The on/off switch is combined with the door release switch in one item - part number 154145 (a little over £20) and my problem was the door interlock bit had failed. The following worked for me :
Plug out, remove top panel, and open door + look up at switch panel - you see 5 slots under the switch panel (the 2 outer ones are mostly covered by the main front panel). Start at either side and work across, using as wide-bladed a screwdriver as will fit across the slot width : put a wood block under blade as a support and lever bottom of panel towards front - each has a plastic pin behind pointing towards the rear, held by a spring clip. Each will pop clear and when all are unclipped you rotate the panel outwards from the bottom edge, taking the timer knob and its drive linkage with it. To get switch out I removed the door and the screws around the main front panel - one is hidden behind a cover plug below the access port (to gain access to bottom screws on main panel, lever the bottom panel outwards along its top edge).

SOURCE: How do I turn off
We had a similar problem with our Bosch dryer... every now and then when we were using the dryer an alarm would go off and it would stop drying. We checked through the manual and it had no information. Then one day I noticed that there was a flap on the end of the exhaust vent outside the house. As an experiment I propped the flap open so that it never fully closes. Now we never have the problem with the dryer. I suspect what was happening was that as the dryer was reaching the end of the drying cycle it was pumping out less and less exhaust to the point where it was too weak to open the vent flap, and the build up of exhaust in the ductwork triggered the alarm. I don't know if that's what's causing the alarm with your dryer but its worth checking.

YOUR DRYER HAS A FUSE AND NEEDS TO BE CHECKED. SEE IF IT IS LOCATED SOMEWHERE WHERE THE POWER CORD COMES IN AT. IT SHOULD BE CLOSE TO THE MAIN POWER COMING IN OR MAYBE EVEN IN THE CONTROL PANEL AREA.
