Samsung Front Load Dryer, no heat!
« on: September 08, 2013, 08:36:30 PM »
I have an Electric Samsung Front load dryer model #DV229AEG/XAC..it just stopped producing heat but still continues to tumble. I have checked the heater coil and i'm getting continuity. What are some other things that I could check that might help me troubleshoot the problem?? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!!

Check the high limit thermostats/thermal fuses for continuity.
If they are good you will have continuity.

Not familiar with that model, but you should be able to find the thermostats on the heater housing and/or blower housing.

Here is a parts list for your model so you can see what the thermostats look like.

Just to eliminate it as a problem, take the cover off of where the cord attaches and make sure you have 220 volts.

You also have a thermistor and a thermal fuse on the back side of the blower housing can't even see them have to take the whol front off and drum to get to them
