I had a call and the people said the sensor mode wouldn't  dry the clothes.  These people live over 100 miles away so I replaced the control board and the sensor itself.  Now they have called back and said the dryer won't shut off in sensor mode, that it starts all over.  They said that it will count down and shut off in timed dry.  Could somebody give me some possible causes for these symptoms?  I know that I plugged in the all the connectors when I changed the control board and the sensor bars.

There's a service bulletin out on this problem that includes your model number.  Problem description sounds very similar to what you're seeing.

Guess we were posting at the same time!

 

The first Graphic is for testing the sensor function.

I've not done Samsung warranty for 3 years now---and my Samsung memory is being over-written by incoming/new LG memory.

 

Sorta like a flash re-program using a jig. :)

 

Looking at my notes---the last time that I had a Samsung dryer was in 2009...

 

Model: DV218AEB/XAA

 

Serial: W04S54BQ901182R

 

Symptom: "Takes Too Long To Dry and Cycle Starts Over Again By itself"

 

Per Samsung Tech Center : Replace Main Board DC92-00160A

 

Problem solved.

 

I'd re-verify that the *correct* Main Board was installed.

 

If part(s) are ordered/obtained through a non-Samsung source---there's always a chance that the you'll receive the same defective/out-of-spec/non-updated part. Especially Main or Display Boards.


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Would the defective/out-of-spec/non-updated part have the same part number?  I checked and I installed DC92-00160A.
