Ok thanks people, I guess 20-30% off isn't worth it for ikea... branding... I was thinking that as they have a very strict return policy I can't imagine their appliances...


Thanks dave

In Topic: samsung dv337aeg/xaa sensor problem?

Wow, you guys are amazing... Thank you for the help, the dryer vent goes through a wall then into a garage where a smart contractor decided to use accordian dryer vent material to go up the wall then across the garage and out. I'm assuming that's the real issue as you've all mentioned. My GF has a host of allergies so, every load has softeners and with the soft water they have here (CT.) I believe the sensor being coated as you said is the issue with the sensor dry settings not working as I think they work and the explanation above about estimated dry times fits my profile of the machine. I am having a tough time reaching the sensor to clean it but have resorted to a couple of hard brushes and some basic house cleaning solutions.

I am confident your assessment of the clothes in the rear of the drum is correct, as a full load of towels successfully dried. I'll do some checking and see what I can come up with but I'm going home to Los Angeles tomorrow will have to see what I can do. At least with your help, I was able to get the machine 90% working if not 100%. Thanks to all will check back once I try some of the suggestions.

Best Dave

HI I did test it out without the vent connected and it did resolve the original problem of turning off right away... that is after I cleaned the sensor and took the pcb board out and checked the connectors. Had dust in an older stack unit that caused a failure.

Seems like the the standard problems are the sensors and the thermister but not sure how hard it would be to replace the sensor in the lint trap if It turns out to be the issue...

Forgot thank you very much, I had to not clip 3 of the tabs just couldn't get them on but I know the lid is on. I can't believe how hard that lid was.... both on and off also the no noise now is so weird..... But like you said no noise and no leak is a good washer....
