    Samsung Dryer Keeps Burning out the element

    Model Number: DV36J4000EW/A3
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hello All,

    Rant:
    I am baffled!! I have replaced the element in this dryer twice in the last few weeks. The second time, which was yesterday, in addition to the DC47-00019A Dryer Heating Element, I also replaced the DC47-00016A Thermal Fuse, DC47-00018A Thermal Cut-off fuse and the DC96-00887A Thermal Fuse. The element I took out of the dryer yesterday was visibly darkened, not quite burnt but only about a week old and only heated one load before burning out. After putting in the new parts, listed above, the dryer only heated for about half a load. I have read many threads on this and other forums but cannot find anything like my issue. I have checked the vent, it is clear. I used a vacuum to clean out all dust/lint from everywhere that I could find, focusing on the exhaust and lint trap. There is no other visible or noticeable damage to any wires or other parts.

    Issue:
    Samsung Dryer not Heating Up

    What I have tried:
    Replacing the following parts twice in two weeks. DC47-00019A Dryer Heating Element, DC47-00016A Thermal Fuse, DC47-00018A Thermal Cut-off fuse and the DC96-00887A Thermal Fuse

    Questions:
    Is there another sensor?
    What other reasons would cause the element to burn out so fast?
    Is there still hope for this dryer?
    Should I replace the whole dryer and see if that works?


    My family and I appreciate your time on this!

    I have not replaced the small sensor next the the thermal fuse located on the rear of the exhaust fan housing. What is that part?

    Does everything look right in the pics i provided?
