I have a Samsung DV218AEW Electric Dryer that continues to heat during cooling cycle. Have replaced heating coil, all 4 thermostats, cleaned out all duct work, checked the blower for blockages but...


At this point I'd complain to the company as it sounds like a fire hazard. Check to see if there has been a recall on it, but I wouldn't turn it on and leave the house. It is not your fault......it is a manufacturers defect...at least that is my opinion.

The dryer is heating so nothing is getting dry. The filter is clean and the load is small.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

In the auto dry mode the the dryer continues to add time to the cycle even if the clothes are dry. I suspect the drying sensor is not working.


You would be correct.Try and run the dryer empty for a few minutes if the time does not decrease then replace the sensor bars. In rare case the control module needs to be replaced.

Dryer won't heat


Check the exhaust vents for any build up of lint inside
A moister sensor detects this and will keep the heat off until it is cleaned thoroughly

I have a roper dryer. I took it apart today


Remove all duct work connected to this dryer. Clean thoroughly. You will find amass of lint inside of it causing your problem. If not the moister sensor is not working properly and needs to be replaced.
I do hope you will find a clogged vent tube for it is easier to clean the tube than to replace the sensor. The sensor is a fail safe part. It keeps the dryer from catching on fire when the lint tube is clogged up

MDG4000BWW gas neptune dryer The timed dry/air fluff doesn't work until it gets to damp dry or wrinkle release. Works on the other cycles. Have removed lint screen & 4" hose cleaned and vacuumed.

only after the time has run out will it tumble with no heat
on other setting the machine is stopping the heat and putting the machine into a cool down or air fluff mode
sounds like it isworking normally

Same problem. Just bought it used, all vents are clean


If it shows cooling, it sounds like the sensor bars need to be cleaned off. They are two silver strips about 5 inches long just on the drum side of the lint filter. When dryer softener sheets are used, the bars get coated with a waxy substance, and then they do not detect the moisture in the clothes, so they think the clothes are dry, and proceed to the cool down cycle. You should be able to do a timed dry cycle just as it is, but will need to clean off the bars to get all the auto dry cycles to work. NOTE: If timed dry does not heat, post a comment for additional items to check.

Dle2532 lg dryer, cooling light is always on


I'll take a stab that you use dryer softener sheets. These will deposit a coating on the two metal sensor bars (about 4 inches long, very near the lint filter inside the drum) which prevents the sensor from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet, so the dryer jumps to the cool down portion of the cycle. Clean the metal bars off and it should work again. (note: the bars are not in the cycle if you choose time dry instead of using the automatic cycles)

"cooling" display won't turn off causing heating problems.


Try cleaning off the two curved metal bars (about 4 inches long) on the inside near the lint filter. They are what senses the moisture on automatic dry. When you use fabric softener sheets, the stuff from the fabric softener sheets can coat the bars, which makes the dryer think the clothes are already dry, and puts the dryer into cool down. (using time dry will also take the moisture sensor out of the cycle, if you'd like) This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.
