  1. Bridgette Lightcap

    My Samsung dryer – dv210aew/xaa shows an E9 when I turn it on.
    It doesn’t seem to work properly since this error.

  2. Michael leite

    Gas Samsung dryer, shuts off while in any dryer setting. Gets hot and starts to dry the close and then will shut off. Plugged it into different outlets on a different electric circuit and also remove the dryer vent to ensure it was not clogged. Still same issue. Not seeing any errors codes. Once it shuts off if I hit power button it turns right back on. Had a repair man come out but he wasn’t sure what could cause this. Told me to go buy another control board but wasn’t sure if that was the issue. Need help

  3. Deborah a tate

    The electric dryer is heating fine except on the Perma press cycle. I’m getting the he code before it’s through the entire cycle, when I open the door it’s really hot so I do believe it’s not getting to the cooling down cycle.

      Diane,
      Samsung dryer displays the hourglass symbol, what does it mean?
      The hourglass symbol on your Samsung dryer shows that the number currently displayed on the control panel is the time remaining in the wash cycle.

  4. My new Samsung dryer DVE50R5400V /3A runs for 15 secs then FC error what could be the problem…. At the same time my power is single phase 240v but the dryer comes with the American L2 N L1 … How I go about that?

  5. Hello
    My dyer model dv448agp/xaa has the error message “filter check”. I’d cleaned the filter and changed the exhaust hose but still the message is there. What should I try next?
    Thank you

  6. Model DV395GTPARA/A1
    Samsung Dryer

    Runs for about 3 seconds then stops and will not run again until power off. Then it will do the same thing. Lint filter fits securely and is clean. Once I compressed the two buttons simultaneously and got an error 68. After that there was no error code, just 0000.

    It is not exactly level but it has been working for months in the position it is in now.

    Any ideas? Thanks

  7. I have a Samsung smart care dryer and error code DE comes up. Door closes all the way and I just replaced the door switch but the error code DE still comes up.

  8. I have a 2017 Samsung dryer it has a HC code, I replace the heating element with a complete assembly still shows code . I replaced the PCB and the code still shows . Any idea why the code is still showing the only thing I haven’t replaced is the board for the controls. If I replace it I have replaced Ever Electronic Part on the dryer . Do I need to reset it somehow after putting these parts on

  11. Hi..

    The red grid lights in my Samsung dryer purchased in 2017 is flashing.  When I start a cycle, the actual time-counter works..however, the drum does not rotate and the dryer does not dry/heat. I have cleaned the vents, cleaned the filter.. and still the same problem is there!

    The model @ is DV50KB600E

    Can you please help?

  12.

    1. Hi, were you able to resolve the problem? I’m having the same one. My thermal fuse keeps blowing. I have replaced the heating element (broken wire) and thermal fuse (2x)

      The dryer will dry continuously when not hooked up to the duct (4 or 5 days) but blows thermal fuse on second attempt.

  13. My dryer is not heating, it runs when you first start it and has full time and then it runs for two minutes and then timer goes to one minute and then shuts off. I have a front loader Samsung model DV42h5200ep/A3

  14. Have model DV220. We had a power surge and now the dryer won’t heat. No error codes. It comes on, turns, etc but no heat.

  15. I had a heavy wet queen size blanket in the dryer before it stopped rotating. The timer continued. The only”code” is a picture of a tee shirt that is flashing with an arrow to another tee shirt that is not flashing and has two wiggle lines going to the middle like maybe it is drying. I checked the lint and turned off the breaker for a good hour. Why if anything do the shirts mean.

  16. My Samsung dryer has a red grid light that flashes 5 times as I power on the dryer. The dryer does not heat up. I’ve cleaned the vent and the vent going outside. There are no instructions. What do I do next?

      1. Donna Smallwood

        Hello, The red grid light started coming on, on my dryer today. Dried a blanket and now it won’t come on

  17. I have Samsung dryer not heating. It’s running, just not heating. The error code is :|
    I replaced the heating element. Could it be something else? The coil in the back is not that wound up, nothing clogged there. Any ideas what it might be?

  18. My Samsung dryer keeps stopping and shows a DE error code. We open then shut the door and sometimes it works until end of cycle and sometimes it does it again.

  19. I have a Samsung dryer approximately 10 years old. The dryer will start but after about 8 minuets (on permanent press) I get a code of 60, it could be a code of b0 the 6 or the b is broken. When I use timed dry it will go about 15-20 minuets. I can power off and it will start again but then I get the same message error. I always clean the lint filter after each use. It will show that it is still drying but it is not tumbling.

