You can access the heater element from the rear of the unit. I would hazard that you cannot access it via the front without removing the drum. I'm looking at mine now (searching for this illusive trip switch)

Hotpoint ctd40 will start drying then cut off after 20 mins or so. i have cleaned filters, resovoirs and tested the thermostats which are fine. any suggestions?

Do you have moisture sense on this dryer? Also, do you use dryer sheets? If the question is yes to both, look for your moisture sensor strips inside the drum. They will be a couple of metal strips that may be straight or curved and they will be spaced about 1/2" apart. Get some rubbing alcohol and several cotton balls and wet one of the balls and rub the metal strips. If it comes back blue, keep cleaning with the alcohol and cotton balls until they come back still white. Some dryer sheets will leave a residue on the sensors and it makes the dryer think that the clothes are dry and they cannot sense the moisture. Hope this helps!

The dryer heats, the drum turms, hot air circulates, but the clothes don't dry

If you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some advice on things to check before assuming you have a malfunction with the dryer:

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If the dryer can't exhaust properly, the moisture is retained in the dryer drum and your clothes stay wet, longer. A dryer in a clogged or poorply ventilated state can also cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This can also become a fire hazard if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call.

If you still have problems, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

HOTPOINT CTD40 CONDENSING DRYER not drying clothes any more.fault codes is on/off light and time delay lights are flashing after 30 seconds of switching the appliance on.the condenser unit is free of fluff...

Without actually taking meter readings I would suggest that its probably the thermostats that are fitted to the heater unit on the back of the appliance.

Drying Problems with a Hotpoint CTD00

There is a thermal fuse at the back that you must check. The thermal fuse can be tested using a multimeter.
If the fuse is ok, then check the heating element , the temp probe, wiring harness to heating element and temp sensor, and if there is nothing in there , then test control timer board.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

Hotpoint aquarius ctd40

most likely, there is a blockage in your exhaust. take it apart and check every inch from your dryer to the outdoors. i clean mine once a year, it keeps the dryer running efficiently. when lint backs up in there, the heat cannot get out and there is a sensor that will shut off the heating element when it gets to a certain temp, so your clothes will take a long time to dry
