Cleaning the Heat Exchanger on a Samsung Dryer.

Last modified : May 02. 2019

When you have finished running a cycle in your Samsung Dryer and find that the load hasn’t dried properly, even after cleaning the lint filter and vent lines and also ensuring you have only put in a small load, it will probably mean that the heat exchanger will need a clean.


It is recommended to clean the heat exchanger at least once a month. Some dryer’s even have an indicator that lights up to let you know when it needs cleaning.


Below are instructions on how to take out the heat exchanger and clean it.

1 Gently press the top part of the outer cover (A) to open.

2 Unlock the levers (B) .

3 Remove the inner cover (C) .

4 Clean the heat exchanger with the provided cleaning brush or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Take care not to bend or damage the heat exchanger fins when cleaning. This may lead to a decrease in drying performance.
