Samsung Dryer Stuck On Cooling: What To Do
Is your Samsung dryer stuck on cooling mode? follow this procedure on what to do.
You may have double-checked all the sensors, cleaned them all, and done both a timed and a sensor cycle with no luck. There is actually something you are not doing perfectly.
There might be an issue with the dryer’s load balance, lint filter, main control board, or power supply if it continues in the cool-down mode for a lengthy amount of time.
Reset The Dryer
The first thing you can do is reset the Samsung dryer.
When anything goes wrong with your dryer, such as an error code or it won’t turn on, spin, start, or heat, you might believe a simple reset is all that’s required.
Strange electronic glitches (such as those that may occur after a power outage) may be cleared with this reset, but if the dryer does not restart, additional troubleshooting will be required.
However, depending on the error you receive, resetting at the first sign of trouble isn’t always a good idea. Read on to learn how to reset, when to do it and when not to, and what to do if it doesn’t work.
When to reset
All fault codes in your dryer’s memory will be cleared if you reset it. “Great, now my dryer will work again,” you may think, but it’s a little more involved than that.
To begin with, certain difficulties are caused by something you’ll need to solve, and restarting the device isn’t a troubleshooting step. If your dryer isn’t heating up properly, it might be due to a clogged vent. A reset won’t clear your vent and won’t help you fix this problem, but a vent obstruction test can help you figure out if it’s the source of the problem.
So, when should you perform a reset? After you’ve gone through all of the troubleshooting steps. However, some error codes have no solutions and the only thing you can do is try a reset.
You shouldn’t try to clear the code again if a reset doesn’t work. Wiping the unit’s history of error codes makes it more difficult for a technician to diagnose and fix the problem.
Normally, the cooling light will remain on during the cycle. It will start blinking at the completion of the cycle when it enters the cool-down phase.
If that light starts blinking shortly after starting the dryer in the automatic moisture sensing cycle, the moisture sensing circuit may be malfunctioning. In that case, try a Time Dry cycle to see if the dryer will heat up and run properly.
If the Time Dry cycle works successfully, I recommend checking the sensor bars for residue or lint that might hinder the control from sensing moisture. Those bars are immediately inside the dryer door, on the lint screen housing. You can clean those bars with rubbing alcohol if necessary.
If those bars are clean, the problem might be due to a wiring or control failure.
If the cooling light does not blink before the dryer turns off, the moisture sensing bars are unlikely to be the cause of the failure. When the dryer stops, you may get an error code.
