Question about Dryers
My EDE05 drier has stopped working. Lights are still on, but when you try to start it there is a humming sound - no heat, and no movement. I had a duvet in it at the time, and, and there was a burning smell coming from the dryer when I found it stopped. The drier has had a lot of use this week with me restarting it immediately after it stops, as the sensor isn't making large items dry on the first round. This dryer is <4yrs old. Do you think it's a belt? or is the engine wrecked? thanks!
A likely suspect is the belt which may have broken. If it broke while the duvet was being dried, it could have gotten roasted in the stationary drum.

Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

Any kind of lint or cobwebs on the element would cause a hot spot and fry the element or pop the limit that is mounted on top of the chamber. What your hubby soulda done is take the machine down and vacuum it out after sitting up so long. The fuse is not blown because it still runs so it must be the small guy pictured. It mount up top of the heat element chamber.

ck recalls on this issue.
there may be one.
do not buy samsung they are notorious for having problems.
sounds like the heating element and relay may have went out.
however if it does not start up at all it could be the motor itself.
