Samsung Dryer dv203aes/xac will not heat. Drum is rotating and lint was cleared from exhaust.


Check the following:
1. Does it have 220 volts (yes it runs, but dryers run on 110 volts)?
2. Check the heating element and the safety thermostats located on the heat element canister. Low air flow from any restriction like lint build up or mashed ducting or blocked air exhaust vent cap can either trip the safety stats or burn out the element. Clean dryer and exhaust ducting thoroughly and replace bad parts before placing back in service. Poor air flow is the number one problem with "No Heat" dryer issues.

Why does the dryer take an hour and a half to dry a load of clothes


GE dryers usually have more than one heating element. Your machine probably has one failed heater and one good heater. The dryer will not get hot enough with only one heater working.

Unplug the machine! Check the heaters for continuity with a multimeter and replace if no continuity.

If the heaters are good, a faulty operating thermostat can also cause this symptom. It can turn the heaters off before the machine reaches the normal operating temperature.

Poor air flow can also contribute to slow drying. Check for lint buildup blocking airflow inside the machine and the vent duct.

It shuts off before the cloths are dry


Most likely either the lint trap needs to be cleaned out, the exhaust piping needs cleaning or you have faulty heat sensor / circuit breaker.

Be sure to clean the lint trap before every load may even try cleaning it out half way through the cycle too.

Good luck.

The dryer is overheating.


Fresh air is drawn in past the heating element into the drum out through the lint trap and exhausted outside the building. If the dryer protection systems are operating properly they will sense the over temperature and shut off power to the heating element via thermal switches. This will cause the elements to cycle on and off and reduce the drying ability.

Things to check.

First make sure you fill the dryer only about half full of clothes, usually the dryer capacity is around twice the washer capacity for this reason.

Second, make sure your lint trap and exhaust duct work from inside the dryer all the way outside are free from lint build-up. You should clean or have the dryer duct work cleaned either every year or two depending on the amount of drying you do.

Third, suspect is the dryer thermostat stuck in the on position. You may be able to test your drying temperatures by selecting (cold) fluff air setting, then the low setting and so on to see if that's working properly. If you can read electrical drawings, usually the manufacturer includes a diagram inside the control panel for service techs to refer to. You can test the flow of air out of the dryer by removing the hose from the exhaust, it should have a good volume of air when the dryer is running. After hooking the hose back to the exhaust duct work, check outside the building for the same air flow and don't forget to clean any outside flaps that keep the rodents out of the duct work.

Keep your lint low by not over drying your clothes. You will cut down on lint and prolong the life of your clothes! Dryers are one of the simplist appliances to figure out, unless they have complicated electronic control panels.

Good luck!

Frigidaire FEQ332ESO electric dryer: No Heat


There are usually two thermocouples in the dryer. One is somewhere at the front of the machine, under the lint trap, and the other is either right next to the heating element or behind the drum. They are usually a rectangular or diamond-shaped metal plate with a 1/2 inch high by 3/4 inch diameter cylinder on them. There are only two electrical leads on it. Unplug the leads and check with a continuity tester. If there is no continuity, the thermocouple is burned out. The most common cause of this is an obstruction in the exhaust hose at the back of the dryer to outdoors or a tight bend in that hose.

Overheating dryer


blowing when the tube is off usually = dryer fan ok, and is a sign that the duct is blocked past that point,
most commonly there is a blockage in the vent hood, the screen that keeps bugs and rodents from gralling up the exhaust, is also very good for catching any lint that squeezes past the lint filter.
most exterior hoods can rmove the screen for cleaning
any flexible ducting is a likely ara as well, the corrugations make a lint trap
check also that the duct from the heater element into the drum is not dislocated or blocked
