My Samsung DV337 Dryer also runs for a short amount of time and then stops. I'm getting a code that looks like an upside down F, followed by an o. I can't find this code in any service manual...

I just encountered the identical situation, after putting a multimeter to all the sensors it turned out that the thermistor was bad. I replaced the thermistor part # DC32-00007A and it eliminated the problem. You will have to remove the top and front of the unit to reach it. It's the sensor on the right in the picture.8_20_2012_10_24_55_pm.jpg

How remove front panel of frig gas dryer faqg7077kw

Hello there:
Here is how to disasseble the dryer
White/Westinghouse - Frigidaire style dryers- How to take apart....

White/Westinghouse, Frigidaire style dryers ( some 417.######## Kenmore dryers ) - How to take apart:
Disconnect power first In order to test and effect repairs on any product, you must be able to disassemble and reassemble the appliance. So lets start with disassembly on this dryer. Unplug the dryer. Get the top up by pushing in on 2 clips on either side as shown in this picture. We need to remove the front of the dryer next. There are 2 or 4 screws inside at the top on most of the older dryers that we need to remove. Once the screws are removed, you can pull forward on the front and lift the complete front off the 2 clips on the bottom of the dryer. Unplug the door switch wires and set the front aside.

if you need to further dissassemble it follow the next steps
Next step in disassembly is to remove the belt from the idler and the motor pulley. This is done at the rear of the dryer. Remove the 2 screws holding the inspection plate on the left rear of the dryer. Remove the plate. Look carefully at how the belt threads around the motor pulley and idler pulley so you can replace it. Remove the belt from the motor pulley. Return to the front of the dryer, grasp the belt in one hand and the front of the drum in the other hand. Lift up on the rear of the drum and pull forward with the other hand. There is a ball on the rear of the drum that rides in a socket located in the center of the back of the dryer. You are lifting the knob up and out of the socket. Look in the center of this picture for the socket. You have taken the dryer far enough apart at this point so that you can accomplish any repairs needed on this style dryer. It is not necessary to go this far for all repairs, but if you need to disassemble, you have the information.

Kenmore dryer gets really hot on top of the dryer, not while clothes are drying but when finished, kinda scary?

Remember heat rises. However if it burns your hand or you can smell something you need to unplug the power to it asap. Most of them come with a one year in home service repair. It takes a while the heating elements to get hot in the dryer so that's probably why it seems its getting hot on top after the clothes have been in for a while.

Power cord hook up

Hi Jay
Middle terminal is White and goes to the "L" shaped prong
Red and Black go to the Flat prongs (Doesn't matter which)
Round prong to cabinet Ground.
There may be a strap from the White lug to the cabinet. This must be removed for the 4 prong plug arrangment.

Dryer heats but doesn't dry

Sounds like it is only heating on "low". The problem is most likely a thermal limit switch/thermostat which is bad.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.

First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Sorry, I can't help you. This is the area for asking questions about computer monitors, not washing machines. You clicked the wrong link.
Look at the top of the page, click the Westinghouse link and then on washing machine. Enter your question there.
