You contract with curry's would have been governed by the sale of goods act (1979 - not 1950's shiny!). Exact deadlines vary in scotland / England, but if you have had it for a long time it is possibly not curry's problem any more.
[for goods supplied after 1-oct-15 The consumer rights act was written in 2015, essentially to replace the sale of goods act and unfair contracts law. That makes it the retailers responsibility but only within certain time limits. (30d, 6m, 6y depending on the issue). ]
What age is the dryer? I understood (perhaps wrongly) that they were all over six years old and thus not the retailers legal issue.
