Unable to show layers in ArcGIS map after removing tiled map service layer

I wish to create a function to change basemap.

To test the concept, I created a map and added a ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer

var tiled = new ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer(''); 

Next, I will remove the layer and add a ArcGISImageServiceLayer to stimulate a change basemap action

var image = new ArcGISImageServiceLayer("", { imageServiceParameters: params, opacity: 0.75 }); 

What I realised is after these [adding tiled, removing tiled, adding image] actions, no layers will be rendered

I tested other scenarios and these are the results:

1) If I do not remove the tiled layer, both layers get rendered 
2) If I add only image layer, image layer get rendered
3) If I add only tiled layer, tiled layer get rendered

Do you guys have any advice as to why I cannot perform a remove layer action?

To make this question understandable, I created a sample fiddle that can illustrate my case. Simply remove the removeLayer comment in the fiddle and run it. You will notice as mentioned, nothing will be rendered.
