Samsung dryer won't heat
We've had this dryer for a few years. It's been reliable up until now. Okay, let me start off by saying, AFTER I started working on it, my wife decided to let me know that it had standing water in it and she decided to use it anyway before it tore up. I'm not sure what effect that would have had, but anyway:
The dryer will not heat up. At first it ran for hours without even getting warm. I took it apart, read the heating element for continuity (also took it out and gave it a lookover), also the 2 thermostats on the element housing, and also the thermistor and thermostat on the blower housing. Everything read fine. The blower is blowing hard out of the vent so that should be fine.
The unit has 120 going in both leads on the pig tail.
The only thing that has changed after messing around with it, is that it will not run continuously now. It runs for a few seconds and gives me HE error, which is supposed to indicate a lint clog or thermistor problem. I have traced every inch of exhaust and the thermistor is reading 11K ohms.
Where do I go from here? Please help!!
