Dryer - no heat


Have 22 month old front-end load dryer samsung model dv42h5000 ew/ac which has stopped heating. The motor runs and the airways are clear of lint. I also turned the breaker off and on again. Can't get any heat. Any suggestions before i call appliance service?

Check limit switch on element. Also check dryer make sure it's getting 240 volts and not 120

Re: Dryer - no heat


definitely 240 connection but was wondering about some kind of cutout or limit switch on the heating element. Can't find anything in the manual.

Have you measured 240 at the receptacle?
