Dryer does not heat correctly code F31


The thermostat which is a round 2 wire control on the blower box on the back of the dryer controls the heat on all dryers. always shut off power when checking any electrical appliance. Clothes dryers are wired with 2 voltages, The 240 volt supply is for the heating element only, while the 120 volt supply gives power to the timer and motor that spins the drum and powers any lights and switches. If the heating element is coming on, try replacing the thermostat. As always unplug the dryer first.

Tip

SENSOR DRY IN SAMSUNG DRYERS


As a tech, I'm constantly fielding questions about loads of clothes not drying properly in the larger Samsung dryers--and this tip can be used for a lot of dryers with the sensor-dry feature. Sensor drying uses a pair of metal strips located on the filter holder or on the back wall in the dryer. When wet clothes rub against the strips, this sends a signal to the main board which tells the dryer to keep going. Unless large loads are used, the consumer should use "timed dry". This is because smaller loads won't hit the sensor strips often enough and cause the computer to count down too rapidly. Also, consumers should try to make sure like items are placed with like items( shirts with shirts, pants with pants, towels with towels, etc) Thick clothing(jeans, heavy sweatshirts, etc.) usually will have damp spots like pockets due to the moisture not being able to contact the sensor strips--the technology is not 100%. Also, if there are problems with the timer starting to count down too rapidly all the time, and dryer sheets are used, the sensor strips may be coated with a waxy layer. Use some super fine emory cloth to polish the coating off of the sensor strips. You very well might find that the problem is solved and not have to initiate a service call!

Tip

Dryer Taking too Long to Dry Your Clothes?


A very common issue we deal with on FixYa is clothes dryers that are taking too long to dry clothes. Here's a few tips on keeping your drying time to the minimum.
1. Check and empty your lint trap before each load. If air flow is restricted, your dryer will need longer to get the job done. A clean lint trap will allow for maximum intake air to the dryer blower.
2. Check the exhaust ductwork for lint buildup. If the 4" ductwork that carries your warm, moist, lint-laden air to the exterior of your home is blocked with years of lint and moisture, chances are pretty good your dryer is taking longer than it should to get your clothes dry.
  • Disconnect the dryer power cord (and gas line if a gas unit), slide the dryer forward far enough to access the 4" ductwork clamp at the back of the dryer. Disconnect the ductwork at the dryer and separate to inspect both in the dryer exhaust duct and the ductwork as well.
  • Remove all built up lint. You may need to access under the floor, or in the crawlspace, or basement to get at all the areas that lint may be built up. Remember that when there's an elbow (turn) chances are pretty good there's lint in there, so take the time to separate the ductwork where needed to give it a thorough cleanout.
  • Long straight sections of ductwork can be easily cleaned by purchasing a "webster" style pole brush.
  • Clean the exhaust duct of the dryer but be careful not to damage anything inside your dryer
  • Reconnect and turn the dryer on air fluff to blow the rest out.
3. Remove lint build up from inside the machine
  • Turn power off again
  • Remove the front cover of your dryer
  • Remove the front drum support/air duct from the front of the dryer
  • Carefully vacuum the lint out of the dryer with soft brush attachment on your vac. Be careful not to damage any ignitor or electrical items.
  • Clean the inside of the lint trap duct of sediment/ buildup
4. Make sure your washing machine is spinning the water out of your loads correctly. This one is pretty obvious, but it bears mentioning.
If your clothes feel wetter than normal, it's definitely going to take longer to dry. Be sure to wash "like" items. A medium/large load of towels is better than a towel and 5 cotton shirts ( that towel will throw the load off balance and your machine won't spin as fast to get the water out).
5. Medium-sized loads dry faster than mega-large-cram-it-in loads.
The idea of getting all you can into a dryer (or washer) to save time and money will end up costing you both time and money. I've seen this played out many times in my laundromats: You will find that a medium, loosely packed load will dry faster and with less wrinkles and less ironing needed.


Using these guidelines will help keep your drying times to a minimum and also allow your machine to work for many years to come.

3 BATH TOWELS AND ONE HAND TOWEL WERE NOT DRY AFTER 60 MINUTES IN DRYER . THIS HAS BEEN A PROBLEM SINCE WE BOUGHT DRYER IN MAY. A LOAD OF UNDERWEAR, T SHIRTS AND SWEAT SOCKS ALSO WILL NOT DRY IN AN HOUR...


HI,
If the unit is less than a year, you problem is a restricted vent system and not in the unit either. A simple test would be disconnect the vent from the back of the unit, run the dryer. If your clothes dry faster, your problem is in the vent system. If no improvement, problem is in the dryer. Get back to me and let me know how this goes.
Thanks

My roper REX3514 Dryer will only dry on the time cycle.


If you use a lot of dryer sheets, it will build up an oily residue on the sensor strips causing a "false" reading. Light sandpaper and alchohol over the strips should clean them well. Another possibility, is if you have a mixed load, ie..towels, socks, jeans , if a sock or something light keeps hitting the strips, the dryer thinks the whole load is dry (it doesn't know there are different thing in there) Try keeping loads similar when using auto dry.

Red t-shirt has run all over the wash. now have pink socks, pink backgrounds etc


did you dry any of this load in the dryer? If you did, the color is set you wont get it out.

If not rewash everything, Except the red t shirt! in the Hottest water the clothing can take. If its whites use a little bleach. you could also use a color safe bleach on colored items. You may want to divide up the load into similar items. Experiment what have you got to loose.

One time we washer a gray sweatshirt with a red sweatshirt, why the gray turned Pink! I dont know we line dried it and washed again, The pink came out.

Good luck

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes


To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoYP_YsGP68 . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.
