SOURCE: Heating element won't stay hot.

Hello vsjant3,
I assume you cheated out the door interlock switch when running your test. If you did not, then the dryer will shut off when the door is open as part of the safety interlock system. If you did cheat it out and the element shut off after about 20 seconds, then you may have a problem with one of the temp sensors. When an overtemp condition occurrs, it disables power to the heater and it will shut off.. Other considerations are the wiring to the heater.. if you had a poorly tightened heater wire that was ok when first started and cold but when hot and passing current opened, that would also exibit the same symptoms. If I were a betting man, I'd say you probably have a bad temp switch. You can measure them with an ohm meter ( dryer unplugged of course).. or simply jumper the wires together to bypass one to see if it is the fault. Make sure you replace a bad sensor and do not leave it bypassed or you risk fire.
Here is a link to the wiring diaghram of your dryer.. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

Hope that helps,,
Regards,
Rick

Dryer comes on, drum is turning, no heat


clean the vent tubing for lint build up causes the moister sensor to put the burner into the check mode if clogged up.
if the vents are clean and the same problem persist, check the spark ignitor. it clicks when igniting the burner upon start up

No heat


If lint is clogged inside the vent tubes that will cause the no heat problem, A moister sensor shuts down the burner for this reason. If the vents are clear the sensor is faulty. If no click is heard upon starting the dryer the spark ignitor is faulty too

2 yr old samsung dryer does not dry clothes totally


Remove the vent completely and clean it out 100 percent. Elbows (corner bends) will hold more than you think causing the dryer to keep the heat off. The sensors for the newer style dryers detect plugged up vents and shut down the heating modes. If cleaned and still no heat the spark ignitor has gone bad

Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.


Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL
