DV42H5200EF/A3 was in a house we just bought.

Was doing the classic Samsung thing where it hangs up at 1sec on sensing cycles. Opened it up and heating element had melted not only itself but the housing! Replaced the entire housing; element & all sensors on element assembly.

Start it up and start getting HE codes now. Find the thermal fuse on the blower is open so I replace that. It still throws HE code.

The thermistor measures ~10k, the fuses on blower and element all show continuity, element is not grounded to chassis. Whole unit has been cleaned. Vent is not the issue it’s cleaned and the result is the same even with it off.

On normal cycle the HE comes as it’s trying to cool down. On air fluff cycle heat is present and the HE stops the dryer a few minutes in.

I’m at a loss probably the main board that this point but I’d love to hear any other suggestions before I go that route.

Also horrified how rampant this issue is after researching it. I always thought Samsung appliances were nice 🤷🏼‍♂️

I think the main control is the only thing left that would cause the problem after everything you have done or checked.

Samsung and LG are the worst appliances out there if you are asking lol.

I agree with Shawn.(y)

Here's the control board for your model:
