I have a Samsung dv220aew xaa dryer that does not produce heat. I've replaced the heating element, the thermistor, and the thermostats with the problem remaining, what could be the problem?


ARE U GETTING THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF VOLTAGE AT THE CONNECTION,? i VE SEEN IN SOME CASES WHERE THE MACHINE ONLY GETTING 120 AND WILL RUN BUT NOT CREATE MUCH HEAT? THE DRYER USES 120 TO RUN THE CYCLE BUT NEEDS A FULL 220 FOR THE HEAT CYCLE TO WORK, THUS IF UR MISSING VOLTAGE IT WILL NOT HEAT? ANOTHER CULPRIT COULD BE A BAD TIMER STUCK ON COOL DOWN OR FLUFF CYCLE AND WILL PRODUCE NO HEAT?

Dryer will not stop running


If the start switch is stuck or the start knob is stuck in the start position the dryer will run when the door is closed, and the timer is at at a time setting. if you have no heat you might need a heating element or your unit might have a thermal fuse that would need replacing.

My dryer will not heat up


hi friend,
Step 1 The most common cause of a dryer not heating is that the air duct gets clogged. This can cause a fire and should be cleaned out about once every couple of months. Take the air duct off from behind the dryer with a screwdriver and take the other end off near where it goes into the wall. Run a hose through the air duct until all the junk and lint from inside gets out. Let it sit in the sun for about an hour to dry then hook it back up. Try the dryer out to see if it heats again.
  • Step 2dryerrepair_thumb.jpg Dryer thermostat The dryer's thermostat can also be the cause of it not heating. Locate your dryer's thermostat and take it out with a screwdriver. Take your multimeter and set it to the resistance setting. Put one lead on each terminal. You should get a reading of 0, or -1, which means infinity. Any other reading than this means the dryer's thermostat is bad.
  • Step 3dryerheatingelement_thumb.jpg Next, test your dryer's heating element. Heating elements cary in what they look like but you should see some sort of coil of wire like a toaster. You can do a search online for your dryer's heating element. Once again, set your multimeter to resistance and take the heating element out. Put one lead of the multimeter onto each terminal of the heating element. You want a reading that is not 0 or -1. If you get a 0 or -1 your dryer's heating element is bad.

    • Try walking into your local hardware store and asking them if you get stuck.
    • Make sure you un[plug the dryer before you start to fix or repair it.

    My dryer runs but will not heat. The timer sometimes gets stuck.


    If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:


    Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

    Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

    Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

    Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

    Dryer element stays warm


    If it heats w/ the timer in off position whenever plugged in the the element is shorting to ground, its most likely due to either a broken coil or a cracked insulator. If heating w/ timer set for drying but motor is not running, the heat circuit thru the centrifugal/start switch on the motor is stuck closed.

    Dryer won't shut off at end of cycle


    First of all if you want heat it's probably a burnt up thermal fuse due to lack of air to the dryer. But if the timer is getting stuck you'll just have to replace the timer. Theres no way of fixing the timer just replace it and then replace the thermal fuse (it's located on the back of the dryer) and you should be up and running also have the ducting cleaned out.

    Please remember to unplug the dryer before working on it.

    Hope this helps

    Roper dryer, timer doesn't time out and not heating up?


    Dryer will run forever if it doesnt heat up, Dryer has to heat up and thermostat has to get hot and open to start the timer. Odds are rally great, it is your heating element.
