You will need to check the main terminal block make sure there are no wies burnt or touching each other.

If that is ok then you will need to check the heating element and make sure,it is not grounding out on the cabinet,and make sure to check all the wiring to the unit.you will also need to check the motor and drive belt and make sure they move freely.

The last thng ot check is you circuit breaker.

HOTPOINT WD420 TRIPS ALL THE SOCKETS IN MY HOUSE


You have a fault on the machine which is a dead short or an earth leakage.

Neither can be sorted out without a set of testers and some knowledge

Unless you can get hold of a resistance checker and know how to use it call a in a repair person

My hotpoint ctd 40 wont heat up


Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.

the capacitor is mounted near the motor, and is a round cylindrical tube about 4" long.

Thermostats do not have a reset
IF the dryer has failed by overheating, the device is called a thermal fuse, it is a one-shot protector, and needs to be replaced.
If the thermal fuse has blown the dryer is likely {expletive deleted} with lint and needs to be cleaned.
STILL require make and model details for replacement instructions
