Hi jianyuzeng...

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.

If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Samsung front load electric dryer not getting hot


There is a thermal sensor type breaker leading to the heating element. They are usually round, about quarter size, with a spade connector on each end. They can be checked by a OHM meter to see if they make a connection from one terminal to the other. There may be more than one. If that checks good then you need to check the heating elements for resistance for one end to the other. If there is no resistance then the element is bad.

Go visit the local appliance repair store... a small Mom and Pop's store are usually great to help you.. explain what's happening and they should be able to sell you a sensor kit, I have replaced mine twice in 16 years... no biggie if you are semi electrical and mechanically inclined...

Samsung Model DV220AEW/XAA 7.3 CU FT 7 cycle. No HOT air comes out!!! HELP?


sounds like the heating element has gone or the themal component has died. you can test it with a multimeter by setting it to ohms and putting it across the terminals of the heater and if you get a reading then it is not an open circuit after that test the thermal cutoff the same way if it has a reading then it is good but if it stays at 0 then it is no good

Dryer runs but no heat


The thermal protection switch, shaped somewhat like a round button and held in with two screws, has probably failed (open circuit). One of the wires that goes to the heating coil runs through this switch. It is easy to check. Once you have found and accessed it, and with your drier disconnected from its power source, disconnect the switch and hook an ohm meter to the two terminals. It should show full continuity. If it does not, it is faulty. It should only open circuit when it is very hot. NEVER bypass this switch, or you could burn your house down. Replace the faulty switch.

When you pulled the lint filter something may have fallen into the blower which is just below the filter. Use a flashlight to try and see down the chute, if you cant find what is stuck there, you may need to call for service to disassemble the dryer to remove the object so it does not destroy the blower.
