It was the wheel that the belt goes around. It was melted and had fallen off.

Cause 1

Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is a safety device designed to protect the dryer from overheating. The fuse is located on the blower housing or at the dryer’s heat source such as the heating element on electric dryers or at the burner on gas models. The fuse should be closed for continuity meaning it has a continuous electrical path through it when good. If overheated the fuse will have no continuity meaning the electrical path is broken and the fuse has blown. A multimeter can be used to test it for continuity. Be aware that a blown thermal fuse is an indication of a restricted exhaust vent from the dryer to the outside. Always check the dryer venting when replacing a blown thermal fuse.

Cause 2

Start Switch

To determine if the start switch is defective, attempt to start the dryer. If the dryer hums but does not start, the start switch is not at fault. If the dryer does not respond or make any noise, the start switch could be at fault. Use a multimeter to test the start switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 3

Door Switch

The door switch activates when the dryer door is closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking sound when it activates. To determine if the door switch is working, try starting your dryer and then listen for the “click.” If the door switch makes a clicking sound, it is probably not defective. If you don’t hear a click, use a multimeter to use the door switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

The dryer comes on and will run for about 10 seconds then shuts off


The exhaust was clogged however it's all cleaned out now I'm just wondering is there a reset switch and what does de as a code mean?


Unplugging it for10 minutes will allow it to reset.


My electric dryer by Samsung DV50K8600EG-A3 will light up on the Control panel, has a clicking noise,and turns to 0 and cut off, but will not start up. What does this mean ?

Answer to Dana's comment above.

Check these items on your Dryer. The thermal cutoff, the Hi-Limit, and the Cycling Thermostat. Since your unit will start, the thermal fuse is good. For more detail go to the iFixit page, Electric Dryer Not Heating
