Help with samsung dryer
Hello! I have a samsung that doesn't want to work. First the heater element burnt. I figured out how to replace it. However, I didn't realize that a section of the element was touching the metal side of the housing. So when I turned it on, it tripped the breaker. So I tore it apart again and located the problem. Bent the wire away from the housing, reassembled, plugged it on, turned it on. Everything looks good until I bit start button. Then code "de" pops up. I looked this code up and apparently it is a door open code. The door seems fine. I done see the problem. So here's where I'm at.
Is there something actually wrong with the door hardware or did the element short create another problem?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We have a family of 5 and have mountains of laundry. The dryers been down for about 5 days now and the clothes piles are getting deep!
