I figure that the heating element is bad. My Samsung HE Clothes dryer stopped drying one day and the clothes were ice cold and wet after several minutes into the cycle.
Once we had cleared it all out and reattached the plastic crescent to the lint screen with some fine metal wire, the dryer worked absolutely fine. I have a Samsung model and it had stopped generating heat. Can i make that assumption due to these circumstances? Never had a problem like before.

Since I have very long thin hands, I reached a couple of fingers deep into the slot and managed to find the piece — both plastic tabs had broken off that attached it to the screen.

The high limit switch is out.
Test the connectors per the user guide that was found on the back panel of the dryer. Worked fine for 1 week then exact same problem again. Any ideas?
So pull off the other wires for the two switches more towards you towards the rear of the dryer. Changed out all three components.
