Temperature knob broken on danby 5505 dryer

The temp knob broke on my dryer. I have pulled out the broken knob so I can see where the knob should connect to the dryer. The small hole in the back of the knob that connects to the dryer electric panel is cracked. I have ordered the new knobs but it seems like something is missing.The knob will not lock into place to connect to the electric dryer panel on the inside. I even ordered the electronic panel that connects to the knob to ensure that it wasnt broken but it looks exactly like the one in the dryer. What am I missing that will connect the knob to the electrical panel on the inside of the dryer that will allow me to change the temp settings?

Without anymore info. is sounds like the timer motor on the setting controller (the main knob) is bad. The entire timer/control part is usually pricey but if its made to where you can just change the timer motor that will be less. If possible check the timer motor with a meter for continuity to be sure. the parts supplier will usually help you with this, if they are worth a shit.

SOURCE: pulled knob off 70 series Kenmore dryer.

There is a small clip that holds the knob in place. It sounds like the clip may be missing, or the shaft on the switch is broken off, causing the knob not to stay in place. The part number for the clip is 688805. The push-to-start button part number is 3395385 (if required). You can view close up drawings of these parts at appliancepartspros.com. Just use the "Search by Part Number" feature.

There is an excellent exploded view diagram of the dryer console at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you provided as "110.66722694". Look under the "Top and Console" heading for items 4 (retaining clip) and 5 (push-to-start switch). NOTE: item 4 is misidentified under the description, but the part number is accurate.

The reason I'm referencing two separate sites is because the first site I mentioned offers better prices, but does not show any illustrations of your dryer model. They DO carry the part numbers, however, because these parts are the same on several different models. The second website shows all the illustrations. I apologize if this is confusing.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. If you require additional assistance with replacing parts, also let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

BELT BROKEN


.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

I can not get the temp knob to transfer form cool


most likely you'll have to replace the plastic tab on the back of your controls its easy to do. You'll have to take out the radio and temp. Control unit you'll see where the cable hooks in its probably broke. For a temporary fix you can unhook the cable at the floor. Its on the drivers side by the gas pedal.

Danby Dryer too hot


First of all, check to see if you have a hose going outside that is fully clear of lint from beginning to end. then check to see if your heat is staying the same on a empty load run machine empty, then turn your thermostat to cool after it heats up and see if the temp went down to see if working properly.

A funny smell and i think it might be the temperature


Adjust the knob to 3 or 4 which would be the midway temperature.

0 would probably be off or close to it. The 7 would be coldest and freeze water.

If this is manual defrost you need to turn it off and defrost it. The frost will keep it from getting cold enough. The buildup is normal from humid warm air when opening the door. You might get a standalone fridge / freezer thermometer (about $5) to tell you what temperature is. The smell may be food spoiling from warm temperature.

Room temperature has not changed since hooking up new portable a/c


This may sound dumb but ( 1) Do you have the warm air from the unit to the exterior of the space? If the condenser is in the space your putting the heat your trying to remove right back into the space. ( 2 ) There should be an air supply and an air return in the space only. With that there should be a temperature difference of 16 to 20 degrees between the supply and return. ( 3 )A 1 ton unit usually will cool approximately 400 square feet. ( 4 ) It may take a while to pull the space temp down due to pulling the heat and moisture from the ceiling, walls, and floor. This could take 6 hours or more the first time you use the system in a space.

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Temperature control


I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
