I have a Samsung model DV520AEP. Had the continuous run issue. Only thing that would stop the drum from spinning was opening the door or unplugging the machine. And after letting it sit unplugged for up to an hour, the problem still came right back. Then I tried this, and so far, so good (it's still the same day though): with the door opened, I pressed and held the "pause button" while shutting the door. The dryer did not start spinning and now seems to work as it should. To be honest, I can't remember for sure whether I had the front panel on or off at the time I tried that trick, but I think it was on. Fingers crossed the fix will last.
