I have a Samsung dryer, model DV210AEW/XAA, which stops

Customer Question

I have a Samsung dryer, model DV210AEW/XAA, which stops running after two to three minutes on timed dry. Example: Start at 40 minutes and dryer drum starts rotating as normal, then at 38 minutes unit shuts off and plays the end-cycle chimes. The front display does NOT show any error codes. It does not heat during this time. I have checked and cleaned out the dryer vent tube and verified that air is able to flow without issue while the dryer is running. Recently replaced the heating element, thermal fuse and high limit thermostat due to dryer not heating, and then noticed the unit stopped running after a few minutes. Replaced main power control board, but the issue still persists.

You need to check the moisture sensors on the unit see if they are plugged in and not broken and check the wiring from them to the board as well. Secondly try to run the unit in a TIMED dry mode and see if it runs the cycle if so then you know it is a moisture sensor issue for sure.

I am not sure about this one and it may take a bit of time to sort through it, let me see if another tech has any thoughts on it.
