The tS error code will flash on a samsung dryer when the thermistor is defective or shorted. A thermistor can fail several different ways. In most cases when these dryer thermistors fail it’s under normal use or “Wear & Tear” per say..
Unplug your appliance before you attempt any repair.
If you’re extremely handy and know how to use a volt/ohm meter, you will most likely be able to fix the tS error code yourself. Unfortunately the manufacture did not make the thermistor easy to test. The machine will need to be taken apart to test the thermistor.
Once inside you will see the dryer has a thermistor and it has two wires on it. Set the meter to read resistance and check the thermistor with one wire off or both to be safe. If the thermistor reads over 40,000 ohms, replace it because it’s faulty. Samsung dryer thermistors should read roughly 10,000 ohms at room temp. If yours tests good, that would indicate a wiring issue or a faulty control.
Most commonly on these dryers you will find a loose or corroded connection. Usually in the end of a female plug. Clean the contacts really good. Make sure the wires counting the two components are not broken or kinked in any way.
Most of these dryers have two screws holding the top down. Once those screws are removed, the top will slide back and off. Now the front control board can be removed by lifting up on the plastic clips. Once the control panel along the front is off you will see the hidden screws that hold the front panel in place. The two screws inside the front by the lint filter will need to be removed before the front will fall forward enough to unplug the light switch. Once you have made it this far the bulkhead will be removable and then the drum. Working on these samsung appliances really is not very difficult. Especially if you have a little bit of help from someone who knows them inside and out.
