SOURCE: changing heating element

No need to buy the whole pan. The replacement coil is way less. 5300622032
Very easy dryer to repair. Start by popping the top and then removing the front. Get te drum out and remove the heater assembly. Remove the old coil. NOTE: when replacing the new coil be vewy vewy careful not to stretch the coil too much as this causes a hot spot and shortens the life of the coil considerably as in like one load maybe. LOL.

My dryer stopped heating and i changed the vuse and blow again can u tell me whats the problem thank u


Hi,
The blown fuse is most likely caused by a short circuit in the dryer.
The first component I would check is the heater element as this is a highly stressed component in any electrical appliance.
Replace the blown fuse, then disconnect the wires to the heating element( Make sure you insulate the wires so as not to cause a short circuit against the dryer body).
Now turn on the drier & see if the fuse still blows. If it still blows, the problem is then most likely with the drum motor.
If it doesn't blow, you have only to replace the heating element.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

How do I remove a Samsung Dryer DV4006 heating element


You will NOT have to remove the drum, as the previous poster said. Unplug the dryer (VERY IMPORTANT). Undo the screws for the cover at the top right at the back of the dryer. Your element is here. Detach it from the cover plate. The undo the bottom cover plate so you can access the plug where the element attaches. You will need to reach in and manipulate the wire out of the clips (easy).
To put it back, just reverse what I've said.
