Samsung Dryer Shuts Off After 2 Minutes
« on: June 05, 2020, 08:03:26 PM »

Hi everyone,
I have a Samsung dryer model: DV42H5400 that shuts off after 2 minutes on a sensor setting. Manual settings are fine and continue to dry.

So far I have tested and/or replaces the following:
1. Thermostat and temperature fuses - replaced, the issue still persists.
2. Removed the duct, cleaned, and tested the dryer without the duct being attached - it still shuts off after 2 minutes.
3. Placed it in Smart Install Mode and checked the moisture sensors with a wet wipe and they were fine. I also checked them for continuity and that was fine.
4. In Smart Mode, I checked the motor and heater and the OK message was shown. I checked for continuity and that was fine too.

What am I missing? Everything I've seen online so far is either the thermostat, temp fuse, or moisture sensors.

my first thought would be that it is a moisture sensor problem.
I do not have any tech data on this unit!!!!
You said you checked it but I do not know exactly how/what this check does.

I would disconnect the moisture sensor at the control board and give it a try.
Disconnecting here will check not only the sensor but the wires to the sensor.

If it still shuts off then odds are that it is a control board problem.
