Hi everyone, i'm new here and need help. My Samsung washer 18 months old (i'll never purchase another samsung product again!) just broke 2 days ago and we had to buy a new one. Today my Samsung dryer also 18 months old has done the same. I'm attempting to fix it myself because I cannot afford a new one.

Dryer runs for 1-2 minutes then the timer suddenly drops to 1 minute from 57 and goes into cooling mode and shuts off. I tried unhooking the vent and running it without it but that didn't help anything.

Any help/direction is appreciated.

Thank you Jake, I did a lot of reading and as a result tried cleaning the moisture censor with a fine sand paper and rubbing alcohol. IT EXTENDED THE DRY TIME And shut off around 30 minutes of a 59 cycle, so then I tried a timed cycle not the auto it worked normally. Is it safe to say it's the moisture bar that needs replacing? That way I can go ahead and order it. Thanks again!

First try cleaning the moisture sensor bar with rubbing alcohol, many members here have had good success doing that.
