    Samsung dryer shutting off

    Model Number: DV456EWHDWR/AA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    My Samsung dryer will not stay running for longer than 3 seconds! Can someone help? I've cleaned out the small amount of lent build up in the duct and it worked for a day and now it s back to shutting off again.

    Can you restart it right away or do you have to wait several minutes before it will restart?

    If you have to wait, it points to a motor problem.
    The motor is overheating for some reason. It then trips it's internal thermal protect and must cool down for the protect to reset.

    Yes that's exactly what it does!

    Is that an expensive fix?

    Depends what you consider expensive.

    The motor is probably around $150.00 to $200.00

    Try rotating the drum in the correct direction. Could be that there is t5oo much drag on it.
    It should turn fairly easily.
    Youmay want to try this on a couple other units to get a feel for it.

    If there is too much drag it could be a bad support wheel or a bad seal.

    It turned out to be the motor was getting too hot and shutting down. I had a local guy change out the motor he had with a used one and it works perfect. Thx for the help!
