Dryer starts then stops. Code flashes on control board.
My Samsung DV306LEW is less than two years old. It starts and then roughly ten seconds later starts beeping and a code comes up on the digital display stating that there is a heater temperature control issue. What can I do to repair this problem? We have contacted the services center and they stated it would cost $285 to look at and work on the issue. This did not include the part price.

Re: Dryer starts then stops. Code flashes on control...
Do you clean the lint filter after each use? If not, please do so now.
Next pull out the dryer and look for kinks or squishing of the big rippled six inch exhaust hose. You can take it off by unscrewing the clamp tht holds it onto the dryer and then clean it out. it may be clogged. You can also go outside to the external vent and check it for a clog.
Another thought is that the WASHER is not spinning enough water out of the clothing so that the dryer gets very hot trying to dry them.
I hope this helps. I'll have alook at the manual if I can locate it while you are doing this. Does it give you a code number?

www.hometips.com/repair-fix/clothes-dryer-stops-and-starts.html Apr 23, 2015 - The dryer's heating element works and the motor runs smoothly, But it... and then running the dryer with nothing inside for a few minutes-if it ...
this fuse usually blows when the dryer gets too too hot. It is there to pop before your dryer starts a fire internally!!! Make sure that your element is good and not sticking (meaning the element popped and stuck to the housing causing a false connection for the coil to run through). if that isn't the problem then make sure your dryer vent in the back is not clogged up and air flow is not blocked!!!
Often constant beeping is an indication that the unit is experiencing
a possible error. I under you have tried resetting the dryer by flipping the
breaker. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes before turning on the
unit. If the beeping continues, then the appliance could be experiencing a
communication issue with the control board or a potential wiring failure. I
would recommend connecting with a qualified appliance repairman to proceed
PF error means power failure which is generally
caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging
the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs
replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
There is a thermal shutoff on the heating assemly that will turn off the dryer heat. Also, we just experienced a fire in ours due to lint build up in the body of the dryer even though we vacuumed out the lint trap on a regular basis. To look in this area, you have to take the top off the dryer and then the front. You can look by pulling out the dryer outlet connection and a flashlight. Make sure to put it back in correctly though to avoid a fire.
F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.
Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:
* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds. * Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet. * Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display. * Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.
The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.
The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...
Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components. When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time. Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer. Reassemble and test the washer.
The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU. The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate. Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU. There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed. The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.
I have the same problem..really disappointed in this product. I bought mine in 07 as well..I found that if i hold all the buttons down and then hit start it (Sometimes starts), but after it starts it turns off after 10 seconds.
