This is the motor trying to get up to top speed but it cant for some reason do it, some models will not run unless the button is pressed if the belt is broken (also,see above). Some folks try and trick the dryer into staying on by lodging something in between the switch and letting it dry, but the sad reality is the motor is probably shot and needs to be replaced. The switch itself is not the fault, all it does is start the motor up and then the secondary windings in it take over, if the motor is dragging it will not switch over to the run mode, it soon will die anyway.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Candy CIV60 Tumbledryer - Reverse Action not working?


this could be something caught in the blower housing fan blade but what it sounds like is the motor is going into thermal overload (overheating)

Candy civ 60 tumble dryer - on/off button does not seem to be wor


I had this problem too. I removed the top panel - it slides out (three screws at the top rear). This exposes the electrical wiring at the top front of the machine. ENSURE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE MAINS PLUG BEFORE YOU START. Three screws hold the button plate to the front panel. Slide off the top side pieces and remove the the three screws holding the front panel to the top. You can the lean the front panel out (its still held at the bottom) to get at the screws (take care not to drop them into the machine).The click mechanism is sealed and cannot be dismantled.
You can then use strong (duct tape or gaffer tape) to tape the push button in the on posistion. Or you could place strong tape with some sort of stiff material over the inside of the top button aperture. Alternatively without having to remove the top panel push the on/off button in fully and slightly to the left. The button will then jam in the opening. I'v also heard of someone jamming the switch in by using a cocktail stick between the aperture and the button.
FOR ALL THE ABOVE SOLUTIONS YOU MUST HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE ON/OFF BUTTON BY REMOVING THE MAINS PLUG OR HAVE IT IN A SWITCHABLE SOCKET.
I will shortly be going to Maplin Electronics to see if I can source a replacement switch.