    1. DIY Repair Help Tips

      Lonnie Olson,
      Can you give us the model number of your Samsung dryer?
      Also, could the error code be dO instead of 60 or bO?

      Does the door shut completely, is the door having an issue?
      To test what may be wrong – Push lightly on the door when the dryer is running and see if anything changes.

      We can assist once we have the model number.
      Thanks.

    1. Syuzanna,
      We have the same problem with our Flex Dry Samsung Dryer.
      Samsung technician wasn’t helpful so Sears replaced it with a new unit.
      The second replacement also shows HC2.
      We don’t know what to do.
      Have you found the answer to this problem?
      Any help would be great!
      Thanks.

      1. I have the same problem!!!! As of 9-21-17. Just got the dryer two weeks ago… what is it???? So frustrating.. Have service coming next week. Feel free to e mail me. Let’s all chat! Darn HC2 error on the Flexdryer.

  31. Hallo I have a Samsung dryer SDC3D809 and it shows error code TE04 after about 2 seconds.

    I’ve tested/cleaned the pump and replaced the floater but still keeps giving this error. All filters and canals have been cleaned.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Maria,
      Samsung Dryer error code dE means the DOOR IS OPEN or the washer “thinks” the door is open.
      Either the door interlock switch is faulty or the connection is faulty… Check both.

    Cleaned and removed lint already.
    Still showing the sign to clean.
    Then when i start the dryer it won’t spin and there is a noise.
    Tried to unplug but still not working.

  34. My Samsung dryer will dry clothes then it doesn’t want to stop. It will stop and show code and restart for a few seconds then stop again. Over and over. All the lights light up around the display and rotate clockwise.

  35. I have a Samsung dryer model dv400ewhdwr/aa that won’t power on. I checked the outlet with a multimeter power is getting into the dryer but it won’t even power on enough to give me an error code. Any Ideas

  36. I have a Samsung electric dryer model # : DV331AER/XAA 01 .
    The issue we are having is the dryer has the hourglass icon and check lint filter icon illuminated.
    When we check the lint filter that light goes off but the hourglass symbol remains; when we press the play button the dryer does nothing. The control panel arrow lights blink as if the are going through a drying cycle but the dryer never actually spins the drum. Any suggestions?

  37. I have a Samsung DV42H5000EW A3 Dryer.
    It has power to display but won’t run and dry.
    No error code, but do have an hourglass symbol on display.
    Any advice?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Darren,
      The belt on the Samsung Dryer drum may have slipped off…. Check that first.
      The hourglass is telling you it is in a delayed mode.
      How long has the hourglass been in the display?
      -RR

  38. I have a Samsung DV42.
    The dryer will run and will dry but neither the timed programs or the moisture sensing programs will stop it automatically.
    If we don’t set a timer to open the door to manually stop it, the dryer eventually will error out and result in the “He” code.
    Any thoughts on a fix? Thanks in advance.

      Tim,

      Samsung HE or hE Error Code = Heating error (electric dryer)
      See if a house circuit breaker for the dryer is tripped; the dryer won’t heat if a leg of the 240 volt power supply is off. Unplug the dryer and check the wiring connections on the heating element.
      Reconnect any loose wires and replace the wire harness if damaged.
      Check the heating element for damage and replace the heating element if defective.

      Samsung HE or hE Error Code = Heating error (gas dryer)
      Make sure the gas supply cut-off valve for the dryer is fully open.
      Unplug the dryer and reconnect any loose wiring connections on the gas valve coils.
      Replace the wire harness if damaged.

  39. My Samsung multi steam vent sensor is giving “HC” message. Any idea what is that? The dryer stops within few seconds of running and gives an HC message on the panel.

    1. I came across this message looking for causes of my own “HC” code on a multi steam Samsung dryer. The dryer had been stopping within a few seconds after starting and sometimes without showing any codes and sometimes flashing “tC” (usually on the 3rd try, and indicating a hot temperature). In taking it apart, I found that the tensioner wheel was broken and that one of the bearing wheels was not spinning, so the dryer drum was not spinning properly leading to it stopping. After fixing these issues with new parts the panel always flashed “HC” indicating a hot temperature upon starting the dryer and it would stop after 3 seconds. This even happened after a power reset and I didn’t even start the dryer. The dryer was then unplugged for a few days while I did other chores. Here’s the thing, it worked fine after that, so I guess it took much longer than 20 minutes to clear the code and to let the unit cool down after fixing the wheel and bearing. I hope this may help a future DIYer in the future.

