My name is ***** ***** I will assist with your query today.If your confident the appliance is getting power by checking\replacing the fuse, and checking the socket with another item (eg lamp), the fault most certainly is due to the PCB.Start by leaving the unit unplugged for 30 minutes, and then plug it back in and see if it comes back on, if it does this will be due to a thermal cutout inside the appliance, and you need not do anything unless the issue reoccurs at which point there could be a problem with it overheating.
However should the appliance not come back to life after being plugged back in, this would suggest a PCB failure, and a new PCB will be required, these can often be rather expensive.
Let me know how you get on, and if it doesnt come back to life send me the model of the hotpoint dryer and I can lookup the cost of a replacement PCB for you.
A replacement PCB is around £70 from here, however will need programmed, and in most cases its normally only possible by Hotpoint engineers as you need a smart card to programme them.
If you want to proceed with the repair please provide me with your postcode and I can see if there are any local engineers who can do this for you, failing will obtain a quote from Hotpoint to attend.
I your post code is showing Anna Island, after speaking to our local engineers we dont have anyone who covers your area. You could certainly try local engineers to you (if you know any), however in most cases they will be unable to programme the PCB.
I think that would be the most economical option, please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
