I have a tumble dryer - When I switch it on there is nothing

This answer was rated:

Hi I have a tumble dryer - When I switch it on there is nothing showing on the display. It has power because the light comes on when I open the door.
JA: What happened just before the light on your dryer came on?
Customer: i Opened the door. The light is the internal light
JA: How long has this been going on with your dryer? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yesterday evening. Not much to try - I have proved the electrics are connected and tried to program and start
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: it’s a few years old

OK try this and let me know if it helps.

Unplug the appliance and while its unplugged clean the condenser, filter etc.

Once that is clean plug ti back after around 15 minutes.

If still it wont light up press and hold the two buttons together (as shown in the image) for around 10 seconds.

Let me know how it goes.

Unfortunately it did not work

OK and is it still completely dead ?

No flashing lights etc ?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
No nothing showing - not even backlighting for the switches. The light inside the machine is still lit.

OK, the Control Module will need replacement.

You may contact the manufacturer at 0800 917 2018 to book repair.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Hi. Sorry thanks for checking. Yes It’s fine - I guess that’s the next step. Not sure what is happening with the lockdown though so haven’t contacted them yet.
First time using this do I have to close the ticket ? Sorry
