Hi everyone,
I have a Samsung dryer model: DV42H5400 that shuts off after 2 minutes on a sensor setting. Manual settings are fine and continue to dry.

So far I have tested and/or replaces the following:
1. Thermostat and temperature fuses - replaced, the issue still persists.
2. Removed the duct, cleaned, and tested the dryer without the duct being attached - it still shuts off after 2 minutes.
3. Placed it in Smart Install Mode and checked the moisture sensors with a wet wipe and they were fine. I also checked them for continuity and that was fine.
4. In Smart Mode, I checked the motor and heater and the OK message was shown. I checked for continuity and that was fine too.

What am I missing? Everything I've seen online so far is either the thermostat, temp fuse, or moisture sensors.

Hi,

Use rubbing alcohol on a cloth to clean the moisture sensor bar first, and see if that resolves it.

Here's the moisture sensor bar for your model:
Moisture Sensor DC61-02627A
