I have a Danby front loading dryer and unfortunatly someone tried to pull the door open when it was locked shut until they broke the handle off. Is it possible to order a new door with handle to replace broken one? Thank you.

This has happened on some of the front load commercial dryers in one of my building. The door alignment pin that mates with the latch was not meeting in the center of the latch. On one of the dryers the latch pin broke, I replaced the pin and thought I had fixed the problem. After a second parts search and realizing how much work it would be to open the front of the dryer to replace the hinge, I opened the door just enough to clear the housing and lifted up on the latch end of the door to try to bend the hinges back up. I had to pull up with more force than expected, but the door alignment was better and the latch mated properly. I then got out my RED Sharpie and wrote on the top of the, "PLEASE DON'T LEAN ON THE DOOR" The problem has not returned.
if you have it on time dry and it doesn't count down the timer is bad but it should stop when you open the door unless you have a broken door switch too,just open the door and push in on the switch with your finger,it should make a clicking sound,if not the door switch is also broke,if you have the timer on auto or more or less then it won't move without heat.on auto the heat comes on when the dryer reaches temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance a little,then the heat starts again and the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry by using a sensor instead of time.
check to see if the belt broke,there's a switch on the belt pulley on some models,if the belt snaps from to large a load the pulley doesn't have any tension on it and the switch opens so the dryer won't run.when you put the belt back on the pulley sets the switch so power will go tough it again and the dryer will run,also check the door switch,if someone shut the door to hard and broke the switch the dryer won't run.these are the easy things to check without needing a meter.hopeit helps,if you're in mass. and need a tech you can call peter de's appliance 781-438-9442 very good techs
that is the motor,try this,open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other hand while someone else pushes the start button,if by moving the drum the motor does start to run the motor is bad,also you have the neptune style maytag and i don't think there's a belt switch in the model so if the belt broke it could be jammed in the motor,try spinning the drum to help it start if that doesn't work unplug the dryer,open the door,remove the two screws that hold the door on and then remove the other two screws on the opposite side,grab the top of the front panel and pull forwards to remove the front panel,you can leave the door on or lift it up and pull out to remove the door,now look to see if the belt broke,if the belt is rapped around the center of the drum then it isn't broke and it will be the motor,that's a good dryer and worth changing the motor on it.
Trying to help here. There was probably a switch latch at the place were you push your button to open it. When they pulled the latch it broke the contact signal plate. Now the dryer doesn't know when the door is closed. So it want start.
Check your door latch.Shut the door and pull it open. If it pulls open very easily then you need to change the door latch. Make sure the door is not sprung
If it is then put a small screwdrive in front of the latches inside the door and push very gently in degrees. Then remove the screw driver and test it. Do this over and over (very gently) until it closes properly.
Or you can remove the hinges off the door and straigten them.

if the door is not tight as in you can move it slightly when its closed,the door strike and door catch need replacing and can be done without dryer disassembly at the front door,open the dryer door and in the lower right hand corner theres a small plunger switch push this in with your finger you will hear a click,then start dryer with door open being careful,this test will rule out switch problem,then just replace door parts
