Thread: SAMSUNG Electric Dryer won't heat

    SAMSUNG Electric Dryer won't heat

    Model Number: DV2C6BEW/XAA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    The dryer stopped putting out heat. We checked the heating element, and thermostats for continuity, and they checked out ok. The thermal fuse did not show continuity so we replaced that but still no heat. We reset the circuit breaker, and there is good air flow from the outside vent. What else can it be and how do we check it?

    I'm reading other posts and we didn't disconnect the wires from the thermostats when we checked them. We did take the heating element out though. I saw somewhere that the thermostat wires are soldered on...is this true or is it ok to remove the wires the same as from the heating element?

    Yes the wires are removable. You will need to remove them to do an accurate continuity check. Also, there is another fuse and thermistor over by the blower wheel that you can check. The fuse should have continuity and the thermistor at room temperature should read approximately 10k ohms. If it is far off from that, the sensor will need to be replaced. Let me know what you find.
