Error codes for Samsung Dryer

Samsung Dryer Error Codes

These error code explanations can help you diagnose a problem with your Samsung Dryer.

Your Samsung tumble dryer isn't working. Why? Well, there are codes on the display console that tell you why; but, of course, you've lost your user manual.

This chart will help you decipher the Samsung dryer error codes and perhaps even save some money by preventing a visit from the repair engineers. The first step before you do anything else to get the dryer back in operational mode is to unplug the dryer and wait at least 30 seconds before reconnecting. Sometimes just doing this will help the dryer's internal motherboard reset and begin to function properly.

tS

Thermistor (temperature sensor) is defective (electrically shorted)

Issue:
Unplug the dryer and use a volt/ohm meter to test the resistance of the thermistor. If the resistance is more than 40,000 ohms, replace the thermistor. If the resistance is 10,000 ohms, replace the wire harness, if damaged. If the wire harness is okay, replace the electronic control board.

tO

Thermistor is defective (electrically open)

Issue:
Unplug the dryer and use a volt/ohm meter to check the resistance of the thermistor. The thermistor should measure around 10K ohms (10,000 ohms) of resistance at room temperature (77 degrees). If the resistance of the thermistor is higher than 40K ohms, replace it. If the resistance of the thermistor is normal, check the wire harness and replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness is okay, replace the electronic control board.

Door is open

Issue:
Unplug the dryer and check for loose or damaged wiring connections in the door switch circuit. Reconnect the wire harness if loose or disconnected. Replace the wire harness if damaged. Replace the door switch if damaged or defective.
Advice:
When this flashes, the repair can be as simple as closing the dryer door firmly. But, the door may need a bit more attention to function properly. Begin by cleaning the door switch/lock to remove any lint or residue that is keeping it from closing properly. Use a bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab to clean the connectors. If that doesn't work: Unplug the dryer and check for loose or damaged wire connections in the door lock/switch circuit. Reconnect the wires if loose or disconnected or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the door switch is damaged, it should be replaced.

Power supply frequency is out of range

Issue:
Have an electrician or your electrical power supplier check the frequency of your electrical power supply. If the dryer is getting the 60 Hz power it requires, replace the electronic control board.
Advice:
You can test the voltage of the dryer with a voltage meter. If the dryer is getting the 60 Hz power it requires, the electronic control board is faulty and must be replaced. This requires an engineer. An engineer should check the frequency of your electrical power supply when they come for the repair appointment.

Od

Excessive dry time

Issue:
Unplug the dryer and inspect the moisture sensor bar wiring connections. Reconnect any loose wires. Replace the wire harness if damaged. Replace the moisture sensor bar if damaged.
Advice:
First, empty the lint filter. Clean the moisture sensor inside the dryer drum with a bit of rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. If you use dryer sheets, they coat the sensor with residue and extend drying time by tricking the sensor. Take time to be sure that dryer ducts and vents are open and clog free. Excess lint impedes the air flow and makes dryer hard. Finally, unplug the dryer and inspect the moisture sensor bar wiring connections. Reconnect any loose wires and replace the wiring or sensor bar if damaged.
