There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

My samsung DV331AER/XAA 02 clothes dryer will power on but won't dry

Hello Sunny;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

1.) Poor air flow:
If your dryer is plugged up with lint it will not heat. In the back of your dryer is a air distribution manifold. It is elongated and round at the bottom. There are just a couple of screws holding it on. Unplug your unit, remove the manifold, usually at the bottom is where it is plugged. Also clean around the blower wheel.

2.) Bad door switch - If the drum is not turning.
If you hear a clicking sound when you push on the plunger the switch is good. If not:
Remove the top cover. There are two clips in the back, one on the right and one on the left. Using a spatula or thin blade push in to release, then slide the cover back. You should be able to see the door switch. Remove the two wires from the switch. With a multi-meter set on the lowest ohms check the switch. If you get a reading other that '0' the switch.

Part #: DC64-00828A - Cost: $16.00

3.) Thermostats:
This is located inside the dryer on the side of the electric heater assembly. You must ohm this out as above.
Part #: DC47-00018A - Cost: $21.00
Part #: DC96-00887A - Cost: $11.00


4.) Bad heater element.
Ohm this out as the above.
Part #: DC47-00019A - Cost: $65.00

5.) Bad motor drive pulley contact switch - If the drum is not turning.
Part #: 3405-001077 - Cost: $7.00
Ohm this out as well while holding the button in. Once again should read '0' if good.

Samsung gas dryer dv331 will power up but won't run. The lights blink and the unit clicks one but won't start.

Try spinning the drum by hand. If it's really loose, then you need a new belt. I recommend getting this done by a professional, or you watch a youtube video. It takes a standard whirlpool belt.

My samsung dryer model no DV328AEWXAA has suddenly lost it heat .it just blowscold air

Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape and running the dryer to check to see if the element is red or not,
or with an ohm meter check the two terminals of the thermostat/thermister
after you have removed the wires, the thermostat/thermistor should have/show continuity across the terminals.
If the coil heats up, or the thermostat/thermistor shows an open circut
then replace the thermostat/thermistor as it is defective.
If it overheats the dryer will not operate properly.
It's located on the blower housing.
It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
You can test it with an Ohm meter/continuity checker, if no continuity,
replace it)
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.