  40. I have a Samsung dryer model DV419AGU/XAA that is showing a bE error code. I tried depressing all the buttons and that didn’t fix it so I bought a new User Interface Control. Put it in and unplugged it and replugged it in to clear the code and it will run for 20 seconds and than the bE code pops up again. I don’t want to call the appliance guy and my wife is ready to kill me if I don’t get this dryer fixed. Any help is welcome. Thanks

  41. I have experienced the HE error code on my Samsung dryer.
    Model: DV70F5E0HGW
    First when this code appeared, Samsung sent an engineer out, who replaced the PCB board.
    The second time it happened, the guy pressed a few buttons and it reset the code.
    It happened again today and the guy gave me the instructions over the phone.
    Hold anti crease and delay end button together.
    Now while these buttons are pressed down.
    Hold the power button.
    The dryer will turn on and the HE code will be replaced by a DE code.
    Now switch off the dryer by pressing the power button, now switch it back on.
    The display should return to normal and the dryer should be usable.
    My dryer is still under warranty and if I contacted Samsung, they would have sent the independent engineer out, who would of carried out the same instructions and charged Samsung for it.

    1. The reset worked great.
      Just need to hold the two buttons down while you power off and power on. DE code comes up .release buttons and power off and on again.
      Problem solved.
      Many thanks

  42. I have the same issue as another individual there are no codes other than the smiley face and a square symbol and no buttons will do anything the dial will not switch settings.

    1. For Jeremy and Debbie and any others who are having problems with Samsung Dryers… I did not have exactly the same code as what you have (I had an HE error code.) But in any event you can do a ‘reset’ of the dryer by pressing and holding the ‘Mixed Load Bell’ button while turning on the dryer. This got rid of the error code for me, and subsequently the dryer is working fine. If that doesn’t work, try it again, and if not you can also try holding the ‘Lamp’ button while turning on the dryer.

      You’d think Samsung might include this information in their manuals, or online, or tell you about it when you call and beg for help, but of course they don’t. It was actually another kind user on this forum who told me about it, so thanks to him, my dryer did not end up in the bin… where it was destined for.

  43. My Samsung dryer is flashing the code dE???? What does this mean ??? The dryer will start when I close the door even if I do NOT push any button on the dryer panel! Help!!!!!

  45. Samsung DV422EWHDR- no heat. Checked incoming power, vents are clean, replaced heating coil assembly. Not sure where to look next. When I run a timed cycle, it runs for the complete time, but no heat. Cooling light is always lit, not sure if it should be or not.

  46. Samsung dryer dv422. No error code that I have seen. It won’t heat, replaced the whole heating element assembly, had the incoming line checked, no issues there. Is the some key sequence to press to check for error codes? Not sure what my next step should be, the cooling light is always on, can’t quite figure out if it should be or not, if I run a timed setting it runs the full time but never heats. Not sure if I should try replacing the thermistor on the blower or the main control card. Just want my dryer back!

  47. Our Samsung Dryer, model #DV50F9A7EVW/A2, may have taken a power surge. After a storm, the dryer will not shut off. The display shows normal, with no error codes. The dryer runs without heat. It stops when the door opens, but not when the power button turns off the display off. We have unplugged the dryer for days with no change.

    2. I am having the same problem as Kelly Myers. My dryer is a Samsung DV210AG gas. Message is giving me what looks like an E without the top line, followed by a regular E.

  49. I had the HE error code on my Samsung DV8 dryer.
    After cleaning the filters I took it apart and checked the 2 thermistors (~50k ohm) and they appeared to be ok as well as anything else.
    Put it together again and started it.
    Same HE error code again.
    I then switched the machine off and held the light-button while turning it on.
    The dryer then made a self-test and displayed “b2”.
    I turned it off and on again and the code was gone. Yeeha!
    Hope it works for you too!!!

    1. Thanks for the tip. We had the HE error once before and had a tech out. He reset via a code. We had the problem again, but I was not able to find what he did anywhere on the internet until now… thanks, it worked like a charm… we are back up and drying. :-)

  50. For the past few days my year-old Samsung dryer DV52J8700E(G) has been stopping before the clothes are dry–both on timed and regular cycles. Finally got a vent clog icon. Cleaned, vacuumed and reattached vent hose and outside vent. Restarted after 20 minutes. Pulled out from wall in case hose was squeezed. Stopped again. Code upside-down FC. Help?

  51. I have model DV210AEW dryer. I have replaced and tested every part of the heating side of the system. I am still getting a HE code on the screen. I replaced the thermostat, high temp sensor and the Assy Pcb Main board and tested the heating coil and it was good.

