Question about Samsung DV448AEE Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Samsung Overheating Push start, select setting and within a few seconds get OVERHEATING error. Lint trap was cleaned after every load, but I did a deep clean on the venting from the back of the machine to the outside of the house and there was a ton a **** in there. Ran it again - it ran for a minute then OVERHEAT error. went outside and some additional lint had blown all the way through, so I think the venting line is clear now. i am wondering if the air restriction could of caused the failure of a part - like the thermistor? and if so it is hard to replace?

SOURCE: My dryer is blowing lint out through the vent

this is normal for lint to blown out the ducting because not all the lint will be collected on the lint filter when you remove the filter some lint may fall of down into the duct housing.there is nothing ot worry about

SOURCE: Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup

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.

Sounds like you may need to take the whole dryer apart and check for lint build-up, or for a "worn-out "overheat thermostat switch" in the back or the bottom of the machine.
There are from 3 to 6 in most machines.
These parts, often the size of a quarter or half-dollar, usually have 2 wires hooked to them, and will shut off your dryer if it overheats (to prevent a fire).
These switches will require a testing instreument to check them.
Be blessed.

Dryer seems to be overheating within 3 minutes of turning on. No lint in trap or outside in the trap. What else could I check??

may want to check inside the housing, u may have had a lint build up somehow? Ur cycling thermostat or thermal cut off may be going haywire on you and u should check them with a multi-meter. for continuity. is it overheating and shutting off? If so u may have bad motor windings which will heat up rapidly then shut down the machine? but they usually will atleast let u run it about 20 minutes b4 shutting down

Wascomat dryer error codes

Check the following link:
On page 13 it identifies the E 08 error as overheating air (inlet or outlet). Chances are, it is the outlet that has gotten gunked up from lint or other material. Pull the vent tube off, vacuum out lint traps, clean the outlet tube, reset the machine. If the dryer is linked with other dryers on a multiple-link vent system, cleaning the vent lines may be necessary to avoid the problem.

Electric dryer runs shuts off then starts again on its own

This could be a bunch of different things. #1 detach dryer vent and clean out. Try running dryer with vent not attached for 10 seconds. (Warning, lint and sand will likely come blasting out the back. Reattach and try. #2 Likely is that you have lint buildup inside. Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. Clean air path from exhaust through lint trap. Look inside or remove heater as well. You are likely overheating the dryer and the sensor is shutting it down. #3. Unplug the heating element and then run dryer. Does it shut off still? No Then the sensor on the heating element is bad. Yes then the timer is bad.

I have opened the back of my Hoover tumble dryer and taken out all the is overheating all of the time and a friend suggested that the belt might be broken. I unplugged the machine and moved the...

It goes arount the motor pully and the lower side of the belt goes up and over the tension pully. Also on you overheating problem turn your dryer on with no heat and see if air is coming out of the outside vent. It should be a good volume. The next thing to check is the blower housing just follow the exhaust vent and the lint trap they will lead you to the blower wheel housing and duct to the lint trap. Remove the screws around the outside metal casing and seperate the casing exsposing the blower wheel you will find a lot of debris. Make sure the wheel is secure to the center spindle. Then make sure your hose leaving the dryer is not kinked when you push the dryer back and it is clean. Always unplug your dryer before starting on repairs and good luck..These are the most common problems

Gets warm but not hot enough.

Occaisionally this is due to either dryer being set to a 'delicate' or 'low' setting. Most frequently it's due to an obstruction in airflow so the heating coil is cycling off to prevent overheating. The vent at the back of your dryer should be cleaned out (by sucking out the lint with a vacumn hose) at least once a year. The vent pipe out of your house as well. Make sure that the flap on the outside of your house is opening and allowing free air circulation when the dryer is on. And make sure you clean your lint trap every time you use the dryer.

Gas dryer - inadequate heat

Clean out your lint tray and hose. It sounds as if it is stopped up. The gas dryer automatically shuts off to prevent fires or overheating. The thermostat is probably O.K. since it will run for a few seconds each time.Let me know what you find out. Clean the lint trap first.
