Thread: Samsung Dryer not heating

  1. #1

    Question Samsung Dryer not heating

    Model Number: DV42H5000GW
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    I have a Samsung Dryer that is not heating. Ignitor does not light, Bypassed the Flame sensor and it works fine. Changed the flame sensor and it worked for a week, bypassed it again and it worked. Replace the flame sensor again, and it worked for a week. Bypassed again and it works. So It has to be an issue with flame sensor, but this would be the 3rd one. What else would cause the flame sensor to not register. Could it be the mother board.
    About to toss it, but figured I would ask since it works when bypassed, but can't run it that way.

    First one was through a supply house, was a Whirlpool replacement that was compatible with the Samsung. Second one was online and also a model compatible with Samsung. Both were around $25. Vs 160 for Samsung OEM

    Thought about trying the OEM but did not want to go that route if there was another issue such as the motherboard

    Have you tested the flame sensor for continuity?

    Each one was tested and I get a tone for continuity but changed them out anyway because when it was bypassed the dryer operated, (meaning, the ignitor lit, the bypass was eliminated and flame was produced.). Without it being bypassed the ignitor did not light.
    That is why I thought it could be the mother board.
    Should I check continuity for a reading and not a just the tone?

    This document linked below shows more about how the flame sensor works. I don't know of anything that would cause a flame sensor to fail immediately like you are describing.

    Same here. That why I was wondering if the flame sensors are good and it’s another issue like the motherboard.
