Hey all,

 

It's been a long time since I've been on this forum, but alas, I need assistance again.

 

I have a Samsung DV410AEW dryer that recently stopped functioning.  The unit turns on and appears to start a cycle, but the drum never spins.  Additionally, the "hourglass" that Samsung uses to indicate it is in a drying cycle stays lit from the initial power on.

 

I've tried removing from power, but it still exhibits the same symptoms upon powering it back up.

 

If I start the dryer, the "shirt" icon will flash, but the drum never moves.  It eventually claims it finishes, but upon turning off and back on, the "hourglass" is showing once again.

 

I hear a relay or something kick on when you start the cycle.  I don't hear anything that sounds like the motor is running, but it makes me wonder if the belt is broken.  I'd like to find a service manual to figure out how to get the thing far enough apart to check the belt.

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

 

Jim Coates

I subscribed as an apprentice as requested to get access to the manual.  I need to crack this thing open and see if the belt is indeed broken, but need to know how to access it.

 

Thanks in advance.

Much thanks.  I cracked the unit open and found that the belt had indeed broken.  I should have another one tomorrow and will see if it takes care of everything!

 

Thanks,

Jim

Got the replacement belt today and just finished replacing it.  The dryer is once again up and running!

 

Thanks for the help!

Jim
