code as you may or may not know is in relation to poor air flow or a failed thermistor..."Thermistor Open" = tO. (I would advise cleaning the vent thoroughly and the lint screen with hot water and mild soap and run a cycle with the vent off to see if the tO re-appears.)

Here's how you can check the thermistor.

**Unplug the unit before proceeding...safety first**


This test can be done on the control board with an ohm meter. Find pins number 2 & 6 on the white connector as shown here...

The values you'll want to see are around 10K ohms (10,000ohms) at room temperature.

To access the PCB you must first remove the top. To do so you simply remove the screws at the back, i.e.

macmarkus_877.jpg
Once you have removed the top, you'll have access to the main control board/PCB.

Then you should be capable of testing the thermistor (blue and red - 2 & 6 wires on the white connector with 4 wires in total)...with an ohm meter of course. Let me know if anything is not clear and I'll try to be available asap.
I will try to help in any manner I can going forward of course as well. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Dryer takes a long time to dry


If the dryer won't takes to long to dry, check the venting. A clogged or partially clogged vent will reduce the air flow through the dryer and greatly increase the drying time.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

Dryer heats but not drying


could ber one of a couple things. 1 the exhaust line is clogged. I know this sounds silly but if the hour air can't get out properly it throws off the entire cycle and it won't warm up right. 2 the thermostat could be bad 3 the fan could be not spinning due to being cracked or otherwise messed up

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.
