High Limit Thermostat - L260-50F Specifications

The high limit thermostat is designed for use in your dryer. The function of this part is to make sure that your dryer does not get too hot. If your dryer is not regulating heat properly, you may need to replace the high limit thermostat. This part is approximately 2 inches in width, and 1-1/2 inches in height. The high limit thermostat is located inside the dryer, so you will need to take the dryer apart to access it for repair. Before you begin this repair, be sure that the power source to your dryer is disconnected. This part is sold individually.

my exhaust vent duct was totally clogged up. After I cleaned it out I still had no heat. In this situation is it more likely that my high limit thermostat is bad ? And should I also change the thermal fuse.
For model number DV45H7000EWa2
Hello Robert, thank you for writing. Generally if one spot was clogged the entire unit will need a good cleaning. Pull the dryer away from wall and disconnect the vent from the dryer outlet. Go outside and unscrew the cover from the vent outlet. Vacuum the lint from both ends of the vent line, using a canister vacuum cleaner. Blow lint out of the parts of the line you can't reach, using a leaf blower. Replace the heating element part FIX4205218. Good luck with this repair!

The dryer seems too hot and will not go into cooldown mode and shut off. It just keeps on running and heating. Clothes are way too hot. Could this be one of the thermal switches or thermistor?
For model number DV210AEWXAA
Hello Danny, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: high limit thermostat, thermostat, thermal fuse, heating element, and check the air flow into the dryer and blower wheel. 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. Hope this helps!

Dryer gives the code the vent is clogged but it isn't
For model number Dv306lewxaa
Hello William, thank you for contacting us. We would recommend checking the lint filter, part number PS4206807, for blockage and damage. Also, make sure that the blower wheel, part number PS4212790, is working. It attaches to the drive motor shaft and blows air through the drum and out through the exhaust vent. Please reach out to customer service if you need help placing an order. Glad to be of help!

Dryer no longer heating
I pretty much followed the provided videos, but didn't remove the drum. That seemed a bit much. I was able to get the heating element out, and replace the Thermal Fuse and Thermostat. Dryer runs and heats like a top now!

New Purchase would not ever heat
Samsung had no servicers available, after over 3 months calling and sending photos and signing papers they sent a refund. Never any advice on repair from Samssung. Saw a video by JEFF OSTIROFF that lfor disassembly and location of heating parts. Gor $40 Samsug service manual that was rather useless. Disassembled and tested thermostat, Thermistor, and heat element. Appeared that HI-HEAT thermistor was open circuit all others OK. Sent for new one, arrived damaged insufficientlyb packed Tested original again out of appliance, tested OK. Got replacement for damaged thermistor and put it in, reassembled and IT WORKED! Notvsure if original thermistor was intermittant, or connection problem was the fault.
