Dryer Codes Descriptions

Samsung has made it very easy to identify any problems with your clothes dryer by installing the error code display. Here is what these codes mean.

do – Door Open

An open dryer door will prevent your dryer from working. Once the door is opened, the appliance will stop working. If you are certain you pushed the door firmly closed, check a bit closer.

There may be an item of clothing caught in the door or there may be something covering the space where the doors connect. Lint can build up in there and block the door from closing. If that doesn’t work, there may be damage to the connectors. It’s important to call a dryer technician like the ones at Alpha Tech Appliance to check that there is nothing seriously wrong.

dF – Door Circuit Failure

This Samsung dryer error code is more serious than an opened door. You can troubleshoot yourself by unplugging the dryer and looking for anything that looks out of place. 

It could be a loose or broken connection, damage to wiring, or damage to the door lock. If the issue seems easy enough, connect the wire yourself, or call your technician.

Od – Over Dry

This error is not usually something that requires a repair technician. This error code means that the dryer is not sensing that the clothes are already dry. You can start by making sure that the lint trap is empty and functioning.

It can also mean that the moisture sensor isn’t working. There may be a bit of plastic or some other item that is wet may be stuck to the sensor. Check the sensor and make sure that nothing is covering it.

FE – Fan Error

This actually means there is a problem with the power supply. The fan needs to be working for the appliance to work. Make sure the fan is operating and not blocked.

Remove any clothing or lint that may be causing the power to fail. If there seems to be nothing obviously wrong, it is best to contact your technician for this issue. Don’t put your hand inside the fan without cutting the power supply.

tS or tO – Temperature Issues

Samsung error codes starting with T indicate there is a problem with the temperature. There could be a build-up of lint or film that can come from the dryer sheets.

Check your lint screen and the vents to make sure they are open and not clogged. Also, check the sensor that measures the temperature. Make sure they are clean and not damaged or blocked.

hE or HE – Gas Dryer Heating Error

This error code means your Samsung clothes dryer is getting too hot. An overheating dryer will often stop. This is often caused by a clogged vent or lint screen. It could also be a blockage in your gas supply.

Clean out the lint trap and make sure the vents are cleared. If the problem is your thermistor, it will display incorrect temperatures. Make sure to turn off the gas before troubleshooting, just in case.

hE or HE – Electric Dryer Heating Error

Just like your gas dryer, the HE error code will show if your electrical dryer is overheating. Check the circuit breakers to make sure that nothing has tripped. 

Clean the lint trap and the vents. If it still isn’t working, unplug the dryer and call your technician. They may need to replace your thermistor or the vents may be damaged.

bE – Button Error

If your Samsung dryer is not working and you see this code, it likely means that a button or two are stuck. Try pushing each one to determine which ones are sticking and see if you can get them moving again. 

You can use a soft damp cloth and wipe the buttons down. There may be soap, fabric softener, or even something that has come off of your hands causing the buttons to jam.

Et – Control Board

This is an indication there is a problem with the electrical control board. Unplug the dryer for several minutes to try and reset the control board.

If the error code comes back after plugging it back in, you may need to replace the control board.

9C1, 9E, 2E, 9E1 – Voltage or Power Problems

You will see these error codes when there’s an issue with the power supply. This often happens if the dryer is sharing a circuit with your washer or other appliances. 

You can check that your dryer is getting power and also getting enough power. Your dryer should not be connected with an extension cord. Call your technician to have a look at the issue.
