    hmm not sure if its worth taking apart just incase it malfunctions and causes more problems, if you look at the switch then you maybe able to match the type by searching the internet for a replacement if its attatched to a circuit board then replace the board. try looking here..

Hotpoint VTD00 tumble dryer wont stay on! help!

Remove the top cover and spray the affected botton with WD 40. it may be just sticking.
Make sure it is free and not catching on anything.
It will not hurt the dryer by taping it up,nor will it catch fire,
If it is still sticking, then it is a fairly simple job to replace.
Plz rate my suggestion for solution.
Thanks, and plz feel free to leave any comment.

Tumble dryer not drying

Either dryer element has failed, thermostat for drying or the drying condenser fan not working.

There are two heating elements and the top one is for drying.
