Question about Samsung Dryers

1 Answer

The main on-off switch is not working. For the last few days, I had to play around with it to finally have the dryer turn on, but now it's completely inactive. Is there an easy way to check and fix this? I suspect some connection is broken due to the vibrations generated by the washer nearby...

My dryer turns on but wont run


There are several bimetallic heat sensor switches in a dryer. Check them first, then the continuity of the door switch, then the control unit ( I usually get mine rebuilt), finally the motor as a last resort.

How to Solve : Kenmore Dryer shuts off by itself!


I have heard of several cases where the Kenmore dryer completely shuts off by itself after a few minutes.
Here is a couple of things to check :

Door switch
If the door switch is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. It's a possibility that the heat would render the contacts defective. You can put a jumper wire across the switch and see if it helps.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that turns off the dryer if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is around an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

2001lincoln towncar has no tail or running lights but has headlights


I had the same scenario with the taillight and the license plate light that wouldn’t come on. Brake light, emergency light, left signal light, right signal light, and reverse light are all working!!!!! I was limited to drive during the day only for the last two months, so I had to be home before sun set, and my wife loved it actually ;)…..First you need to check all the fuses inside the car as well as the distribution box under the hood, then check the all light bulbs to see if there is any burn light, check the main switch light inside, and if everything turn okay. Your last option is the LCM Lighting Control Module under the dashboard, it cost around $500, but get a used one from the junkyard, it may cost you around $150. Finally, my driving isn’t limited no more.

Hotpoint WT960 Fault F-07 heater relay


A few reasons for this, faulty heater, broken wire, faulty pressure switch or faulty main control board (the heater relay is on the main control board).

There is no reset for this.
Unplug the appliance and take the rear cover off.

Check the wiring to the heater and thermostat. Give the wires a good tug as they can break internally and look ok.
If you have a multimeter, test the heater, it should read around 25 ohms.
Take the top off the appliance, locate the pressure switch (has a thin tube on it), give it a few good taps with your screwdriver handle.
Finally, take the main control board out (bottom left when viewed from the rear) and one plug at a time, take them off, clean and tighten them, plug them back on.
If everything checks out ok, then it's likely the main control board is at fault.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

I had the same problem on my SA-HT900 after my three year old played around with it. I switched off the DVD and turned off the mains completely. When I switched the mains on again, the DVD just started working. Hope it works for you.

Dryer screen shows 8.8. when I go to dry a load of clothes and won't work


We had the same problem - you might try and hit the panel with a blow dryer to heat it up if it's in a cold garage - it may buy you some more time - It took mine 2 yrs to go out completely - when it finally did - I took out the curcuit board and found dark discoloration around the cluster of four resistors - after reading dozens of posts from multiple sites, decided to replace those four resistors and the three main capacitors in the same area just to cover all bases. And for only a few bucks - it works like new again!!! A service call could cost you @$300 - $500 from what other are saying! eek if that's really the case!

My dryer doens't start up


Depends on if you can hear any noise when you hit the start button or turn the knob. If there is a hum or some sound then could be belt or motor problems. If there is no sound dead, then you are checking the right area, there are kill switches in different places on dryers. one is like you checked the door switch, and another may be in back when you open the cover to check. Maybe fallen out of place. These sw. are for your safety and sometimes they malfunction. Hope this help!
