    Hi Trevor Baker, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box like how long does it run before it shuts off and is it gas or electric.

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.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Dryer-stopped heating

first, check the exhaust, make sure every inch of it is clean on the inside. if there is any blockage, the heat will build up in the exhaust and a sensor will shut down the heating element.

SOURCE: Dryer takes a very long time to dry a load.

Some dryers have more than one heating elliment..

A way to check is -- take the exaust hose off.. Put a mirror so you can see into the hole & hopefully see the heating elliment(s).. When running they should glow like a stove burner..
If it is not gloing its not working & needs to be replaced..

I suspect that one may have went out..

I hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Does Samsung DV448AEW/XAA dryer have a reset switch ?


If it over heated most dryers use thermal fuses. They must be replaced if they have blown. Samsung is one of the most difficult that I have seen.

I want to know how hot my dryer gets. I do not have temp. controls on my model


Good Morning Tabitha,

I see that you are looking to see how hot your Frigidaire dryer, model# FER311FS, actually gets, due to you not having temperature controls on your particular model. Being that you have just the timed dry cycle, it provides up to 100 minutes of drying time at high heat for regular and permanent press items. When drying permanent press items, turn the cycle selector to 40-50 minutes. This is the average time needed to dry most loads of permanent press items. The load tumbles without heat during the last 10 minutes of the Timed Dry cycle. Use this setting to refresh clothing, pillows or blankets or to dust draperies. Heat-sensitive items such as plastics, foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials or items containing feathers or down should be dried only with this setting. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

DV328AEW/XAA dries one load and quits until cool


Typical 'motor over heat' or weak thermostat problem. Try starting the dryer just after it over heats. What happens..A humming sound?...motor is overheating and seized up....if quiet, could be motor as well. Check that your dryer vents are open and clear.

Samsung DV5451AEW electric dryer will not heat up when on any of the "automatic" modes. The dryer dries perfectly when set to a time dry, so it's heating up, but it will not dry when set to normal, heavy...


I would recommend calling a technician. Could be as you said a bad sensor. Make sure the sensor bars are clean. Use an alcohol pad or cloth and clean them.

My Samsung DV5451AEW/XAA will not dry cloths. The vent tube is not plugged and air flow is great through the whole vent system. How do I get to the heating element?


  • I am assuming this is electric. Yes?
  • Do you get any heat when there is no clothes in it?
  • Have you checked your voltage at the receptacle? If not 220V, if you have the old tube fuses, then one may be blown. If you are getting good heat with no clothes then replace your high limit thermostat. Lots to check before heading for the heating element. As for heating element they are usually either in the back of the tub or a tube on the right hand side of the dryer. You need to take the front panel off.

Samsung DV210AGW/XAA Dryer, drum wont turn nor heat up


hi all, thanks for your comments. to note, it's my dryer not my washer so the suggested solutions wont work. Also, forgot to note, the unit is only 14 months old and just out of warranty. What I've done so far:
- vacuumed the filter
- striped the dryer, meaning removed top. front and small exhaust panel in the back
- vacuumed everything
- checked the belt, tight, not loose, broken or off the roles
- child safty not enguaged, toggled it anyway to be safe
- the checked micro switch next to belt by motor, not engaged
put it all back, turned on with nothing, tried every setting in auto and manual tied high to low temps and times, the time is noted, such as 40 min, but does not time down, over time, the unit sound the I'm done tone, if left as is, continues to chime then end like it did something. all along, the drum never rotated nor did it heat up.
Does one impact the other, such as if the drum does not roll then the heater wont start or vise-a-versa. Could the control panel have taken a hit or are there sensors that might have shut down to prevent the unit from starting are there fuse's that I didn't see that might have been tripped.
