Samsung has the manual and a trouble-shooting guide on the product support page: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/electric-dryers-dv400ewhd . The direct link to the manual is currently http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201501/20150120165209818/HUDSON_DRY_DV456_DC68-03170A-09_AA.pdf .

Usually if the drum won't tumble, the problem is with the belt, the drum rollers, bearings or shaft that the connect the drum to the motor or the motor.

Can you turn the drum by hand easily? Then look closely at the belt. Replace it if it is damaged. If the drum won't turn, disconnect the belt and check if the drum turns. If it doesn't, check the drum support rollers for wear. Replace all of the support bearings at once if any are faulty. Check the support rollers and shaft at the back of the drum for damage. If you hear a lot of noise as you turn the drum, then the bearings are possibly bad. Check that the plastic slides that stabilize the front of the drum are fine.

Finally check the motor. Replace this if it is faulty. To see a parts diagram and price lists for any parts, see http://www.appliancepartspros.com/parts-for-samsung-dv400ewhdwr-aa-0001.html . Other sites also have the parts for the dryer.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Defy Tumble dryer not heating

Is this an electric dryer? If so, the most common problem would be a burned-out heating element. There could also be a defective temperature sensor inside. This will need to be evaluated by a qualified appliance repair technician to find the exact cause.

SOURCE: dryer does not tumble, but heats up

Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

if this helps please vote me a fix ya

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Belt,
Motor,
Door switch.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: its a hyundai trajet,aa said crankshaft sensor not

it is inside the timing cover in most cases with hyundai the timing belt will have to be removed so the crank gear can come off the sensor is usually behind the gear especially if it is a 6cyl if it is a 4 cyl then the wire goes behind the timing belt make sure the timing marks are lined up so when you reassemble it is lined up

I have Samsung gas dryer model DV410. no heat, replaced two thermal fuse and hi low limit. Now it only works with timed cycle mode. the rest mode, it runs only for least the 5 minutes and shut off.


timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

Why does my aeg tumble dryer only heat up on the 30 minute program


Not familiar with that model, but if it only heats on a timed cycle, but not on a "dryness" cycle, I would suspect a defective moisture sensor.

This may be a problem with your moisture sensor or the control that read the sensor. If it is under warranty have Samsung fix it for free. Make sure the cycle settings are correct before tinkering. First make sure the electronics are not too dusty. You could blow them off or vacuum them. Dirt particles can conduct electricity and make it read wrong. Next check the electrical connection for the moisture sensor. See if its location is in the manual. If it doesn't work after some tinkering asked the service for the dryer about possibly replacing the sensor but first try hard to get it to work.
