Question about Samsung DV448AEE Electric Dryer
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description and my experience, I'd say possibly the belt has come off, thus activating the "kill switch".
I've seen this many, many times...though the belt usually doesn't break it just comes off. Very common for Samsung dryers for whatever reason.
**Unplug the unit before proceeding...safety first**...
The good news is if it's accessible from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,
if it's not you'll need to go from the front...do-able just a little more involved, let me know.
Once in the back the belt should look like this when routed properly, with the "V" grooves towards the drum and motor pulley.
Hope that moves you forward...or even better, fixed up.
Let me know what you find. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro.
I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.
