The Samsung Dryer tension pulley assembly is counter-intuitive (especially when your arms are stuck in the small sharp-edged hole). The image shows the proper setup and belt path..._206.jpg

This photo is from a Samsung DV409AEW, but I assume they are quite likely the same. I also turned the drum (clockwise, which is the wrong way) and the same thing happened. The thud in my case was the spring that holds the tension pulley arm in place falling to the bottom of the dryer. If your situation is the same, spinning the drum caused the belt to come off of the idler pulley and the tension spring fell off. It seems to happen frequently based on web searches.
Again, assuming the DV409Axx is the same, you can get at it from behind. There should be 3 screws (2 on the top and 1 on the bottom) of the plate that holds the vent pipe output assembly. That assembly can then be removed. There will be a vent pipe extension that comes out with the assembly.
Once inside, see if the spring is off, and if so re-attach it per the photo below. It is counter-intuitive that the spring pulls the arm down, rather than to the left. Hopefully this will be your issue.
Putting the pipe extension and outlet assembly back in can take a bit of fiddling... but if you lay on the floor, you can actually shine a flashlight in the crack to see what you're doing.
Hope this helps!

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: Samsung dryer, model: DV317AEG turns on, but won't spin

It's the thermostat on the blower housing. Remove the cover from the back and it will be able to see it directly across. Unscrew it and check for continuity. You may also want to clean up the blower housing as the excessive heat in it could cause the thermostat to overheat.
Also watch this youtube video and you also be able to repair the thermostat without replacing it. It worked like magic for me.

My Samsung dryer (model #DV210AEW/XAA) will turn on but will not work. Its shows a symbol that is shown below Temp. & Time.

that is your child lock. if you hold down the temp and time buttons for about 5 seconds, at the same time, the light should go out and unit should work like normal.

DV210AEW/XAA won't heat

More than likely the element is shorted or the thermal cutout on the element assm has failed you can test them for continuity if they don;t have continuity they are bad. 1st reset your house breaker, the dryer needs a full 220volts to turn the heater on, if that is good check the cord and make sure you haven't lost 220 there, then check the element and cutout.

I doubt its the main board. Try seeing if the drum is tight and seeing if the belt broke by spinning it by hand. If the drum is real sloppy and you can't feel motor tension, you need a belt. I would rule out the mainboard until last because the belt is like 89 cents.
