Question about Dryers
Their are various reasons why a dryer won't heat correctly. We know the heat source is there because it does work. Something else must be happening. A simple air restriction can cause the dryer heat to build rapidly instead of gently flowing through the clothes and out the vent.
Stagnated air builds quickly causing the control on the blower housing to shut down the heating element. We want to make sure our vent to outside is open. We want to check the filter and clean that. Before we replace any parts we need to make sure the timer or electronic control is working and the electrical source is on point.

If your element is operating and drawing about 20 amps when on, your problem may be the thermostat (temperature dial) or the moisture sensor (if applicable). My dryer has 2 heating elements.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

It ended up being a easy fix. Our old dryer was working fine and had been ran an hour before I hooked up the new Samsung dryer. Therefore I assumed when the new dryer did not work there had to be something wrong with it. There ended up being nothing wrong with it and it was my dryer vent. It was barley plugged which caused it to not heat up properly. I was told that the new dryers have a lot more sensors on them and its very sensitive about needing a clean vent to vent out the heat. My vent was not very dirty, but it had just enough build up of lent in it, it caused the dryer to not vent properly and it would keep shutting the flame off. Blew it out with my leaf blower and now it heats up and dry quick. I hope this helps

you need to check that for vent hose is not kinked if it is not then remove it from the dryer and see if it work right if it does then the vent tube that goes thourgh the wall has a blockage
