Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Dryers have a belt that turns the drum, I think dryer belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.

If problem was the thermal fuse the thermal fuse should blow stopping the element. The only condition when the element stays on with blown thermal fuse is when the element is shorted to ground, and stays always on.
The fuse can be tested reading Ohms with multimeter, if good at room will read zero Ohms or very little impedance. If it is open, it is gone.
Also ensure that the problem is not a broken belt, in that case motor will start. The belt is accessed removing the screw that hold the upper panel and tilting the top on the hinges.
Other probem may be the wiring to motor, or the motor itself.
If you need to call a technician call the number listed on the owners manual.
Here all parts and diagrams.
