You dont indicate if its gas or electric.

for both you may check the highlimit switch.
there may be two on ur unit depending on age.
they are located on the back panel and can be removed with a simple screwdriver. of course different models have different locations ..just poke around. (some are round disc others are plastic and both have a wire comming in and one going out of it) when they go bad they dont allow heat section of the dryer function (yea its a safety issue) if u have a meter test it, this should be a n/o switch if its closed...continunity (bad spellng) portion of the meter is used for this. simple check to do. you can do it with the machine off. email if you have more questios.

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:

Hello I have a hotpoint tcp 1p tumble dryer

this sounds like the thermostats

You-Tube video "sfGInKA3yp8" placeholder (do not delete)

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 opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

I have no heat from my hotpoint aquariur ctd20 tumble dryer

The element and stats are located behind removable panel at rear of m/c.
To test , you will need a multi meter set on the ohms range for continuity check., and you need to pull the wires of the components to get a proper reading.
THE M/C MUST BE UNPLUGGED prior to this check.
Check and clean all filters, remove the front bottom left filter, and clean by running under cold water.
Hope this helps.

No heat in dryer

if you can see your heating element, use a meter to test for continuity. remove the clips or wires attached to the terminals of the heating element and put the probes of the meter.
the reading should be close to short since it is a heater. maybe 1 to 10 ohms.

tnx 4 using fixya,
