    Default DV42H5000EW Counts down to 1 min then keeps heating and running

    Model Number: DV42H5000EW
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    I have a 2-3 year old Samsung dryer that on timed dry counts down to 1 min then doesn't stop heating or tumbling. The exhaust is very short and clean. I'm guessing control board. I believe it has two. One at the control panel and one internally. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    Another member with a slightly different Samsung dryer model had this same problem, and it was the heating element that was grounded causing the heater to stay on all the time, thus never shutting the dryer off at the 1 minute mark.

    Unplug your dryer from the wall, then remove your heating element and see if the heater coil on it is broken and touching the metal heater housing. If so, you'll need to order and replace the heating element to fix your dryer.

    Here's the heating element assembly for your model:
    DC97-14486A Heating Element Assembly


    For three wire use part number DC93-00154A.

    There is a video in the part link that shows you how to remove/replace it.

    Let us know what you find.
