Hi I have a Creda Simplicity T552VW tumble dryer and it won't

This answer was rated:

Hi I have a Creda Simplicity T552VW tumble dryer and it won't run. I have changed the fuse in both the switch on the wall and on the plug but no joy. I was looking at the door catch and it appears to be loose, the actual plastic coating covering the hole where the catch goes in is broken. Would be grateful for some advice.
