I have a Danby Clothes Dryer Model #DCD5505W-1. The dryer works but will not heat. Is there a reset button? If so, where is it located?

More than likely the heating element has burned out or the control circuit board. There is no such switch as a reset.

Danby Dryer DCD5505W-1 has a "ka-thumk" noise with each rotation of the drum. The noise is coming from the lower part of the dryer. Roller support wheel problem? Belt?

The model did not return any information,so I am unable to supply you with any assistance there. The noise could be a roller, belt, foreign object in a loose baffle, idler pulley. Double check your model no. then reference the link provided,..... https://www.repairclinic.com/ for detailed info.

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 danby dryer keeps shutting off and turning on and the clothes take forever to dry

GOD IS STILL GOOD !!!! ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast: Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it) Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating. Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220, Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats. For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement. In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet. Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity. A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats. Read more :http://www.ehow.com/info_12203962_check-dryer-thermistor.html
