Question about Samsung DV448AEE Electric Dryer

DV448AEP sensor drying doesn't seem to work

Hi, I got this $1300 dryer and it's got great features, well, I really love the washer:), but the sensor drying feature never seems to get the clothes quite dry enough. My old $300 GE dryer did a much better job of toasty hot clothes on the medium setting, now if I use the medium setting clothes come out quite damp, and on "more dry" they come out dry for the most part, but a little cold and possibly damp in a few spots. I've tried putting a blanket or something something in by itself (3 times) and the sensor shuts off the dryer within minutes leaving it damp. The vent piping is solid vent pipe, no flex, and air flow is strong out of the exhaust. Basically should I just run the thing at the highest setting or try to get a service call? I would really like to know if this is normal for this type of dryer. Thanks.

    Hi iwhitacre, did you ever fix your problem with your Samsung dryer sensor? I have the same exact problem (which I also posted since you only had one response and it had to do with the wrinkle release cycle). I have had 3 of these dryers in my home now in less than 2 weeks and they have ALL had this problem. Just curious! Thanks.

I had the same problem with mine. My wrinkle free setting some how got turned off. As soon as I turned that back on machine kept running and dried the clothes fine.

My kenmore elite #110.73012181 electric dryer with autonsense feature no longer sensing, keeps on drying for hours after clothes dry when on less dry mode or normal dry mode


The drying circuit has to have a sensor to control heat and the timer controls time (on timed drying). Often sensors fail "open" and dryers stop drying. This sensor or the circuit seems to have failed closed (runs all the time). I suspect the sensor has failed in the drying control.

The dry sensor cycle will stop after 3 min... I tried big loads, small loads, normal loads and it seems the sensor doesn't work...


Try checking the dryer vent to be sure it is not clogged or partially blocked with lint. You may have to replace the sensor if all else is well

Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup


Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.

Frigidaire AEQ8000 dryer doesn't completely dry clothes


1. Gas valve coilsIgniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

Moisture sensor


With out a sensor you auto dry will not work (less dry/more dry)

the sensor is just inside the door to the right two metal lines ... take a wet towel and make sure that the sensor is clean...

I would suggest you check the vent that it is clean and clear and open...

also check the #8577274 Thermistor

hope it helps
