I can't find this Samsung Dryer model in the model look up. I'm in need of an igniter. I was told the samsung part no. is DC47-00022A but the 2 that I have found on your site, AP4042957 and 33002789, according to your site does not cross to fit my dryer. What is the correct igniter part number?

If the first 2 digits in the serial number of the dryer is between 10 and 59 then you would use igniter part number 4391996. If the first 2 digits are 60 and higher then use igniter part number 33002789. The serial # for my dryer is 28790423YB. We replaced the igniter with one that looks like the one you are suggesting and it only lasted 1 week. Prior to that the one we pulled from our dryer looks more like the one for the 60 series...any thoughts as to why that would happen?

There seems to be 2 different igniters for this dryer and I am trying to figure out which is needed.

This is a follow up to a previous question i asked on here regarding my ignitor glowing red and will not ignite unless i blow on the ignitor to get the flame started. I did replace the ignitor as you instructed b/c you thought it may have had some cracks in it and the blowing allowed it to to get completley hot.. In any case i swapped out the old ignitor for a new ignitor and it seemed to work at the time of the swap out (i.e. it would ignite on its own without having to blow on it) and I tested this about 5 times to make sure and all seemed good. However the next night when we used the dryer I smelled gas again and it turns out its doing the same exact thing- glowing and no ignition unless i blow on it again! Im not sure if it could be the coils or the whole gas valve? Or something else? thanks in advance

I do not see this model on your list, but visually it appears to be a match. Could you please confirm, or direct me to the correct replacement? Thank you.

Hi, my dryer stopped working, the clothing that was put in there was wet. After that it stopped working. The washer works properly but it won't heat up. I look inside and the pilot(ignitor) is off. When i start a cycle the drum spins, but nothing else happens. I don't see a spark or flame. Is the pilot (ignitor) supposed to be always on, or will only spark when the cycle is started. This a gas dryer. I am clueless as what could be the problem, but by reading at the previous posts i kind of have an idea now. I will appreciate any help on this matter. Regards. Ed.

Our dryer wont get hot. I took the front panel off to investigate the problem, I checked the continuity in the igniter and also in the flame sensor finding none in both. I then checked the continuity in the high limit thermostat and the thermal fuse, they both appeared to be good. My next test might not be highly suggested, but I started the dryer to see what would happen. The igniter glowed for only a few seconds then sparked. After attempting the test again the igniter just sparked but didnt glow. Do I need to replace both the igniter and the flame sensor or should I start with just the igniter? Is it really possible that both could go out at the same time? Thanks for your time!

The problem is that when we initially start the dryer, it heats for about 10 seconds then shuts down the flame. Per a suggestion read on your questions page, we jumped the high limit thermostat, and it ran for several minutes. So, we figured that was the problem and replaced the switch. However, the problem still exists. It will burn for about ten seconds then shut down. What else could be the problem?

Following is a copy of the correspondence we had last week. I received the ignitor and was unpacking it and the ignitor portion broke into three pieces (darn) anyway. When we opened the dryer to install it, we put the old one back in to make sure that the igniter was the problem. It turns that it did turn on and the dryer started, but, it only heated about 10 seconds and then turned off. So, back to the internet! We found documentation about the high limit sensor. So, we jumped it and that works. It runs without turning off. So, I will order one and have my neighbor install it. Thanks for your help.

Our dryer no longer puts out hot, or warm air. Last time this happened, it was the ignitor that was bad. I would like to replace this myself rather than paying for a service call. Is there anything else that could be causing our problem or is this the most logical thing to replace?
