My dryer will not dry my clothes completely. Could this be the thrimistor. What if any other part cause this. Thanks, hilda
For model number DV328AEW
Hello Hilda, Thank you for your inquiry. This is one of the possible parts that could cause this issue. I would also check the heating element, the blower wheel, the thermostat, and the guide/moisture sensor. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. I would also make sure the lint filter and vents are clear of debris. Hope this helps!

At 77degrees my ohm reading is 985. If this is ok. What else could be blowing my thermal fuse? The exhaust is clear. Tube and outlet from house are new. My last thermal fuse only lasted about 5 loads.
For model number Dv448aep/xaa
Hello Jason,Thank you for contacting us. At 77 degrees it should read 10,000 ohms. 985 is pretty low and woudl be considered defective. When replacing the thermister it is a good idea to replace the fuse at the same time. When one goes it normally blows the other so we recommend changing them together. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

I have a Samsung dv350agp/xaa that turns on and counts down but is not turning nor is the motor on it was working until i put it on wrinkle care but it did not have the water hook up. It started on it with 20 minutes and it went to 17 min then turned off i tried to go back to normal dry but it just started and counting down
For model number dv350agp/xaa
Hello Pastor, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the Main Control Board, PartSelect Number PS4215865. The board controls the operations of the appliance and may need to be replaced. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

For model number dv365etbgwr/a3
Hi Eduardo, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is not shutting off by itself, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the electronic control board, the thermostat and the door switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day

    Gas dryer was not heating adequately
    I originally called a repair person to come out but that was a total waste of time and money. He removed the front of the dryer claimed there was a dryer sheet causing the problem and put it back together.
    Never again!
    I watched a youtube video for step by step instructions on how to take the dryer apart.
    I took the front door of the dryer off, removed the filter cover and the dryer drum & belt. Removing this was simple and allowed me to see everything I was working on. With the new part in hand, I removed one wire at a time from the non working heat sensor and connected it to the new part. That way I was sure I had the right connections.
    I then removed the thermostat making sure to put the new one back in place exactly as the old one.
    I then put the drum back in place with the belt securely fastened. I put the cover back on the lint filter and placed the dryer door back on securing it in place. The dryer is now working perfectly. It takes longer to take the dryer apart than to replace the old parts.

    Dryer wasn’t heating
    Well it went really well until the dryer was put back together as it still didn’t heat. The dryer was taken apart again. This time the thermistors &fuse was tested. Alas, the new fuse was faulty. After putting the car lid fuse back on n, the dryer worked again
