Questions & Answers for samsung 7.3 cu. ft. Gas Dryer

Question

How do I get my new gas dryer to stop BUZZING during a cycle?

Gas dryer DV220AGW/XAA. During a cycle an annoying buzzing sound comes on and lasts for 5-8 seconds. It happens on SENSOR and MANUAL dry cycles. The clothes are still wet. We thought it was telling us to check the clothes becasue they are dry, this is not the case. This noise is VERY annoying and we need it to stop ASAP. Please help.

You have to get the gas solenoid valve replaced. They won't cover it under warranty because it does not hinder the use or performance of the dryer. It's just annoyingly loud.

It is possible that what you are hearing is the Mixed Load Bell, which, when enabled, alerts you when the average dry level is damp dry (80% dried). This is useful when the laundry contains various types of clothing you do not want to dry completely. An alarm sounds for five seconds while continuing to perform the cycle. To deactivate this feature, press the Mixed Load Bell button on the upper right of the control panel.

Question

Why does it take so long for my clothes to dry?

The dryer is only about half full yet it takes approximately 2.5 hours for the clothes to completely dry. Is there something I can do to shorten that time? Am I doing something wrong? Other dryers only take at most 1 hour to dry my clothes and that's when I do big loads. I have the Samsung DV220AGW gas dryer. I have tried both the sensor and timed setting and have set the dry level to High. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry to hear your clothes are taking so long to dry. The most common reason for this actually has to do with venting and air flow. If your lint filter or housing are clogged or if there is any blockage in the vent ducts that is impeding air flow, your dryer cannot operate efficiently. Please click here for a list of ducting requirements, which can also be found in your user manual: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...

It's the gas solenoid valve. You are one of the unlucky ones that got one that does that. It does not hurt anything, its just annoying. They will not repair it under warranty.

Thanks for the question. The symbol you're describing is the check filter light, which is a reminder for you to check the lint screen each time you use the dryer. The other symbols indicate whether the Mixed Load Bell, Child Lock and Signal Off functions are activated.

The DV220AGW/XAA gas dryer can be converted to liquid propane with Samsung's LPKIT-3 conversion kit, which is available through SamsungParts.com. The electrical rating, however, is 120V, 60 Hz, 15 amps.

Samsung's electric dryers are rated for 120V, 60 Hz, 15 amps.

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue with your DV220 dryer. There are a couple of factors that can effect the ability of the sensors to work correctly and dry thoroughly. First, check to make sure the lint trap and housing are clean and the vent ducts are not clogged. Next, wipe down the sensors located on the inside surface of the lint trap area (just below the door opening). A build up of lint and debris in these areas can effect the ability of the sensors to work properly. If you're drying a mixed load, it is not unusual for heavy, damp items to migrate to the rear of the drum, away from the sensors, which would then detect only the dry, lighter weight items at the front. If you're drying a mixed load, Samsung recommends using the Time Dry settings. If the load is not mixed, the lint filter, housing and ducts are free of lint build up, and your dryer still shuts off early when set on an appropriate Sensor Dry setting, it may 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.

Once the DV220AGW is connected to the appropriate gas and electric power supplies and the vent is also connected, you should be able to press the Power button, select the desired settings and press Start.

The user manual can be downloaded through the support page for this model (click on the downloads link), and troubleshooting is also available if you need to review the installation requirements; click here for the support page: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/s...

I'm sorry to hear your DV220AGW isn't turning on. Please make sure the door is closed securely and the cycle selector is pointing to a setting. Try cycling the power to the dryer by unplugging then replugging or turning the circuit breaker off then on again. If the dryer still won't start it may require service.

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. Please make sure the door is closed and latched completely. If the door is not closed properly, the dryer will not run. Check the lint filter to make sure there is no blockage of air which can prevent the dryer from operating properly. Try cycling the power to the dryer by unplugging/replugging or turn the circuit breaker off then on again. Reset the cycle and press the Start/Pause button. If the dryer still won't run, it may require service.

Thanks for the question. In order to answer it, it would be necessary to know how much energy your current washer and dryer use. It's also important to note that Energy Star does not currently rate dryers. The WF220, however, is Energy Star rated and, like most other Samsung front load washers currently available, qualifies for the highest CEE Tier 3 rating for energy efficiency. I would suggest you visit Energy Star's website which offers some tools to help you figure out how much you can save by switching to Energy Star-rated products.

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with your dryer. I believe the icon you're describing is a reminder to clean the lint filter; this will light up periodically as a reminder and does not necessarily mean there is an error. If the dryer is not turning on, however, there may be a clog in the vent ducts caused by a build-up of lint that is blocking air flow, and the dryer will not run if there is insufficient circulation. Please check the vent ducts for blockage. If you're able to start the dryer, stand outside where the vent exits the house, if possible, to see whether any air blows out. Try unplugging and replugging the dryer, or turning the circuit breaker off then on again. Make sure the door is closed all the way and a cycle is selected, then press Start. If the problem persists, your dryer may require service. 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.
