Question about Dryers
We have a Samsung front load electric dv220aew. It will not turn on. We tried cleaning out the filter and hose. It will sometimes turn on after unplugging it, but turns off when I try to start it. An electrician came today and the outlet is good along with the cord. He tried Samsung tech support but they would not help him. It is only 3.5 years old. Any ideas? Thanks!
Sounds like you have a blown fuse. Best way to deter min would be to unplug the dryer and get a look inside. There are always 1 or 2 fuses on or near the control board. Remove the fuse, if you have fuses that will fit test them out. Always use a fuse with the same exact limitations. If you don't have any spare fuses take it to your local hardware store. they can test and replace the fuse. When these internal fuses go out it is usually an indication of a bigger problem and replacing the fuses only fixes it temporarily.
The best would be to get a more reliable electrician to look your machine over.
If an electrician has to phone tech support and still cant fix your problem he better not be charging you.

probably the thermistor is bad. located on the blower housing in front of the motor nest to the thermostat. if you tilt the console back(remove the screws at either side, either visible or under snap off console ends) there is a tech sheet wiring diagram to trouble shoot the circut. unplug it first...

hi. I can help you.
Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:

Your belt is likely broken. I am presuming you DO NOT have a setting on your machine that allows the drum to not turn or if yours does have such a setting you have not selected it!!!
I am not intimately familiar with your particular LG model even though FixYa.com rates me a LG expert.
Dryer tops are generally held in place with spring clips. Pop the top being careful to not mar the finish. Look for the belt (about 3/8 inch or so wide). The belt will be near the middle of the drum. Try to pick it up. If it is broken, you will be able to remove it. If it has slack in it but you can't remove it, it is probably off the motor pulley. Put it around the pulley through the belt tensioner.
Remove the front - use care you don't damage any wires.
The drum will fall free at this point. Take pictures with your cell phone to aid in reassembly.
You can get replacement belts from a FixYa.com advertiser, your local appliance parts place or visit www.repairclinic.com

check the main power and terminal block make sure there is power and no problems with the terminal block.
also a bad thermal fuse can cause a problem with the power check the thermal fuse and make sure they have continuity.the last thing to look at is the main control board these can cost up 150.00 dollars depending on where you get it.Bottm line yes i would say it is worth fixing

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
ND error in your Front Load washer indicates no drain issue. To start with check the drain hose for any clogs and try cleaning it, then check restriction in drain pump assembly or loose wire at the pump, located inside the bottom front access panel of the unit. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
