    yes the latch is attached to the door, but i need to replace the side that the latch goes into which is in the main body of the machine.

    not sure if i explained that properly! say the latch on the door is the male part of the catch and what it goes into is the female part of the catch, well i need to replace the female part. i hope this makes sense! it is a hotpoint aquarius CTD00. thanks.

You should not need to remove tho outer casing, usually the latch is screwed straight to the door, I see if I can find the replacement,
which is your model?

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes 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 different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Renew my rubber door seal on my Hotpoint aquarius CTDOO dryer around the drum area


Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

Door catch model CTDoo


With most dryers, you should have the ability to reverse the door so it opens the opposite way. Will this work for you, or is the tab broken off of the door?

Tumble dryer hotpoint ctd00


Unscrew all screws that hold the 2 halves of the door together, then with a screwdriver or similar, prize apart the 2 halves of the door, be careful the door glass does not fall onto the floor.
Fit new parts, reassemble door, and hey presto!!!
