SOURCE: is it dead

This could be caused by different things: Does it make a motor running sound when you try to dry, but the basket won't turn? If so, it's probably a broken or jumped belt, which would require a fairly extensive disassembly to repair.

But It can also be caused by the "door closed" interlock switch, located somewhere in the door frame area, usually activated by a pin-like or tab protrusion on the inside door facing. Make sure the door is fully closed. If still no go, try and locate the switch and actuate it externally with a toothpick/straw (or anything that approximates the protrusion on the door that normally works it) with the door open and try the start button again. Still no joy, jumper the switch terminals to bypass the switch and try again. If it goes now, then it is a bad door switch.

It could also be a bad start switch, bad motor, or bad connection in the wiring to the switches, timer, and motor. All of the above require some disassembly to get at the components, and a Volt-Ohm Meter (VOM) woul be invaluable in locating the fault.

Dryers are fairly simple devices compared to other things, but the addition of programmed features has made them a little more complex, but once the component functions ae understood, they are not difficult to diagnose and hopefully repair. The biggest obstacle is learning how and what order to disassemble to access the parts,and then get it back together again in a proper fashion.

Hoe this shed some light on your problem and gives you some ideas to try. Good luck!

Call Danby Customer Service at 1-800-263-2629; The part costs $25 or so plus another $7 shipping. Better than getting it through a distributor, I was given a price of $40 through a local place.

SOURCE: running with no heat

Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components should be located inside the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty component. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My dryer is not producing heat? not drying clothes - all switches on


I'm not 100% positive, but I would say your heating element is out as being the most likely culprit especially if you have kids and do alot of laundry as I do.

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.
