Question about Hotpoint Dryers
My dryer will rotate but want heat up.
Check the circuit breaker for the plug the dryer uses. Open your house power panel and locate the breaker for the dryer. It will be 2 breakers connected together by a metal pin so when one trips it will trip the other. This shuts off 240 volts. Sometimes only one breaker will trip without tripping the other one. This leaves the dryer with 115 volts to work the rest of the machine but won't power the heating element. Replacing the breaker will fix the dryer.

SOURCE: dryer heating element
There is a fuse in the dryer for the heat.
Before tearing into the dryer, make sure the power getting to the dryer is absolutely correct. (check power with the dryer running) Even with incorrect power to the dryer. the drum will still turn but there will be no heat.
Many a person has paid for expensive service calls for the problem you are having only to discover by the servicer that there was nothing wrong with the dryer but had bad power to the dryer......

First I would make sure that you have 240volts coming into the dryer. Then I would check the thermal cut-off in is a fuse on the housing of the element. that should be it but if not look for the heater relay.

your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

check the temperature switches in the back for continuity and also the moisture sensor on the exhaust housing at the rear of the unit. all these switches should be normally closed.