    1. Hi Phil I seem to have a very similar problem. HE error code. My dryer is a DV80H8100HW (heat pump dryer.) If you ever do find a solution to this problem please do let me know! I have replaced the thermistor already as well but to no help.

    I have a DV80H8100HW heat pump Samsung dryer. I (stupidly) mounted it in a cupboard with poor ventilation. I also didn’t know about the lint trap at the bottom left front of the unit, and so I never cleaned it. I now have an HE error code.
    I bought a new thermistor and replaced it, but it didn’t work. What is the next step please?

When I turn the dryer on there is an HE code on the screen and I cannot select a cycle, run the dryer, or do anything. The only thing I can do at that stage is turn the dryer off again. I have checked all wiring as far as I can see with the top, front and back off and it looks ok. Please note that this is a brand new unit. Since it was running in a cabinet with poor airflow, I agree there is a good chance it’s a heating element problem of some sort. But this is a Heat Pump dryer – does it even have a heating element? Or is it a compressor? And how can I access this part of the dryer? I’m not sure how to check ‘the element is not shorted’. I don’t see anything that looks like a compressor or heating element on the front of the unit. Any and all advice appreciated thanks!

          If the Samsung dryer is brand new, why not call the company that sold it to you and have it replaced or fixed?

          You may have a completely different dryer configuration than we realized.
          Can you give us the full model number and serial number so we can research further?

          And yes, the dryer needs some air flow to be able to run properly, that may or may not cause the HE code.
          How much space does the dryer have inside the cabinet?

        2. Yes the Samsung dryer is brand new, but I have taken it overseas, hence the company that sold it to me cannot help me. The model is a DV80H8100HW (Heat Pump Dryer.) Serial number I’m afraid I don’t have right now as I’m not at home. I can get it if it’s really necessary. I have modified the cabinet so that there is much more airflow now so I don’t think that will be a problem in the future. But alas the dryer is still not working and still has the HE code. As mentioned before the thermistor has already been replaced.

    My Samsung dryers has a red blinking light when first turned on. Once the dryer is started on Normal Mode, it sets itself to 40 minutes. As it is drying and the countdown begins, it gets down to 38 minutes then resets to 1 minute and starts cooling down. We can not figure out what it is, Can anyone here tell me what is going on or what I need to replace? Model # DV42H5OOOEW/A3.

      Alfredo Gonzalez III,
      If the countdown on your Samsung dryer changes during a dry cycle, usually it means the main control board is faulty.
      Have you inspected the board? Wire harnesses? Thermistor?

    No code comes up. You turn it on. It sings. It makes a click noise but it doesn’t do anything after that. No heat. No spin. No codes.
    Any thoughts?

  57. My Samsung dryer display is showing a circulating rectangle, like it’s in motion going clockwise.
    The clothes are getting dry but I can’t find my manual to check it. I don’t know how else to describe it.

      Angela Venable,
      What is the model number of your Samsung Dryer?
      Check to see if “Wrinkle Prevent” is selected on the display.
      This will tumble your dryer intermittently after the heat cycle is done to assist in preventing wrinkled clothing.
      “Wrinkle Prevent” can be turned ON or OFF by pressing its button on the display panel.

  58. Samsung Dv45h6300e dryer got a lint code (Icon) and will not start.
    The lint trap and vent are clean and don’t know what to do?
    I unplugged it for 10 minutes to see if it would reset.

      Doug Brown,
      Check the vent line from Samsung dryer to wall, then check in wall.
      You may have a build-up of lint.
      Use a canister vacuum and clean out the lint in the wall.

      MI hello Hall,
      Is the error code E without the top LED lit flashing on your Samsung Dryer?
      Have you tried to unplug it to see if it may reset?

      Shelby Hamilton,
      Samsung Dryer Error Code showing an upside down F and 0 means = The code you see indicates a problem in the thermistor circuit.
      This may also be caused by a clogged lint screen or restricted vent system.
      This type of diagnosis will require using an ohmmeter to check the thermistor and circuit.

      Check that the lint screen is not clogged first…. then look to see if the venting system is clear of lint build-up

    My Samsung dryer DV328AEW/XXA is giving a cc code. Before it was giving a ts code. Does anyone know how to reset the codes so I can find the proper error code now. Thanks in advance

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Sherri Ferguson,
      The Samsung Dryer error code CC is not in our database….
      Try fixing the tS error first….

