I have samsung dv220aew/xaa dryer, that gets too hot and kicks code HE. New element, thermistor and cleaned thoroughly. Gets hot, codes on all heat settings. Any ideas?


DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

SAMSUNG DRYER NOT HEATING


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


If you have already cleaned the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

AF on digital Whirlpool Cabrio dryer. I have taken my electric blower and cleaned the pipes. When the tubing is NOT connected to the back of the dryer, with the dryer on, no air is even coming...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Most likely the hub on the blower wheel is damaged.

The Blower Wheel is item 10 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5515181&diagram_id=28198922#d28198922

I used this model number: WED6600VW0 The blower wheel is not model specific...

Some things to check... in the lint filter area make sure the recepticle is free of lint. Wash the lint filter with vinegar and water then soap and water if you use dryer fabric softener sheets. They look clean but can be completely clogged.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My husband cleaned the dryer vent with a brush today and now it is so loud and vibrating. It is a Neptune bought in 1999


Some lint found its way back into the dryer and is caught up in the blower wheel,the speed at which these blower wheels turn any trash that gets hung up will cause a vibration and noise.You are probably going to have to remove the front panel and blower wheel cover to get access to the wheel to clean it out properly. Its fairly easy BUT FIRST UNPLUG THE DRYER remove the screws holding the door,pull out on the front panel at the top where it meets the top,then you will see some screws holding brackets securing the top remove these.then remove screws holding front bulkhead.then you will see the blower housing ,while there make sure blower wheel is not loose on the shaft from the recent vibrating Hope this helps......

Dryer is heating but not blowing air


when was the last time you cleaned the dryer?try removing the vent line from the back of dryer to see if any air is blowing out,also is the dryer noisy?you could have a bad blower wheel.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and behind that duct you'll find the blower wheel,also vac out the dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow it out,make sure the outside vent isn't blocked with anything before you blow the vent line out,send model number if you need help getting the blower wheel part number if that's your problem,you should clean the dryer at least once a year so you don't have a fire,good luck

My dryer is taking forever to dry clothes. Very damp and a lot of condensation when I open the dryer. It's model # MDE508DAYW


Good day,
Sounds like the vent system is badly blocked, the blower wheel has stripped off it's shaft, or there is a lot of lint in the blower wheel/lint screen area.
1. Remove the vent hose and see if your getting air moving thru smarty. Maytag moves a lot of air. If O.K. test dryer with vent off for performance. Clean or replace vent hose as needed.
2. Blower wheel sheared on it's shaft. You have to remove the front panel to see if the wheel is loose. Old version had 2 screws on the bottom of the front panel. Remove, disconnect door switch wires and remove. New style (no screws on bottom) requires a putty knife forced on each corner of where the top meets the front. About an 1 1/2 inch in from the edge. Force in, releasing clip, and pulling the top of the front panel toward you. Lift off.

Should the blower wheel be bad, replace but make sure the area between the blower wheel and door filter are cleaned.

BLOWER WHEEL LOOSE


It's not unusual for this to happen. Especially if the unit is old and has never been "tuned-up" every couple of years. And by tune-up, I mean clean all the dust out of the unit, clean out the exhaust vent and check all moving parts. Take a look at the blower and its mounting hardware. Does anything look worn or damaged? How old is this dryer?

Thermodisk keeps going out


Three words for you: Airflow airflow airflow.

I estimate 95% of all (electric) dryer no heats are caused by a lack of airflow causing the thermal cut out to blow.

Clean dryer venting system (dryer vent hose all the way to the exterior vent on the building) and clean the dryer itself from lint filter to the blower wheel.

It is also possible your blower wheel may be damaged and not giving the airflow needed to keep the dryer within normal temp limits.
