Question about Danby Dryers
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.

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.