      SAMSUNG DRYER ERROR CODE tS = Thermistor is faulty = Shorted Out.
      TO FIX = Unplug the dryer and use a volt/ohm meter to test the resistance of the thermistor.
      If the resistance is more than 40,000 ohms then replace the thermistor.
      If the resistance is 10,000 ohms then replace the wire harness if you find it to be damaged.
      If the wire harness is good then replace the electronic control board.

        First, I wanted to say I really appreciate you taking the time to respond to me. The dryer is now running without shutting down. I unplugged the dryer for a bit and plugged it back in. The cc code went away, but now the dryer has no heat. :-). I am assuming that I need a heating element. Do I test that with the ohms meter as well? Or how should I replace the heating element? Again thank you.

        1. DIY Project Help Tips

          Sherri Ferguson,
          Do a visual on the element.
          Are the wires secure and in place on the element?
          Are the wires tight and no signs of damage?
          Then check it with a meter using OHMS.
          If it reads bad, remove and replace the heating element on your Samsung dryer.

    Samsung Dryer code is showing tO. Don’t know if that’s any different. Didn’t have an ohm meter but continuity is positive. I was assuming if the dial was stuck open there would be no continuity.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Scott klingman,
      Error t0 is an open thermistor on Samsung dryers. Thermistor should measure 10,000 ohms at 77 degrees fahrenheit.
      Check it at the blower with one side disconnected and if OKAY, check it at the plug on the control board.

      Tara Blackburn,
      First, be sure the dryer door is properly closed and the lint filter is properly installed…
      The Samsung Dryer Eg Or E9 Error Code is not actually an error code. It is a code displayed when the dryer is in the test mode used on the production line. This error can appear when certain buttons are pushed at the same time or in a certain sequence. To exit this and clear the E9 error, unplug the dryer from power for 10 seconds and then plug back in. You can also flip the breaker to the dryer if it is difficult to access the plug.

  62. My dryer is giving me a DE error message and I can’t find the code any where online. Please let me know what I can do?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Jose,
      DE Error on Samsung dryer means that “door is open”. The dryer thinks the door is open. It is probable that power is not getting passed from the door switch to the control board. Check the door switch assembly to be sure the wire harness is connected and that it is not damaged. If damaged, replace it with an OEM part.

      Samsung Dryer FE error code = Power supply frequency is out of range
      Check the frequency of your electrical power supply.

    Samsung dryer has Error Codes, but dryer will turn on, little red tee-shirt will blink showing it is drying, but machine does nothing. I have no error code to show me what may be wrong. The Error Codes work, because it comes on when the door is open. The wrinkle free symbol comes on, but that is it.

      Pascual,

      Samsung Dryer Error Code E3 could be a few different faults:

      1 – Motor overload error (Let motor cool down for 1 hour)
      2 – Vent is blocked (Clean out vent to prevent overheat)
      3 – Thermistor error (Remove and replace dryer thermistor)

      Sometimes the wire harnesses on the dryer control board comes loose. Resecure the electrical contacts and wire harnesses and the error code should clear.

      John,
      The Samsung Dryer manual shows E5 error code is a temperature control error.

      TO FIX:
      Disconnect the unit from the vent to see if you still get the error. If not then clean the vent.
      OR
      Check for a grounded element.
      Unplug the unit and both wires at the heater.
      Measure across the heater.

  65. At a loss with my Samsung dryer! Giving code DO, took it apart and checked wiring harness. Didn’t see any damage or loose wires, so i bought a new door switch. Installed it, turned dryer on and pressed start. It ran for half a second and flashed DO error code again. Rechecked all wires, nothing… Any advice on what to do next? Everything else works and comes on so i don’t think its the board… Just frustrated!! Model number dv218aeb.

      T,
      Samsung Dryer Error Code do = Door is open

      TRY:
      Unplug the dryer and check for loose or damaged wiring connections in the door switch circuit.
      Reconnect the wire harness if loose or disconnected.
      Replace the wire harness if damaged.
      Replace the door switch if damaged or defective.

      Parts Needed:
      Door switch, Wire harness

  66. I have a Samsung dryer dv48 j7770e is showing code clg during vent test. Owners manual states this is a clog in vent but I checked and everything looks good, also when I just turn it on normal to start load it kicks on for about 3 sec then shows a # 1. This is a brand new dryer never been used.

    1. Hello Tobie, what did you do to resolve this issue? having same problem with our brand new dryer and it is not even used once.

      Evan Kozak,
      Samsung dryer 9E1 error code represents a malfunctioning main PBA OR power faults related to an electrical power supply that is incompatible with the Samsung Dryer.
      This means either the control board is bad, or there is a power issue.
