I have misplaced my manual. I have a Samsung Moisture Sensor dryer. the power works but the it wont tumble. Model #DV400EWHDWR/AA SERIAL # Y6915AEFB00979F. PLEASE HELP.


Samsung has the manual and a trouble-shooting guide on the product support page: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/electric-dryers-dv400ewhd . The direct link to the manual is currently http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201501/20150120165209818/HUDSON_DRY_DV456_DC68-03170A-09_AA.pdf .

Usually if the drum won't tumble, the problem is with the belt, the drum rollers, bearings or shaft that the connect the drum to the motor or the motor.

Can you turn the drum by hand easily? Then look closely at the belt. Replace it if it is damaged. If the drum won't turn, disconnect the belt and check if the drum turns. If it doesn't, check the drum support rollers for wear. Replace all of the support bearings at once if any are faulty. Check the support rollers and shaft at the back of the drum for damage. If you hear a lot of noise as you turn the drum, then the bearings are possibly bad. Check that the plastic slides that stabilize the front of the drum are fine.

Finally check the motor. Replace this if it is faulty. To see a parts diagram and price lists for any parts, see http://www.appliancepartspros.com/parts-for-samsung-dv400ewhdwr-aa-0001.html . Other sites also have the parts for the dryer.

I hope this helps.

Drum dose not turn.


sounds like the belt or motor, need to take it apart, the belt should be in the middle of drum if it is then more the likely it is the motor, you can disconnect belt pug dryer in and see if the motor spins, there may be a reset on the motor, if so it is located where the wire come in. Here is a website that that will help with the cabinet removal and some other things that could cause the problem:

ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE


Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
