    My Samsung Dryer starts for about 7 seconds the stops with a( "Upside down F" 5 ) err

    Model Number: DV218AEBXAA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    My Samsung Dryer starts for about 5 seconds the stops with a (Upside down F)5 error code..Samsung Customer service says it's a LINT sensor but it's very clean and it keeps stopping..I'm baffled!!

    I am assuming that it does produce heat when it runs,

    I cannot find any tech info on this unit so the below is just a guess.

    Unplug the unit and disconnect it from the vent system.
    Now try a run.
    If it now dries OK odds are the vent system needs checking/cleaning.
    Be sure to check that the louvers on the outside of the house open correctly.

    If you do not want any lint in the house.
    Take a pair of pantyhose.
    Put one leg into the other and then attach this to the dryer's vent.
    Leave enough room so the pantyhose can balloon out like a windsock.

    Both the above will let you check the temperature and the air flow.

    Note: The above is not recommended for gas dryers due to carbon monoxide concerns.
