Thread: Samsung dryer stops mid cycle after replacing element

    Question Samsung dryer stops mid cycle after replacing element

    Model Number: Dv218aew/xaa
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    My Samsung dryer wasn't heating up so I replaced the heating element and the two little things attacked to it. Now that it's put together again, it heats up but displays the time left at 1 minute and ends. It works on timed cycle but that makes me nervous lol. I bought a twelve foot vent cleaning brush and cleaned the best I could, the outside vent is on the roof so I reached probably up to the attic.

    Sounds like the moisture sensor is bad. When sensor drying (not timed dry) there is a moisture sensor that detects when clothes are dry by measuring the air, and shuts off the heat when the air is dry.
