Question about Samsung DV419AEW 7.4 Cu. Ft. Electric Steam Front Load Dryer - White

Open Question

Samsung steam dryer VRT DV419AEW stopped spinning/lights come on

We heard a "clicking" noise when the dryer was in cycle drying a load- so my BF went to see what was going on , stopped the cycle and turned the drum when he heard a loud noise. The lights power on but the drum will not turn and nothing else comes on. Only the lights come on with the cycle minutes left in the cycle we were running. He suspects the belt came off? Could there be something more serious? Our problem is moving the unit to even get to the backside (in a very tight space). Thank you very very much

SOURCE: have a samsung dryer model DV209AEW/XAA. I "hand

Check to make sure your child lock is off first. Hold the time and signal buttons simultaneously for three seconds. Unlikely, but do check. Some of these dryers have a safety switch that the idler pulley has to engage to allow the dryer to run. I tried to find a schematic for this model but could not get one to tell if you do have a safety switch. Look at the arm of the idler pulley and see if it is contacting the switch actuator correctly. When a belt breaks or pops off, sometimes the arm of the pulley will move to the other side of the switch actuator and will not allow the dryer to run once a belt is reistalled. I would also look to see if a wire was knocked off of the motor switch when your belt came off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

SOURCE: I was drying and heard a kind of banging pop noise

http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG

If you hear a loud bang while your dryer is working, and you notice that the
drum has stopped turning, chances are the drivebelt has snapped.
Fortunately, replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward operation that
can be handled with a few simple tools.
First, unplug the dryer. Lift the lint-screen cover and pull out the lint screen
If your dryer has a lint screen on the inside of the door, skip this step.
Then remove the two screws that are under the cover. To unlatch the dryer top,
insert a thin-blade putty knife between the top and front panel,
about 2 1/2 in. in from one corner. Push in on the knife to release the locking
clip, lift the corner, then release the clip on the other side. Swing the top
up and lean it against the wall.
Next, move to the lower toe panel. Slip the putty knife between the lower panel
and the door panel at one side and twist the knife to release the clip
Then release the opposite clip and lift the panel up and off the hinge springs.
To support the dryer drum while the belt is being replaced, place scrap wood
under the front of the drum.
Loosen the two screws at each side of the bottom of the front panel.
Move to the top of the panel and remove the screws from the inside of the
cabinet that hold the front panel to the sides.
Slide the old belt off the drum.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing the belt
Lean the front panel out slightly and allow the drum to rest on the scrap wood
support. Drop the new dryer belt between the front panel and the drum, and
loop it over the drum. Then, lift the drum slightly while pushing the front
panel back into position.
Replace the screws at the top inside of the front panel, tighten the lower panel
screws and remove the scrap wood from under the drum. Check to make sure that
the rear drum seal fits properly over the lip on the rear bulkhead.
Position the new belt where the old belt was, with the grooved side of the belt
facing down.
Now, move to the motor area and pull out the old belt. To route the new belt
around the idler and drive pulley, first pass the entire belt, doubled up,
under the idler pulley. Then, push the idler belt toward the motor, slip the
belt around the motor pulley and release the tension on the idler pulley.

Open the dryer door and rotate the drum counterclockwise a few times to make
sure the belt is tracking properly. Lower the top and press down at each
corner to engage the clips. Lift the lint-screen cover, replace the two screws
and reinstall the lint screen. Finally, secure the lower front panel and turn
on the dryer for a test.

SOURCE: the drum stopped spinning on

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Yes it does have a belt. I'd say your assessment is almost bang on, based on your description and my experience. I've seen this many, many times...though the belt usually doesn't break it just comes off. Very common for Samsung dryers for whatever reason.

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


The good news is if it's accessible from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,

macmarkus_375.jpg


if it's not you'll need to go from the front...do-able just a little more involved, let me know.

Once in the back the belt should look like this when routed properly, with the "V" grooves towards the drum and motor pulley.

i.e.

macmarkus_376.jpg

Hope that moves you forward...or even better, to the finish line, lol.

Let me know what you find. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro.

I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Put full load of wet in, had set for heavy dry,

Hello Scott,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and my experience, I'd say possibly the belt has come off,( hence the big "thud" ) thus activating the "kill switch".
