Samsung DV448AEP/XAC won't run
« on: January 09, 2014, 03:42:12 PM »
Hi All, this dryer turns on with no errors, can choose a cycle but when pressing start nothing happens. I have checked the belt as I know it's a common problem and it is fine.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Did you check the door switch?

Yes it's not the switch, the display will change to "drying" as if it's running but nothing happens.

Anybody else have any ideas on what I could check or access to a service manual?

Thanks
Vince

Pop the top, then take the front off. Check the thermal fuses.

Thanks Schleven, it was a thermal fuse on the exhaust.

Good job getting it fixed.  You might want to make sure that the dryer vent and ductwork is not clogged with lint to prevent another problem with the fuse.

Schleven, the vent and duct work were both in great shape there was no obstructions. Dryer is working great now. Thanks again.

Is this the one on the blower housing?
