Samsung dryer not heating. When your Samsung dryer is not heating, Make sure you have cleaned the vent lines and the lint filter, as a clogged vent line will cause your Samsung dryer to not heat properly.

Check all parts of the dryer to make sure what is causing it not to heat. Check thermostats, thermal cut-out fuse, wiring, voltage, and vent line.

So Why Samsung Dryer Not Heating

If your Samsung dryer spins but doesn’t heat, a burned-out heating element could be your problem.

The Samsung dryer may have a faulty thermostat, thermal cut-out fuse, clogged air vent line, incorrect voltage, faulty heating element, or other internal wiring problems.

In addition to the above, what does it mean when the dryer does not heat up?

With an electric clothes dryer, no heat often means that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown; reset or replace it.

Note that a tumble dryer may have two circuit breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one runs, but the heating element requires both.

Thermal fuseThermal Fuse

Another reason could be the thermal fuse – if reducing the load doesn’t solve the problems, the problem may need to check by the thermal fuse.

It may be blown. So before diagnosing the problem, let’s see what this fuse does and why it doesn’t work.

The thermal fuse of a tumble dryer is a protection device that trips if the tumble dryer is at risk of overheating. The fuse protects against surges and when the dryer is not working properly.

Possible Cause

If the thermal fuse blows and the dryer does not overheat, the fuse may not be working properly.


You need to check the thermal fuse with a multimeter and do a continuity test. If the test fails, then the thermal fuse is faulty and needs to be replaced. To do this, you need to follow the steps below.

  • To access the thermal fuse, remove the rear panel.
  • Locate the fuse. It is usually near the blower or the heating element.
  • Use a multimeter and do a continuity test.
  • If the fuse fails the test, replace it.

Where is a reset button on my Samsung dryer?

Many dryers are equipped with a reset button on the control panel. If the motor does not run, allow the dryer to cool down for about ten minutes.

Then press the reset button. If there are no problems with the motor, switches, or electrical system, this should restart the dryer.

How long do Samsung dryers last?

The average life of your washer and dryer is about the same.

Generally, a washing machine can last between 12 and 14 years, while a dryer can last approximately between 12 and 18 years. Your washer and dryer should last at least 10 years.


If your Samsung dryer does not heat up even after performing the steps above, it may be time to consult a professional. They will help you with a quick and easy solution.
