Check the terminals behind the incoming power terminal strip,this terminal block handles a lot of current and after time terminals burn off,it sounds like the neutral wire is burned or broken off which will give you these results you speak of,unplug the unit first before opening the access panel in back

Hotpoint ctd40 tumble dryer gone dead changed the fuse still dead any ideas ???

Check the mains lead for continuity! Thats making sure the lead to the dryer is not broke anywhere internally.
It may mean removing panel to get access to where the mains lead goes into the dryer, You can do this with power off, check with a multimeter that both the brown wire and blue wire as well as the green and yellow earth wire has continuity from the plug to the dryer!!

My hotpoint wm52 won't start ,its completely dead no lights ,have checked sockets,plugsand fuse all ok ,have also changed interlocking system still nothing

main timer is blown along the door lock tracks. you can repair it with a soldering iron and a small length of wire. It blew because the interlock went faulty

Ok, here is the service manual for your unit.
This is a company out of the UK. I'm not sure if they have a number here in the us or where exactly you are located. If you are in the UK, I have included a link for you.
