Samsung Front Load Dryer is not getting hot

We waited a little to long to clean the exhaust but once we did it quit getting hot? Is there a fuse or easy fix to get the heating element to work again?

SOURCE: Clothes not drying

A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

SOURCE: Dryer suddenly does not produce hot air

have the exact same problem, just over 1 year old no heat! first off my duct work under my floor is like a snake and is not a straight shot out of the house. I beleive this caused a ristriction in the venting because dyer seemed to be running hotter them normal. I took the top off the dryer and pulled the vent tube out of the bottom of the dryer. To my surprise found a three inch layer of lint on the bottom of the machine and also on the heating coil. After cleaning out all the lint i took a volt meter to the two wires that come down to the heater. started the dryer and found i had 220volts at the heater indicating the heater is out, found one on ebay for about 50 bucks. will be installing this weekend and will let you know how it works.

This is for the ELECTRIC MODEL Only. I have the DV448AEPl and had the same problem... I cleaned all of the lint from every nook and cranny and ordered a "repair kit" from Sears (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Samsung-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-DV448AEPXAA/1482/0151200?searchedModel=dv448&blt=) there is even a blow up of the parts there - I ordered part numbers , DC47-00015A, thermostat, DC47-00018A - thermostat and DC47-00019A - dryer heater. The heater is relatively easy to get to if your not squeamish about removing some screws and taking the front off the dryer. Once the front is off you can clean even more lint from the dryer. Remove the heater unit by unscrewing the single screw accessed from the front of the dryer and then disconnecting all of the connectors.
Lastly - once I took the heater assembly out I found that a dime had made its way into the heater coil and was shorting it out... Probably could have got by by just removing the dime and cleaning the coil but I figured that since I was elbow deep in the thing I might as well clean it all up and install the new parts.... Cost of parts was about $80.00 w/shipping. Cost of a repairman to knock on my door here is $150 so I came out ahead on this one... Good luck.

I think your heating element is burned out. You can find parts at repairclinic.com

If you remove the element (unplug it first of course) you will be able to tell if it is burned out by looking at the actual heating coils. If there are any breaks in the wire anywhere you know its the problem.

Good luck

My Samsung dryer will only run for 10 seconds


What about outside exhaust is it blocked? Or the exhaust line is blocked by animal/ sox. Etc. Dryer is protecting itself from burning up next your thermal fuse will go. Make sure that you go out and feel the exhaust coming out in full force

The dryer gets hot but doesn't dry the laundry. gas and exhaust are all connected properly. Lint tray is cleaned after each load.


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.

The dryer has no heat


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Select the heat setting other than Air Fluff.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Ok, i would also pull the blower assembly and, check it for clog's as well. clean out the entire exhaust hose as well. if this doesn't stop the shut down, you will need to replace the hi limit thermostat and (dryness)sensor(if equipped) as well.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.


You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.
