I DO NOT work on Samsung—But– on other brands you could be looking at—You may only be getting 115 volts to dryer [I take it its electric?] , bad neutral [in electrical connection], door switch, control board, motor, motor controller, idler switch, burnt wire-either to motor or in harness, push to start switch–may be in the whole control panel,  there are many, many things it could be, something very simple to something very complex. I would advise to find a FACTORY AUTHORIZED service person for Samsung to check it out.

Model DV328AER/XAA

I have had this dryer fro a little over a year.  It has worked flawlessly until last night when it ran for about 5 minutes and quit.

Now, it gets power.   You can select bewteen dryer features and adjust all the various settings, but when you push the start button, it clicks like it is turning on, but nothing happens.

The vent looks clean and the drum turns without resistance.

Any ideas?  Seems like others have had similar problems, but I cannot find any answers or suggestions.
