I have misplaced my manual. I have a Samsung Moisture Sensor dryer. the power works but the it wont tumble. Model #DV400EWHDWR/AA SERIAL # Y6915AEFB00979F. PLEASE HELP.


Samsung has the manual and a trouble-shooting guide on the product support page: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/electric-dryers-dv400ewhd . The direct link to the manual is currently http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201501/20150120165209818/HUDSON_DRY_DV456_DC68-03170A-09_AA.pdf .

Usually if the drum won't tumble, the problem is with the belt, the drum rollers, bearings or shaft that the connect the drum to the motor or the motor.

Can you turn the drum by hand easily? Then look closely at the belt. Replace it if it is damaged. If the drum won't turn, disconnect the belt and check if the drum turns. If it doesn't, check the drum support rollers for wear. Replace all of the support bearings at once if any are faulty. Check the support rollers and shaft at the back of the drum for damage. If you hear a lot of noise as you turn the drum, then the bearings are possibly bad. Check that the plastic slides that stabilize the front of the drum are fine.

Finally check the motor. Replace this if it is faulty. To see a parts diagram and price lists for any parts, see http://www.appliancepartspros.com/parts-for-samsung-dv400ewhdwr-aa-0001.html . Other sites also have the parts for the dryer.

I hope this helps.

My candy GOFS262 washing machine is filling the drum to the top with water on every cycle but doing nothing else after that, the clothes jst sit there in the water, I've left it to see if something...


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.
Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

The washer loads water and pumps it out like normal, but it does not spin. It goes through the cycle but with no spinning of the drum. Why dose it not spin?


broken belt on drum drive motor? bad motor on drum? bad connection on motor? if you remove the oval panel on the back you can see the motor, belt and drum assembly

Front loading washing machine will not tumble or spin


This sounds like a drive belt porblem. The belt that connects the drum motor to the drum has slipped/broken/worn out. A new drive belt will most likey fix this one...

Alternately, a loose or broken pulley. I don't suspect a bad motor, since you say you can hear it clicking and whiring...
