No timer controls everything turns it off on and controls heat to turn on and off stats are there for temp reading and cycling
guess if you want to burn your house down it can be done but why
buy the timer

SOURCE: Hotpoint Dryer belt broken

http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php From what I see, you have to remove the front, and maybe the drum to get at the belt. See what instructions come with a new belt.

We have a full video library on appliance repair video’s
Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

SOURCE: can't work out how to fit new belt to my tumble

You need to remove the rear panel the top console panel,,and then remove the whole cabinet to gain access to the drum and belt.
Then you need to release the front panel at the top to enable you to fit the belt.
Hope this helps.

Is there a way to bypass timer?


Sure, but why? The timer is hooked up to a cam(s) that sets up the different operations of unit. Without the cam working about all you will do is maybe get a spinning motor at best.

Replace the messed up timer assembly.

Hotpoint TVM572 timer is faulty


It is important not to open the door of the dryer if it is still running. The timer controls the cooling cycle otherwise the clothes will get damaged if kept on hot.

It is very likely the timer contacts are frozen at some point and the timer will need some attention.

It is not hard to locate it. I cannot find the actual parts drawing for your model (it is good you have provided the full model details). But to help you locate the part I have found another Hotpoint model that may be similar to yours. Check this drawing to see if the front panel is similar.
Item 100 is the timer.
HOTPOINT Electric Dryer Backsplash blower moto Parts Model NWSR483EB1WW

The actual timer for your model looks like this.
Hotpoint TVM572P Timer

As the clothes are not getting burnt or singed I will assume the thermostat is ok and keeping the temperature within the range.

Hot point dryer drum does not turn, but the dryer will heat?


That might be bad glides on the front. Newer models have glides on top of the drum while older models have glides on the bottom. Both are easily replaceable. The belt might be broken because of the glides.
Not all hotpoint dryers are built the same but I made a few videos of these dryers to give an idea how to get into them:

Need to know how to reconnect the timer on a hotpoint dryer


As you do not state the model number of dryer, it is virtually impossible to be of any help here, as there are literally hundreds of different models of Hotpoint dryers produced over the years.
I suggest you go to the Hotpoint web site and see if they can help.

My aqurius WD420 shows that the door is locked. So i can't open it........


If the door will not open normally, then the only solution is to remove the top cover, and force the door open from inside the washer at the front

How do I remove/clean the filter on my Hotpoint Aqurius condenser drier?


There are 2 filters to clean on this dryer.
1 is at the bottom front left, pull all the way out, and wash clean under running water, quite in order to do this.
The second one is at bottom front right, again pull out to clean, but do not use water on this one.
Some dryers also have one located inside the door opening, pull out to clean if yours has one.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks
