If yuo are referring to the catch on the door, then undo all the scews holding the 2 halves of the door together, and prize apart, fit new door catch.
If you mean the door lock, then you will have to remove the top cover and right hand side panel to access the door lock.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

    There is no need to take any panels off . The mechanism has a retaining flange at the top. Simply remove the screw, slide the mechanism down and swing it out from the top. Replacement is the reverse.

How to adjust door on white knight tumble dryer


Micro switch may need adjustment as when pressure applied to door the dryer operates. It may be the operating arm (if there is one) needs to be bent out slightly. I switch has a button operator then maybe an adjustment of switch position will fix. If not try gluing a small piece of plastic to the door where the operator pin is and this may work.

Hotpoint tdc 30 door catch will not push into door switch when I close door, have taken switch out and it fits into catch manually but not when it is installed so door will not close to activate drying


I would say that the problem is due to the door handle spring being weak or broken.
Purchase a door handle kit, and it should solve the problem, if it does not, then you need a new door switch.
Hope this helps with your problem.

My door for a hotpoint ctd40 tumble drier wont stay closed. The spring latch seems ok but not holding dooe closed. Any ideas since it dont say anything in my manual about it and its 2 yrs old. cheers andy


Hi andy.

the fault is likely to be in the roller catch mechanism. Hotpoint have modified these. Part Number is C00257618.

It includes both door latch and catch.
If you have problems obtaining one please email me on: aardvark.repairs@btinternet.com or call me on 01733 307019

Hotpoint tumble dryer CTD00 timer


It is not a difficult job...the thing to keep you out of trouble is to make sure you get the right timer switch, then remove one wire at a time.
Remove one wire from the old timer and put it on the new timer, there is not that many wires for your timer.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Dryer won't heat. I just replaced the felt seals on the drum, the door switch didn't work but after I unplugged it & reconnected it worked. Could it be the doorswitch? I replaced the high temp switch a...


A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to get to the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter
or
If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly

Unscrew all screws that hold the 2 halves of the door together, then with a screwdriver or similar, prize apart the 2 halves of the door, be careful the door glass does not fall onto the floor.
Fit new parts, reassemble door, and hey presto!!!

Very difficult to explain with out pictures, the pin should go through the spring it really is a matter of fiddling until you get it right or go back to where you bought it from and ask them how it goes.
