Question about Dryers
My hotpoint tdc30 tumble dryer, start button doesnt stay when it is pressed. It keeps coming off once the hand is removed from the start button. Is it a start button problem or thermostat problem?

pull end caps off just grab at top of plastic and pull towards you remove the 2 screws underneath lift console up and roll back next to timer is a small control bd to right of that are 2 relays 1 with red wires for element and 1 with blue wires for motor first try switching the relays they are identical and will work for either 1 ..try if works replace relay ..if still not working suspect control bd

SOURCE: Tumble Dryer won't start
assuming what you say you checked is correct and working then the next place to look is the start relay, located behind the front timer control panel, this sis more often than not a cubed shape box made of clear plastic with about 6 spade connectors on it, look for burn marks inside it, replace if looks damaged, do not attempt to bypass or short out to test, as you will blow the timer or and control circuit board and cause extensive damage

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
