Question about Samsung DV365ETBGWR/A3 White Electric Dryer 7.3 Cu Ft, 9 Cycles
I was recently doing some wiring and accidentally cut into the 220 dryer wire. I fixed the wire and power is now going to the dryer, but the dryer won't turn on at all. I know that it is getting power to the dryer. Would a thermal fuse cause the dryer to not turn on at all or would it most likely be something wrong with the control board. Thanks for your help.
Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)
Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.
Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,
Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.
In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum
Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Since you didn't list the model number from the id tag, I can't be specific but many things could have be shorted out if the 220 V receptacle got a hot to the neutral.
A 220 volt circuit is just two 110 volt circuits together, so sensors, motors, blower motors could all be suspect. Without some indications it is impossible to give you an idea of what he needs. Please ask him what EXACTLY the dryer is doing, and I will do my best to give you some advice on what he needs. With just the electricity wired incorrectly I would have to recommend you take all electronic parts to be sure you took the right one, But if you did that it would be almost as cheap to ship him a new dryer.
