Thank you for the question. Please check to make sure the door is closed properly - the dryer will not run if the door is not latched. Other items you can check include emptying the lint filter screen, checking the vent ducts to make sure they aren't clogged, and making sure a cycle is properly selected. If these suggestions don't resolve the issue, try cycling the circuit breaker off then on again to reset the power. If the dryer still won't run, it will likely require service. To initiate service through Samsung, please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

if you have any mechanical ability take it apart. start with the top, two screws in the back hold it on. with those removed pull the lid back off of the tabs. then remove the control panel (4 screws). then remove the mounting bracket behind the control panel(4 screws). next unplug the control panel(two plugs) and set aside. next remove the front bracket for the drum(4 screws). pull up and out guiding it through the mounting slots. then pull drum straight out. now you can get to motor or belt tensioner. check to make sure spring is on the tensioner and bracket on floor. you may need a new belt as i did. if belt is stretched or spring is off tensioner the tensioner will drop down and activate a kill switch for the motor and dryer will not run. the control panel will work but when you hit start all you will hear is the click of the relay but dryer will not start. the tensioner spring had come of mine. i replaced the belt, put it back together and it works like new!

Question

My dryer control panel lights up but won't actually start a cycle. Is it something I can fix?

The panel lights up when turned on but no cycle actually starts. We tried to unplug it and plug it back in hoping it only needed to be reset but nothing changed. No warning lights are present like the door being open etc. Please help.

I'm sorry to hear your DV209 will not start. Please check to make sure the door is closed and latched securely. If the door is open the dryer would not operate but there wouldn't be an error code to let you know it either. Next, make sure the Child Lock is not activated by pressing the Time and Signal buttons simultaneously for at least 3 seconds.

If the dryer still won't start, it will likely require service. To initiate service through Samsung, please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

The DV209's lint filter is accessible at the bottom of the door opening. Simply open the dryer door, lift the lint screen from its housing, remove the lint from the screen and housing well, and replace the screen. Some people also like to use lint brushes with long handles that are specifically designed to reach into the lint traps and can be used to clean lint from the vents, as well.

Thank you for the question. The life expectancy of the dryer belt cannot be easily estimated because there are so many variables involved. Some of the factors besides amount of time used that would effect it include the size or weight of the load and the level of heat typically used in the dry cycle.

I'm sorry to hear your DV209AEW is not heating. The most common cause of the dryer not heating is obstructed air flow from a clogged lint trap or vent ducts. Since you've already checked these, other factors to check are to make sure the dryer is plugged into a dedicated 30-amp power supply that is functioning properly, and an appropriate heated dry cycle is selected. I would suggest cycling the power to the dryer by turning the circuit breaker off then on again. If you've checked each of these suggestions and the dryer still will not heat, it will require service.

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with your DV209AEW. If the dryer is not heating, please check the vent ducts and lint filter and housing for blockage. Obstructions to air flow can prevent the dryer from heating or from running a full cycle. Try cycling the power by unplugging the dryer, or turn the circuit breaker off then on again; make sure the dryer is plugged into a dedicated 30-amp power supply that is functioning properly, and an appropriate heated dry cycle is selected.

If the dryer is getting hot, but is not drying the clothes completely when set on a Sensor Dry cycle, please follow the link below, then select "Troubleshooting ► Clothing And Laundry" and select the topic that most closely resembles what you are experiencing: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...

If, after reviewing the tips and information provided, you are still experiencing this issue, please call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you further.

To clean the lint trap in your DV209, remove the screen. Clean the lint off the screen and remove any lint build up that has accumulated in the housing. It may be helpful to use a long-handled lint brush that can be found at most appliance, home improvement or hardware stores to clean the housing area. Pay special attention to the sides of the housing to ensure no build up remains that can prevent the lint screen from returning to its proper position, then replace the screen.

If your dryer is expelling cold air, please make sure a heated dry cycle is selected, or the cycle has not transitioned into the Wrinkle Prevent mode. In this mode, the dryer will continue to tumble for up to 90 minutes after the heated dry cycle is complete to help prevent wrinkles from setting in.

If a heated dry cycle is selected and the dryer is not heating at all, please check the vents for blockage and make sure the dryer is plugged into a dedicated 30-amp power supply that is functioning properly. If you've checked each of these suggestions and the dryer still will not heat, it will require service.
