What Does DC Mean on a Samsung Dryer?

What Does DC Mean on a Samsung Dryer

If your appliance is displaying the DC error, then there are apparently problems down to the heater at the back.

To start with, you will need to reset the appliance and act judging from the results of these actions.

  • First, turn the dial to the “off” position.
  • Now, turn it once again so that it is at the six o’clock position
  • Press the start button three times.
  • At this point, you will have to turn dial one click clockwise
  • Press start button three times
  • Eventually, you will need to turn the dial to the “off” position.

If you have successfully performed all the steps above, the dryer is reset.

Now, it is time to test it. Do you notice there is still no heat? Is there thу DC error? If yes, then you will have to get to the heater and work with it. Remove the metal cover on the back of the appliance. Locate the heater in the bottom right corner.

Can you see two thermostats?

Use a test meter to make sure the thermostat on the right works fine.

If there is nothing wrong with it, you will have to test the device on the left. This is a thermistor. The test meter should show around 7 kilo-ohms.

If either the left or the right thermostat is defective, the heater will have to be replaced on this. This step will return your dryer back to life (and heat).

If both the devices work fine, the problem is probably caused by the control board at the top, which is a more serious issue.
