If a Samsung dryer does not heat, check to be sure that the unit is turned on and the power cord is fully plugged into a working outlet. Reset tripped circuit breakers, and replace blown fuses. Test the heating element for continuity using an ohmmeter, and replace it if necessary. If the problem persists, check whether the blower wheel is blocked or broken, and clean or replace it as required.

If the dryer is loud or noisy during operation, examine the drive belt and drive motor to see if they are defective. If the pace of the noise is fast, inspect the blower wheel to see if there is something caught inside. A worn out blower wheel is irreparable and should be replaced. Examine the drum bearing, and replace it if worn out.

If a Samsung dryer takes too long to dry, inspect the heating element and cycling thermostats, and replace any of the defective parts accordingly. If these repair methods do not remedy the issue, contact a Samsung professional for assistance.
