Door-Related Errors

If your dryer door is not closing properly, it could be because the door was not initially closed properly, something is caught on the door preventing it from closing, or the latch is broken. You will likely see dC, dE, dF, do, d0, 1 DC, or 1 dF display on your digital screen. While troubleshooting your Samsung dryer problems, look for the most obvious causes first. If it is the latch that is broken, you will have to contact a Wizard Appliance to replace the latch.

Frequency Errors

Voltage Errors

If your Samsung dryer is not working because of a problem with the voltage being supplied to the appliance, you will see 9C1, 9E, 2E, or 9E1 displayed on your screen. One of the most common reasons why this Samsung dryer code error occurs is because the machine is plugged into an extension cord and not directly into the electrical outlet. If you are using an extension cord, remove it and ensure your machine is properly plugged into a working electrical outlet. Check to make sure the circuit breaker has not been tripped and your appliance’s cord is intact.

This Samsung dryer code is also commonly seen when people buy their appliances from another country because power grids and regulations differ from one nation to another. If you cannot troubleshoot your voltage error code, contact us at Appliance Wizards to inspect your machine and power source.

Heating Errors

Heating errors occur if the lint screen or exhaust vent are clogged because without proper airflow, the warm air will get trapped in the dryer. If you see HC, 1 HC, HC4, or hE displayed as a Samsung dryer code on your digital display, check the vent and lint trap to ensure they are clean. If the error persists, contact us at Appliance Wizard.
