Samsung DV210AGW/XAA Dryer, drum wont turn nor heat up

Dv210AGW/XAA dry will turn on when I press the on botton but the drum does not turn nor does the heat come on when I press start. Also, tested on auto and maual, nothing. Should also note that I tested with and without cloths, nothing still. And the clock does not count down but left on, the dry thinks it completed and the wrinkle free alarm sounds and then it ends. I opened the unit and the belt is fine, drum spins manualy and/or if I spin it via the fan attached to the motor. any clues into the issue. Oh, lastly, ran it last night with a light load, no issues. this morning, put in a pair of jeans and nothing."

    Sorry, made a wrong comment about the clock not timing does, it does time down. Also, as noted, there are no error codes. If I open the door while I wait, it does error as it should so the panel looks to be working as expected

Hi all, thanks for your comments. to note, it's my dryer not my washer so the suggested solutions wont work. Also, forgot to note, the unit is only 14 months old and just out of warranty. What I've done so far:
- vacuumed the filter
- striped the dryer, meaning removed top. front and small exhaust panel in the back
- vacuumed everything
- checked the belt, tight, not loose, broken or off the roles
- child safty not enguaged, toggled it anyway to be safe
- the checked micro switch next to belt by motor, not engaged
put it all back, turned on with nothing, tried every setting in auto and manual tied high to low temps and times, the time is noted, such as 40 min, but does not time down, over time, the unit sound the I'm done tone, if left as is, continues to chime then end like it did something. all along, the drum never rotated nor did it heat up.
Does one impact the other, such as if the drum does not roll then the heater wont start or vise-a-versa. Could the control panel have taken a hit or are there sensors that might have shut down to prevent the unit from starting are there fuse's that I didn't see that might have been tripped.

SOURCE: Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer

you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.

I have a Samsung DV5451AEW/XAA dryer that will NOT shut off. It ran a cycle and finished drying. The panel is now turned off and non responsive, but the drum is running without heat. I have left the dryer...

Sounds like you have the spin relay for the drum, stuck in a closed position. If you can locate where it is, you van give it a few taps to get it to disengage. You will then have to try to clean the contact on the relay that is sticking with a toothbrush and some spray contact cleaner that is safe for plastic. If this doesn't work, you will have to replace the relay or the contact. I hope this helps.

I have a Samsung DV330AEB XAA 04 dryer. It has been turning off during loads on high heat timed dry. Any ideas as to why?


Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Does Samsung DV448AEW/XAA dryer have a reset switch ?

If it over heated most dryers use thermal fuses. They must be replaced if they have blown. Samsung is one of the most difficult that I have seen.
