Danby stackable dryer-resetting thermostat
This is for 'FYI,!
My neighbor and I happen to have the same washer/dryer combo by Danby.
Mine is about 8-9 years old. I have had no problems (knock on wood)!
In fact, I prefer it over my Asko at another home.
Recently , my neighbors dryer quit drying. The dryer tumbled, but no heat.
She called repair people-was told it needed a new belt (why-it tumbled), but that did not work...
After several trips, she called someone else. Seems nobody know how to work on a Danby because they are not made anymore. Did not have a good history, I think.
Anyway, she finally got an honest man! He told her nothing was wrong with her machine-she uses dryer sheets, which clog the dryer filter system with very fine lint from the dryer softening sheet. The lint slowed the air flow, raising the temperature in the dryer. The safety in the thermostat shut the heating element/system.
All the repairman did was clean the lint out and press a 'reset' button!
He said Danby is one of the few brands that has a reset button, that when this happens in most other brands you have to buy a new thermostat....
I tried looking up info/where this button is, but cannot find a picture.
Can anyone tell me more about location?
