SOURCE: Water not heating or drying
It is possible that the element has gone, \even after such a short period of time.
If it is only 6 months old, then you need to contact Hotpoint service department, and get it fixed under the guarantee, do not try to fix it yourself,, as you could invalidate the guarantee.
If you look inside your user instruction hand book you will find the telephone number you need to ring to get service.
Please rate my fixya solution.

Poor drying problems with dryers generally are attributed to clogged ducting. You have probably heard this before, but the first (and least expensive) fix for any dryer with long dry times is to check the air movement. As well know, dryers require good air flow to ensure proper drying. Now, when you said the air movement is strong, were you checking it at the air vent exhaust outside, or were you checking on the back of the dryer? An easy way to tell if there's a clog in the ducting, or a clog in the dryer is to run one load with the dryer vent disconnected from the back of the machine. Only run one load like this. Not a good idea to blow hot moist air into an enclosed area of your home over a period of time because it can cause mildew problems. If the dryer blows freely and your clothes dry faster, you know you need to check the ducting from where it connects to the wall to where it ends at the exhaust vent. Often it is not enough to just clean the lint trap and the outside vent. You need to check what's in between them as well. Mice and birds are notorious for building nests in dryer vents and clogging them up. Now...if the dryer is blowing poorly at the exhaust port on the back of the dryer, you will need to remove the door kick panel under the door and remove the vent duct housing to get to the blower fan. Make sure you unplug the dryer before attempting this. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. Lint can get trapped in vent housing and restrict the movement of the fan, which, in turn, will cause poor air movement and longer dry times. Last of all, take a temperature reading at the exhaust port on the back of the dryer. A good temperature reading is roughly 140 degrees F. If the temperature is too low, you may have an operating thermostat or high limit thermostat malfunctioning. Check your vent ducting, first and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

did you use WD-40 on the motor, if you do you will need to unplug the dryer, and with a small drill bit drill a hole until you hit the cotton(yellow stuff) then with the straw on the WD-40 dampen the cotton cover hole with tape, unless on your motor there is an oil plug. the other things may be: drum rollers. drum glides, drum belt, and possible the idler arm. Hope this helps Tim
