SOURCE: Thermal Fuse

First of all stop replacing the fuses and using the dryer it could burn down your house. The problem is the vent is clogged (not necessarily in the dryer) make sure also that the vent flex is not excessively long behind the dryer and is not kinked when the dryer is pushed back.

SOURCE: thermal fuse keeps blowing

they will blow if the heat dont get out of the dryer and builds up inside / check and see if vent hose behind dryer is kinked or vent going outside is open / it will be one of those two.

SOURCE: keep blowing fuses

hi, make sure you are using a time delay fuse and not a regular fuse. this may be the reason why the fuse keeps blowing out on your dryer.

This is for the ELECTRIC MODEL Only. I have the DV448AEPl and had the same problem... I cleaned all of the lint from every nook and cranny and ordered a "repair kit" from Sears (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Samsung-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-DV448AEPXAA/1482/0151200?searchedModel=dv448&blt=) there is even a blow up of the parts there - I ordered part numbers , DC47-00015A, thermostat, DC47-00018A - thermostat and DC47-00019A - dryer heater. The heater is relatively easy to get to if your not squeamish about removing some screws and taking the front off the dryer. Once the front is off you can clean even more lint from the dryer. Remove the heater unit by unscrewing the single screw accessed from the front of the dryer and then disconnecting all of the connectors.
Lastly - once I took the heater assembly out I found that a dime had made its way into the heater coil and was shorting it out... Probably could have got by by just removing the dime and cleaning the coil but I figured that since I was elbow deep in the thing I might as well clean it all up and install the new parts.... Cost of parts was about $80.00 w/shipping. Cost of a repairman to knock on my door here is $150 so I came out ahead on this one... Good luck.

My Samsung DV488AEW/XAA Dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse. It has good airflow; there's no lint buildup. I've replaced the fuse 4 times now and also the thermal cutoff and the heating element. Help


Check the airflow if it is restricted at the output, you need to have the vents cleaned. The airflow is backing up and causing overheating inside the unit.

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.

Dryer heats for maybe 1 minute then stops. Samsung Model DV328AGW/XAA


In the rear of the dryer is a thermal limiter which will kick in when the exhaust temp is too high and can cause a fire. One link will show what the limiter looks like and the other will show how to commonly get to the limiter. Your mileage may vary.
