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 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 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.

I have a samsung DV2C6BEW/XAA that turns on and when you press start just sits there and hums ive already checked to see if the belt was attached and it looks good... Any other suggestions?

Try turning the motor or with the picture you have can you start the dryer and observe the motor? It may be the motor humming and not turning. this could be a bad motor, something stuck in the blower wheel or the tub binding somewhere.

My Samsung dryer DV2C6BEW/XAA will only run for 10 minutes then shuts off and wont come back on for 20 minutes and I have no codes

Your dyer has several "overheat" switches or thermostats built in to prevent overheating and possible fire. You will be needing to "tear the whole thing apart" to find the problem. Start with the air ducting. Easy way to check it is to disconnect the hose from the back and see if it still shuts off too soon. If it does not, your vent to the outside is plugged and is causing the problem. If it still happens, you will need to clean the whole machine of accumulated lint by taking it all apart. Big job.
Then try it. If it still misbehaves, you have a bad "fuse" or "switch" inside the back or the bottom. There are as many as 6 on some models. An electrical tester will help you find the "tripped switch".
Be blessed.

I have Samsung-7.3 Cu. Ft. 7-Cycle Electric Dryer-White-DV210AEW/XAA SKU: 9739916 this is my first time using this dryer just got it opened the door to check the dryer and closed the door pushed the power...

i would take the plug panel off the back and make sure you are getting the full 220 volts on the terminal,, (it could be in the cord itsself), if that is not your issue, it might be your main board, since it is new i wouldn't tear into it because it will void the warranty
