This Danby dryer was given to me by my sister-in-law who hardly ever used it. It seems to work perfectly except, approximately every two minutes it stops then restarts after a couple seconds. Inside is spotless, wiring is correct per the manual, lint trap is cleaned every use, vent pie is clear, and this occurs in all the drying modes and with various size loads.
Re: Danby Dryer DCD5505 starts and stops continuosly
If the clothes are dry you may have that occur, but otherwise I am trying to figure out if it is the heat sensor. We have one that acts similiarly, and it does cut out if it detects the clothes are dry. Our unit is five years old, so I am trying to find a rep;lacement sensor switch and see if that makes a difference. Good luck.

make sure the bulb is good.the internal wireing needs to be checked for any disconnected plugs or broken wires.you can alos check a small white thermal fuse on the blower wheel housing located behind the rear panel on the left side of the machine.if this is bad you will not have any power to turn the unit on.you can disconnect the two small wires from the fuse and connect them together and then try and start your machine.
remove the front panel(s) and the top panel. the belt will go around the drum to a drive wheel at the bottom. the belt turns the drum. You will have to route the belt around the drum and go either in front of or behind the drum to get the belt installed correctly.
Sounds like you may have a lint clog somewhere either in the dryer, or if if you have it vented in the vent. The limit switch is tripping due to an overheat situation. The dryer must have proper airflow to function properly.
