Hello.

 

I have a five year old Samsung W/D set that was purchased new for a new house.  The dryer is a DV328AEW.  They are on the second floor of my house and the vent is in the foundation, about 28' with two 90 degree turns.

 

Three weeks ago, it lost heat.  I pulled the element and found a break.  As I feared, the broken element may have been caused by a larger problem.  In sensing mode, it would go to 1 minute and hold indefinitely.  We used it on timed mode and it began doing the same thing.  I thought this must be a control board or dryer sensing strip.  So I pulled out the 87V and put it to use probing.

 

I pulled out the stainless sensing strips and cleaned them with a scotch brite.  I measured the Ohms and when I placed my moistened finger across the resistance would start at 400 Ohms and climb.  I decided this was not the problem so it must be the dryer duct or the control board.  I took the liberty to clean the foil dryer hose and make sure it wasn't kinking.

 

The control board was cheap ($60) so I replaced it.  No help, Problem persists.  On a side note, I build PCBAs for a living and that board is a sad piece of severely dated technology.

 

DW has the dryer duct people coming on Wednesday.  Just wondering if I am missing something else?  I suppose I will travel to HD or Lowe's to get a metal rigid duct this weekend.  Does it sound like the vent to you experts out there?

You said you found a broken element but you never said you actually replaced it.  Did you?

Definitely replace the damaged element and have the vent inspected and cleaned.  After that, provided there were no error codes displayed, you should be fine.

Sorry for not making that clear. I replaced the element. The dryer has too much heat now. It goes to one minute and holds.
