Samsung dryer error code de (DC)

Samsung dryer error code de (DC)

This error code (in Samsung washing machines) should signal that the door is not closed properly. However, it may occur when it is. In other words, if you see the code and the door seems to be closed perfectly well, the system is viewing it as open for some reason. It happens when power fails to pass from the door interlock to the rest of the machine.

Even though there are no visible signs of the door not closing properly, most likely, there is a problem: the latch is not pushing into the interlock hard enough and fails to activate a lock element, which is responsible for locking the door. As a result, power fails to pass from one side of the door lock to the other. It happens when the latch or spring is damaged or worn, or the door is not positioned properly due to worn or damaged hinges.

Power may fail to go through even when the latch is shut. In this case, it is advisable to apply the WD-40 spray to the mechanism. It will soften, clean and lubricate the lock parts and provide a better contact between them. Sometimes the error can be cleared by pushing the door up and down.

This is what is called ‘the heating error’, which is typical of gas dryers.

  • Disconnect the dryer;
  • Open the gas supply cut-off valve;
  • Check the wiring and connections on the gas valve coils;
  • Repair or replace the wire harness (if it is faulty or damaged);
  • Address a professional technician and have the heating system checked.

For electric dryers, it’s this:

  • Check the house circuit breaker (tripped or not);
  • Make sure the 240V power supply is on;
  • Disconect the dryer and check the wiring and connections on the heating element. Reconnect/replace them, if necessary;
  • Make sure the heating element is not faulty or damaged. If it is, replace it.

This code indicates a depressed button. Check all the buttons and free the ones that have gotten stuck, if any. If the buttons are all right, but the error is there, the control panel switches need to be replaced. Remove the circuit board and replace faulty switch elements (they are not expensive). If necessary, call a technician and have the element tested and repaired.

Samsung dryer error code t0

Samsung dryer error code t0

The t10 code means that the thermistor is bad.

Disconnect the dryer from the mains and check the thermistor for continuity. Make sure it measures around 10,000 ohms at a room temperature of 77 F. if the continuity is normal, check the wire harness for damage and replace it if necessary. Replace the thermistor if it reads more than 40,000 ohms. If none of the elements that you have checked is faulty, replace the main control board.

Samsung dryer error code e9

Samsung dryer error code e9

There is no information relating the “e9” code to this type of dryer. If it appears, try resetting the machine by plugging/unplugging it. Maybe the control board needs a reboot. Also, this may be due to a blockage in the household line. Try disconnecting the vent line and restarting the device. If the error appears again, take the unit apart and clean it.

If gas/electric SmartCare dryers, the “e9” fault code indicates a problem in the control board. Disconnect it from the mains or switch it off and wait for 5 minutes. If the code does not go away, check the input voltage: it should be within 105-130 VAC range. If it is, the control board needs to be replaced.

PROBLEMSOLUTION
Doesn’t run.• Make sure the door is latched shut.
• Be sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical outlet.
• Check the home’s circuit breaker and fuses.
• Press the Start/Pause button again if the door is opened during the cycle.
• Empty the water in the condensed water tank.
• Clean the filter case.
Doesn’t heat.• Check the home’s circuit breaker and fuses.
• Select a heat setting other than Cool Air.
• Check the case filter and condenser and clean them if necessary.
• Dryer may have moved into the cool-down phase of the cycle.
Doesn’t dry.• Check all of the above, plus...
• Do not overload. 1 wash load = 1 dryer load.
• Sort heavy items from lightweight items.
• Large, bulky items like blankets or comforters may require repositioning to ensure even drying.
• Check that the dryer is draining property to extract adequate water from the load.
• Load may be too small to tumble properly. Add a few towels.
• Clean the filter case.
• Clean the Condenser.
• Check if the cooling air vent is blocked.
Is noisy.• Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails, etc. Remove promptly.
• Be sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the installation instruction.
• It is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of air moving through the dryer drum and fan.
Dries unevenly.• Seams, pockets, and other similarly heavy areas may not be completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level. This is normal. Select the Extra Dry setting if desired.
• If one heavy item is dried with a lightweight load, such as one towel with sheets, it is possible that the heavy item will not be completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level. Sort heavy items from lightweight items for best drying results.
Has an odour.• Household odors from painting, varnishing, strong cleaners, etc. may enter the dryer with the surrounding room air. This is normal as the dryer draws the air from the room, heats it, pulls it through the tumbler, and exhausts it outside.
• When these odors linger in the air, ventilate the room completely before using the dryer.
Shuts off before load is dry• Dryer load is too small. Add more items or a few towels and restart the cycle.
• Dryer load is too large. Remove some items and restart the dryer.
