How do i change the element on a samsung dryer


Hello.

When the dryer just isn't getting your clothes dry anymore, the culprit is usually the heating element. The dryer part may look intimidating, but you can replace the heating element.

Step by step instructions

TOOLS NEEDED New heating element,Screwdriver, Needle-nose pliers.

1 Unplug the dryer from the wall before starting. Find the dryer heating element cabinet. For most dryers this is located in the back, however it can be in the front. Find the compartment on the dryer.
2 Remove the screws or clips to get into the compartment to expose the heating element and wires. Use a needlenose pliers to carefully remove the element wires.
3 Detach the can shaped object that may cover the heating element. Tip the can backward to slip it off the hooks holding it in place. Some models place the heating element with the can, while others provide easier access to it.
4 Unscrew the screws holding the element in place and pull it out.
5 Put the new element in place, and replace the screws to secure it in the dryer. Put the can back in place and connect the element wires before putting on the cabinet cover.
6 Run the dryer on fluff with no heat, and go outside to make sure enough air is getting through the vent system.
7 Break the new heating element in by running your dryer on high heat for 10 minutes without any clothes in the dryer. This cleans oily residue off the element and keep the clothes from getting smoky.

Thanks.

The dryer isnt putting out any heat but is running any suggestions?


Yep, your heating element broke. If you open up the back of the dryer you will see what look like springs surrounding the drum. Follow the springs until you find the break. Replace the element. Hope this Helps.

We just moved our whirlpool duet dryer to a new house and now the dryer is not heating. Any suggestions?


the new house that you put a dryer have an power? check all fuse in the plug or in your main outlet, or your unit is with light and running but not heating? check the motor if running? if running check the back of your unit when you see the exhaust pipe and clean it,and the filter inside the dryer clean it,if this one is ok.the sensor of your dryer is remove due to vibration coz of transfering or the heater is totally wort out,check the back of unit and look when place the heater?some model is easy to remove the heating at the back,just using screw driver,and easy to check,if the heater is continious coil is is ok,if split or broken repalce the new one,carefully to remove and carefully to return,make sure is the unit is in unplug before anything to do.

Still more of the same


The exhaust is clogged or restricted holding too much heat in the exhaust housing or the limit t-stat has gone bad. This is the t-stat sitting next to the thermal fuse. Good luck.

Turns on but no heat


Looking up the model number it says it's an electric dryer.

My professional opinion is that since it is a new dryer and it did work for a while, more than likely your dryer venting is restricted and just enough to cause your thermal fuse to blow in the new dryer. This is a very common problem with electric dryers. Since dryers put out a substantial amount of lint, it is usually moist and it sticks to the walls of the vents eventually they need cleaned out.

Clean your dryer venting, replace your thermal fuse, make sure you don't crush your dryer vent when you put it back in place and I'm sure you'll be back in business.

I put a new heater in dryer. but still no heat


I can suggest that you trace the wires from the heating element back to the control timer, There may be a heavy duty relay that turns the heating element on and the contacts could be burned not making contact or the relay coil could be bad this would cause the heating coils not to heat. Also some dryers had these contacts built into the control, If when you press the button to start the dryer and you hear the relay click on it should stay on until you open the door or shut the dryer off, If it is staying on then you may have a bad relay. Also check your fuses as the element runs on 220 and the motors run on 110. If the fuse that is bad is other than the side running your motor you will get no heat.

Dryer has no heat on any setting after house fuse blew.


We got the problem with our dryer figured out. After checking possible solutions on-line, we checked the power going into the dryer with a ohm tester and discovered we weren't getting full power that we expected. Just after changing the fuses in the house the first time we heard a snap sound but the fuses appeared to be fine, but no heat to the dryer. When we discovered we weren't getting full power we used the ohm tester to test the fuses indiviually and discovered one of the fuses were bad. Put in a new fuse and wala! the dryer is putting out heat. Thank you so much for the service you provide to "do-it-yourselfers" like us!

No heat


mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.
