How do you fix a Samsung dryer error yourself?

Your Samsung dryer is malfunctioning and shows an error code. For example, when the lint trap is clogged or the door doesn't close properly. Luckily, there is a possible solution for every Samsung dryer error. This means you don't have to call a technician immediately. Here, you can read here what each error code means and what to do if your Samsung dryer is malfunctioning.

The lint trap or condenser of your Samsung dryer may be clogged. Clean these as follows:

  2. Wipe the area where the lint trap is located with a dust cloth and gently rinse the dust sensor.
  3. Put the lint trap back in place.
  4. Clean the condenser grille with a vacuum brush.
