Have you tested for power where the power cable attaches in the rear panel of the dryer ?

I don't know and don't know your dryer. some dryers have a safety pointer on the door so it will not run. it could be the switch the pointer pushes on. if pin is not quite touching safety switch, dryer will not turn on. be careful and don't by pass this switch. if you think this could be the problem - first try pushing on door to see if dryer runs. if not, you could use a thin stick to push in hole with door open. if it turns it has become loose and needs to be reinstalled. if it does not turn the switch should be checked with an electric test meter for continuity.

SOURCE: There is no power going

If there is power at the socket and if the plug fuse and the wire is intact then there will be power to the unit. The fault can be relative to the failure of the main program controller board / switch .
So use a multimeter to check the continuity of the plug to the main unit to confirm.
if so you might need to swap a board to confirm before ordering for one unless there is a minor fault on the board which can inpected with a simple test using the meter.
Thank you using Fixya.

SOURCE: dryer shorts out some of the electrics when its switched on!

The breaker in your breaker box is either weak and need to be replaced or the amps is too low. But from what you stated, you have had this dryer for awhile, so I'm assuming that its just a bad breaker. If the dryer still runs and doesn't have any issues when it dosn't pop the breaker, then this is what it is. Have an electrician come out and replace the breaker if you are not familiar with doing this.

My candy grand evo washing machine is not starting a washing cylce. Ive tried turning dial to off to restart to a different programme. Ive tried turning power off a socket and leaving it....still nothing....


You haven't said whether your machine "lights up" at all.
If not, unplug it and try another appliance (such as a hairdryer) in the same socket. If the hairdryer works, take a look at the plug of the washing machine. Thereafter, you'll need a plug change, or an electrician, or a service engineer.......

HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

Tumble dryer when switched on cuts power to all sockets in house


Hi.
Try it with the heater disconnected, you will find it at the rear of the m/c at the bottom left behind a removable panel.
You may have to remove the top cover and the right hand side panel looking at the m/c from the front. Try it again.
I fit does not trip. then your heater is faulty.
If it still trips then you are probably going to have to call en engineer
