Question about Samsung DV448AEE Electric Dryer

Greetings: Dropped a clothespin into the area under the lint filter. Its not in the cabinet, so I assume it went nto the blower. Rotating the blower by hand does not generate any extra noises. How difficult is the blower assembly to remove? Thanks

Unplug the unit.
Remove the top panel(two bolts in the rear metric 10 or Phillips will work) There are four screws across the top front of the control panel remove those and the panel will swing out and down,move it back and forth while pulling upward it has plastic clips on the bottom that keep it in place.follow the wires from the panel to the control board and unplug them or you can just lay the whole panel on top of the unit.
Open the dryer door and remove the two phillips screws on either side at the bottom of the door opening,then remove the four screws across the top of the panel it will lean out toward you,unplug the door/light switch and lift the front panel off the bottom clips.the blower housing will be exposed.

Guessing ...

The blower normally blows cold air over the heat exchanger then into the drum, through the lint filter into the exhaust hose (assembly) to the great out of doors.

The "danger" here is that the clothes pin will start to collect lint and may eventually clog the exhaust. Can you try to **** it out with a vacum cleaner (use a crevice tool) Or, pull the dryer out from the wall, disconnect the hose, try to **** it that way. Maybe you can reach it with your hand and gete it. It may have been blown into the exhaust ... check it out

It goes without saying ... unplug the thing before you start this process.

I hope this helps you

DRYER GENERAL ELECTRIC SUPER CAPACITY. APPARENTLY IT IS WORKING BECAUSE IT HEAT BUT THE CLOTHES ARE WET


Hello,

A leading cause of poor drying results in that type of dryer is lint build up in the blower/lint filter housing. That build up will restrict air flow through the dryer causing very long dry times. To repair that the front panel would need to be removed and clean all the lint build up from that housing and blower wheel area.

To remove the front panel DISCONNECT POWER TO THE DRYER, on the bottom of the dryer inside of the door rim will be 2 phillips headed screws,remove those and lift off the top. At the top corners where the front panel connects to the cabinet will be 2 more phillips headed screws remove those and the front panel will pull off and out of the way. With the front panel off the blower housing will be in the lower left side clean lint from it and also the sure to clean all the lint from the lint filter housing which will be attached to the back side of the front panel. In addation to cleaning that area be sure to check and clean the exhaust duct tube as well.

The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?


Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    Shut off after pulling out the lint catcher. It had some BB's that fell down the shoot. Then shut off. Will not restart. Is there a safety switch that may have tripped (fire safety)


    if the dryer was running and you pulled out the lint filter most likely all the lint got removed and jammed the blower wheel.unplug it,remove the vent line and the back panel,then remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out.i'm assuming this is a whirlpool or kenmore,you could have cooked the thermal fuse also,it's a white piece next to the duct,it has two wires going to it and the part number is 3392519,check it with a meter,you have to pull at least one wire off when you read it out to get the true reading,vac out the duct and all the lint,if the vent line is long,blow it out with a leaf blower,all the lint will blow outside through the outside vent,then you can remove the front and vac out all the lint in the cabinet and clean off the motor.good luck

    Lights turn on but dryer wont start


    The problem is likely a blown thermal fuse. Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the front left bottom of the dryer cabinet if the dryer has the lint filter on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located on the top of the cabinet.

    Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

    Let us know if the problem is not addressed above but indicate the exact model number of the machine for further advice.

    Brand new dryer. **** went down lint filter area


    You may have to remove the front panel to enter the air passages and blower fan. Try feeding a vacuum cleaner hose (remove the metal hose end) into the area behind the filter to see if can pick up whatever dropped into it. Hope this helps!

    Dropped pen into lint trap. Now Dryer makes a screeching noise.


    The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.

    Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.

    A clothespin was dropped down lint filter chute, how can I remove the pin?


    Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! You will need to remove the two screw at the lint filter. Now you will need to remove the rear panel of the dryer. Looking at the dryer from the rear with the back off, you will see the lint screen housing on the left side. There are 4) 5/16" screws holding that on. remove those screws and you should be able to pull the housing away from the bulkhead enough to reach the close pin. If the housing does not move far enough, you will ned to raise the top panel up to give the housing more room to move.
    I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.
    Please rate my respons so that I will see how I am doing.

    Thanks,
