Meghan Till asked 5 years ago
Our Samsung dryer, model No DV35OAEW/XAA will turn on but it won't dry anything. When I hit the start button, it clicks and then sits there. It's almost 8 years old. I'm trying to see if I should try to fix it or if it's not worth fixing. PS - I also have a Samsung washer that is leaking water into the pedestal. It happened after I cleaned the filter and now a little bit of water leaks out each time I run the cycle. It's model No wf350aw/xaa.

The door switch on your Samsung dryer should make a click noise, you may have a dryer door switch that is faulty. Try using a multimeter to check it.


A thermal fuse might be faulty also. This is a cheap part and can be replaced easily.


It may be an issue with the control panel. If the dryer simply clicks, there may be an issue with control board.

Also, with your leaking Samsung washer, if you recently cleaned the filter, most likely, it was not installed properly. Remove it and check the seal or o-ring on it to be sure it makes a seal when you reinstall.
