Question about Hotpoint Dryers
I have a hotpoint aquarius dryer plus TL62. Put clothes in, shut door (sometimes will start tumbling without door being shut) it may work for a few minutes then stops - light goes out. If you give it a knock just around the door the light flickers briefly. Sometimes it starts again but mostly it wont! Many thanks. C Hudson
Sounds as if the door switch is the problem. This is normally a safety switch that stops the dryer when the door is opened.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the door switch and check the switch condition with a continuity meter after removing the wires. Try turning the switch on and off....the meter should read power on and off when you do that.
You may have to remove the front of the dryer to get to the door switch.
I hope this helps
