Samsung dryer DV306LEW/XAA error code be or 6e
Posted 07 October 2010 - 06:17 AM
I was not in love with my old dryer and after a quick prayer for wisdom, I decided to bring it home. I cleaned the vent and hooked it up. I have done two or three loads a day for 40 minute timed dry for most loads. For towels I am using 50 minute on high. Works great.
My beloved and very useful husband was home from work and washed 4-5 loads of mostly towels and sheets back to back on high and he likes 60 or more minute cycles or sensor dry. He got the code and dryer was stopped. Items were damp. I told him to turn it off and back on. He did so and it handled another load or two that day. No code for last three or four days. I have only done one load or two loads a day. No back to back marathon washing.
Hubby said code looks like a be or 6e but he was not sure which. I cannot get it to show me the code. It just works for me:} Any suggestions or words of wisdom? A service manual link for this would be awesome, too. I tried to pay for my apprentise plan but page keeps telling me my user name or password are wrong. I signed in with same user name and password on paypal site with no problem, though. If you send a email address I can sent it direct without using your shopping cart system which does not seem to like me.

We discovered that the stuck button was either wrinkle guard or adjust time arrows. We did not get the stuck button code when we made sure not to push either of those choices. My front panel is a different from the one above. A few weeks later we discovered that the left side of large knob which is the sensor dry settings would leave the clothes wet sometimes.
So we have been used just the time dry and have been getting dry clothes in 50-60 minutes.
Last week I had to push start button a couple of times for it start. Friday night my husband dried a load of towels. Saturday morning I pushed start for the next load and nothing happened. The green led lights are on the panel to the left. I can adjust heat and time buttons. There are no error codes. I checked that door is shutting. I can hear the click and it feels solidly shut.
I unplugged it and checked for lint. I took the long brush to vent area inside the dryer. I did not get much. I cleaned the back of machine and the flex pipe to wall. I went outside and checked vent outside. It is a very short run of few inches. No curves. Everything is clean. I plugged it back in and it still will not start.
The button does not seem to depress when I push. Husband agrees that it seems like the large center of button (start-pause) seems stuck.
My model number is DV306LEW/XAA. Serial number is 225354BA102684B
Any help is appreciated. Not experienced at repairs, just on a very small budget. The affordable 40-50 service fee (show up at door and first 20 minutes) appliance repairmen in my area will not work on bosch, samsung or lg. The samsung service man is 95 service call with only 15 minutes of service included. Not sure that I could afford the higher service call, plus labor, plus parts. Also he will only install parts that he orders so a return trip charge and part markup would apply. So your site is a huge blessing to our family.
Hoping it is something that we can tackle with your expert help. You saved my LG washer that I got for free due to bad hall sensor. I loved your price 20 ish for part and very affordable shipping, too. I got a friend to help and we got it installed with your instructions. You guys are awesome.

I called around and found a decent repair shop that will come out to my area for only $45 and that included up to 30 minutes tech time so I can now pay a tech if needed. They run a used appliance place in Tampa. Great people, in past they did not go out into field up have recently added the service. They will let me supply my own parts, too.
If I read manual right, I can only run the test mode if machine is running. Since I can not get it to start, no test mode for me?
