Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil or the thermistor/thermostats.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
Check the thermistor/thermostat by removing the wires from them, tape the wires together with electrical tape and try to run the machine and see if it heats up, if it does then you need to replace the thermistor/thermostat.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER this is dangerous, as you have no safety if the drum belt breaks, this could cause a fire.
Hope this helps
