Samsung dryer replacement elements have gotten expensive but there are alternatives that cost a lot less. If you need JUST the element (not the whole housing along with the thermostats), you can buy part # DC47-00019A and if you want the entire assembly, DC97-14486A replaces the higher priced Samsung version.
These elements represent an oddity that we hope will grow more common in time- the elements that come from S. Korea actually cost more than the aftermarket versions made in the USA! There are also Chinese versions that cost less as well… for now.
Almost all the Samsung dryers we know of use the DC47-00019A element. If you need the element along with the thermostats, you might as well get the complete element kit.
These elements have been going out at a rapid rate. We’re not sure if that comes from a design flaw or if there are just that many Samsung dryers in the market now.
