Samsung DV218AEB/XAA won't heat.heat sensor on the control board?

Won't heat...ducting is clean heat sensor on the control board above the drum looks like the black wire got a little hot as there looks to be some melting around the terminal plug (would this cause no heat?) how do I check to see if it is still functional? If that is not the problem...what are the ohm values for the two thermostats and the heater element? Any idea on the cost of these parts for this particular dryer: Control board thermostats heater element Thank you in advance for any and all help.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

I own a Samsung dryer model DV218AEB/XAA. In both the sensor and timed cycles it shuts off early and goes dead for about 30 minutes before it comes back to life and the load can be restarted, only to

I have a good idea that it may be the following;

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.

The Gas Dryer no longer appears to have gas supply although the supply pipe is still attached to the unit. When you switch the dryer on, the drum turns as normal but the gas supply does not ignite and...

The first thing I would do is see if power is getting to the gas assembly. If I could not get any power going to the assembly I would check the duct fuse to see if it has continuity.If it was good I would check the control thermostat for continuity. If I am getting power to the gas assembly I check the flame sensor, if it is open then the ignitor won't glow and you will have no heat. If the sensor is good I would check the ignitor , if open you would have no heat. If that dryer works a little bit but then stops heating then that is a sign of old weak solenoids.
If that duct fuse is blown clean out the blower housing
