I had the same issue with a Samsung DV209AEW/XAA.

What I found was the belt had come off and the spring on the drum belt pully had come off.

After I disassembled the whole top and front to figure out I could not access what I needed from there I discovered I needed to enter in from the vent is.

Anyway here is some info:

Rear Access:

1) On the back where the Vent comes out you have 4 total screws. 3 of them are on the outside edge and the fourth is more of a middle mount that holds the tube to this bracket. Remove all four screws now you can lift and lean this plate to remove it.

2) This will also free up the vent tube and it can be pulled and cleaned also if you desire.

3) With these items out of the way you can now access the pulley for the belt and other items.

Have you tried turning the drum by hand if it moves real easy then belt might have slipped off the pulley,,or broke.

there is also a chance that one of the thermal fuses has gone bad.

to check the belt you need to remove the lid by taking the two screws out of the back and slide the lid off and look at the belt,if it has come off then you need to remove the front panel and reattach the belt to the pulley there is a kill switch in the cabinet near the motor that gets tripped if the belt comes off the pulley or breaks.

if the belt is good then you may need to change the main control board.if the unit is under warranty then set it up for service.

Dryer heats for maybe 1 minute then stops. Samsung Model DV328AGW/XAA


In the rear of the dryer is a thermal limiter which will kick in when the exhaust temp is too high and can cause a fire. One link will show what the limiter looks like and the other will show how to commonly get to the limiter. Your mileage may vary.
