For safety sake there is no safe way to check it if you don't have a meter. Or you novice at fixing things? I'm trying to think safe for you.

    At this point, without the meter, you should probably replace the dryer, because a service call will be at least a third cost of a new one. Good luck.

With most Hotpoint/GE dryers the blower motor is not spin by a belt. The problem is unlikely the blower motor. The problem is lint in the air ducts and in the blower housing. The lint results in overheating and the high limit switch cuts off the power to the heater (burner or element depending on the model).
As a result the dryer does not heat up.

Access the heating group and remove lint from the air ducts. Also clean the lint filter.

Hotpoint appliances are built by GE. Below service manuals for different GE-manufactured dryers:

My hotpoint dryer doesnt dry well. What do i must review?

Electric dryer? Try cleaning lint from the vent & inside the dryer - unplug it, remove the back, vacuum everything including inside the exhaust vent which you may be able to access better by removing a few screws. Poor airflow caused this problem with my dryer.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Gas Dryer - Heat flame will not ignite

The Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

My hotpoint tdc32 works fine for about a minute then just switches off. i try to restart but the on button just does'nt do anything. when i open the door the clean filter light comes on but ive cleaned...

My best guess is that air flow is blocked in the dryer vents or internal ductwork, allowing the dryer to overheat and trip the safety thermostat, shutting the dryer down until it cools off enough for the safety thermostat to self-reset.

Try using a long brush to clean lint accumulation through the front air flow vent, then remove the vent hose and clean from the rear. If that doesn't do the trick, you may have to pull off the front panel to get to the 'innards' of the dryer to further clean accumulated lint from the duct.

Lint build-up around one of the safety thermostats can hold enough heat to cause the thermostat to trip very quickly... Before the dryer has actually had time to heat up very much. The termostat has no way of 'knowing' that itself, and not the dryer, is overheated. BE SURE when working with any appliance that you disconnect the electrical connection before servicing.

Hotpoint wd440 flashing dryer heat button and onoff button !

I had to have a tech come out for the same problem two weeks ago. They had to clean the lint collector which you cannot get to on your own. He said now that this has been done everytime I use the machine, take the clothes out and then run a rinse spin cycle.
