I have seen similar posts on the forum about this 1 minute problem but I have never figured out what was the solution.  I have had the Samsung DV218AEW for five years now. After two years the sensor dry no longer worked so we switched to time dryer. A month ago it would go through the whole cycle and go to 1 minute but never stop.  It doesn't have the marching ants so I ruled that problem out. Saw that the main board was the problem so I ordered the part from Samsung's preferred parts store so I wouldn't get one of the older faulty parts (sorry guys but I didn't know about you guys yet).  Installed it easily today and ran a test cycle...that never stopped.  It always gets to 1 minute and stays that way.  

 

Should I return the part and try again?  Could the wiring be the problem? Since I didn't know the final solution I didn't know if it is crazy to keep returning the same part over and over.  Thanks for your wisdom.

How's the Vent system ?

Have you tried an empty load with the Vent disconnected ?

I just finished trying that great idea and unfortunately it got to a minute and would not stop.  Another idea?  Thanks again.

Your problem description is different from the one in the Samsung service bulletin:

 

In sensor dry cycle, the timer counts down to 6 minutes then adds 1:06 on the display.

 

 

 

Which means the solution in the bulletin, replacing the main PCB, does not apply in your case.  

 

Return the board for a refund.

 

Put the unit into diagnostic mode and use the Fast Track manual to troubleshoot:  http://appliantology...al-dv203-dv337/
