I have samsung dv220aew/xaa dryer, that gets too hot and kicks code HE. New element, thermistor and cleaned thoroughly. Gets hot, codes on all heat settings. Any ideas?


DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

My Kenmore Elite Model# 110.63932101, is not heating. Will run but no heat. This happened once before and I thoroughly cleaned out all the vents, etc and it began to heat. The very next use, no heat again....


Take your vent pipe off at the dryer and see it it heats if it does
it is your outide vend stoped up. If it don't heat, check all fuses,
thermastats, cutoff fuse on heat box and the heating element.
Did you clean around the blower? Hope this helps. If you removed any wires are they connected correctly?

My dryer doesn't heat up


inspect and clean the exhaust venting system thoroughly and try it again. A moister sensor detects lint build up and puts the heat into a check mode.

Dryer not heating.


First clean out the exhaust vent tubing entirely and then try it. It may heat up very hot if thoroughly cleaned out. A moister sensor detects any lint build up and put the burner into a check mode that prevents home fires in the exhaust vents

Dryer won't heat


Check the exhaust vents for any build up of lint inside
A moister sensor detects this and will keep the heat off until it is cleaned thoroughly

Dryer is not heating up


Try this first. Open all exhaust vents and clean them thoroughly. Any lint build up will cause the moister sensor to keep the heat off. This is a fail safe sensor to prevent fires in the vent work

The dryer is not getting hot


check the exhaust vents thoroughly. If full of lint the moister sensor will keep the burner off at all times you use this dryer. If the vents are clean and it still will not heat replace the moister sensor and replace the spark ignitor at the same time

Frigidare electric dryer not heating properly


Longer dry times and improper heating can be attributed to poor dryer vent ducting. The first thing you need to check is the ventilation ducting to ensure that it is not kinked or clogged. Poor air flow is the number one cause of dryer failures. Not to mention it can cause fires due to lint backing up inside the dryer. This can cause an "electrical" smell a lot of people complain about. If lint accumulates on the heating element it will smolder and burn. It is often reported that you should clean your ducting twice per year. I recommend the ducting be checked (this means inspected to see if it needs cleaning) thoroughly about once per season. That's 4 times per year. If you've never cleaned the ducting, or your dryer is pushed all the way up against the wall causing the ducting to become kinked, you will have air flow problems. One way in determining air flow is to remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and start the dryer with a load to see if it heats better. The air flow coming out of the back of the dryer should be forceful and gradually warm up to about 140 degrees. If the air flow is weak, you may have a clog inside the air baffle of the dryer (this is where the lint screen slides into). If the air flow is good, reattach the dryer hose and check at the output of the dryer vent as it exits your home. If the air flow is weak or non-existent then you know you have a clog in the vent line somewhere. Periodic cleaning will go a long way towards preventing future clogs. Dryer vent rule of thumb: The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the vent line, the BETTER. Everywhere you have a bend or kink is an area where you will create potential collection points for lint. Poor dryer maintenance is also one of the frequent causes of house fires. In addition, if the dryer vent runs into an attic, or under a crawl space, this can cause heating problems due to frequent clogs (remember the shorter and straighter rule). I would recommend a little routine inspection and maintenance before assuming you have a part failing. Leaving a dryer in a poorly ventilated condition will eventually lead to failure of the heating circuits. If you have checked the dyrer thoroughly and have no ventilation problems, we can take it from there to see if you have a component starting to fail on you. Please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
