Question about Samsung DV210AEW Sensor Dry Electric Dryer - White
I have a samsung electric dryer. It turns on and the drum turns. But it is not heating. The cooling light flashes the whole time. How can I fix it?
This problem could be one of many components , heater, t hermostat, thermal fuse, control board, wiring you would need to be noledgable about volt ohm meter to diagnose this problem . but try this turn breaker at panel off and back on this will reset the computer

SOURCE: DRYER RACK DOES NOT DRY CLOTHES
try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.

Check to make sure your child lock is off first. Hold the time and signal buttons simultaneously for three seconds. Unlikely, but do check. Some of these dryers have a safety switch that the idler pulley has to engage to allow the dryer to run. I tried to find a schematic for this model but could not get one to tell if you do have a safety switch. Look at the arm of the idler pulley and see if it is contacting the switch actuator correctly. When a belt breaks or pops off, sometimes the arm of the pulley will move to the other side of the switch actuator and will not allow the dryer to run once a belt is reistalled. I would also look to see if a wire was knocked off of the motor switch when your belt came off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description and my experience, I'd say possibly the belt has come off, 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 it's accessible from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,
if it's not you'll need to go from the front...do-able 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.
Hope that moves you forward...or even better, to the finish line, lol.
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.
