Re: Hotpoint CTD00 Door Catch Replacement
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
