Question about Samsung DV520AGP Dryer

Open Question

Dryer will not start

When start button is pressed dryer will not start (turn/cycle). A single clicking sound is heard after one second and then another after three seconds. Almost seems as if igniter is not able to light. Power and gas flow have been confirmed. Vents and lint tray are free of build-up.

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.

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...

Hello Scott,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and my experience, I'd say possibly the belt has come off,( hence the big "thud" ) thus activating the "kill switch".


I've seen this many, many times...though the belt usually doesn't break it just comes off. Very common for Samsung dryers for whatever reason.

**Unplug the unit before proceeding...safety first**...


The good news is if you can get to it from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,

macmarkus_375.jpg


if it's not accessible from back you'll need to go from the front...that's do-able too, just a little more involved. Let me know.

Once in the back the belt should look like this when routed properly, with the "V" grooves towards the drum and motor pulley.

i.e.

macmarkus_376.jpg

Hope that moves you forward...or even better, fixed up.

Let me know what you find. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro.

I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Rotate the cycle selector knob three clicks clockwise (3 o'clock position) from the Normal cycle option then press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds. Rotate the cycle selector knob one click counterclockwise (2 o'clock position) and the error code will appear in the digital display as an "E" followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. Post back the error code for further advice.
