If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

will either be the element or the thermostats. you should check the stats first. To do this remove the back panel that is protruding out of the back, this houses the element and the 2 small stats. Visually check the element and if it looks ok then test the 2 stats. Do this by using a multimeter on continuity setting or sounder/buzzer setting and place the probes 1 on each side of the stats and you should get continuity or a buzzer sound. If not you will need to replace both of them. Hope this helps

What is the model number for the samsung dryer? Usually when this happens there are small thermistors that act as safety devices in the dryer that will prevent the unit from running. For example there is a hi and low limit thermistor that if either will faulty the unit would not run at all the lights would come on but the unit would not run to prevent the unit from getting to hot. Message me back your model number and I will find your schematic showing the thermistors in your unit. You would have to check these thermistors with a multimeter and perform continutity tests on them to assure that they are functioning properly. I await your reply Thanks Rick

I have Samsung model WF316LAS/XAC washer and eventhough the machine is off, it is leaking water. What do I do to fix it?


do u mean it is leaking into the tub or out of tub? if when its off its leaking into tub then check ur water inlet valve with a meter for ohms and for live voltage it should show a full 120 at the coils.

What does E3 mean on my Samsung dryer


For most Samsung dryers, an E3 error could mean that the dryer tub is too heavy, the vent is clogged, the thermistor is faulty, the control unit is faulty, or that there is a loose wire at the main control unit.

If you were drying a very heavy item or too many articles, try a smaller load. Check the dryer vent to make sure that it isn't blocked or clogged with lint. (I've seen the flap on a vent shift and fail to swivel properly.) Next unplug the dryer and pull it forward. Remove the back from the top (control area) and check that the wiring harnesses are fully seated. You may want to check for corrosion or damaged wires. Next check the resistance of the thermistor (mounted on the blower wheel). (Assuming a room temperature environment, the resistance should be ~6 kilo ohms.) If the thermistor is faulty, it needs to be replaced. If the above steps don't solve the problem, then the control unit needs to be replaced. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/samsung-dryer-Parts/Model-dv665jwxaa0000/1482/0151200/50039961/00001.html has the parts breakdown and many parts are available.

If the dryer is still under warranty, contact Samsung for the repair. I hope this helps.

I own a Samsung dryer model DV218AEB/XAA. In both the sensor and timed cycles it shuts off early and goes dead for about 30 minutes before it comes back to life and the load can be restarted, only to


Hello,
I have a good idea that it may be the following;

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.
You can check out other possibilities and order parts here using the following link;

SAMSUNG MODEL DV218AEB/XAC LEAKING WATER


Dryers don't use water, washing machines do, so it's probably the washer.

If the dryer is drying, then it's not moisture.

Check the house drain for the washer, watch it drain and make sure it's not backing up, check the drain hose.

Samsung dryer DV218AEB shuts off in middle of dry cycle - "dead" mode


This is a sign of a bad motor. There is an overload protector on the motor that when the motor overheats it shuts the motor down.
