Question about Hotpoint Dryers
You need to buy a new timer and replace it. Be careful when replacing the timer as there are many electrical contacts in the back of the timer so when remove it, please label all the wires. Please follow the instruction from the manufacturer how to replace the timer. Of course, make sure you unplug the dryer because the dryer is powered by 220~240 VAC not 110~120 VAC.
As for the heater, there are two possibilities. The first one is, part of the heating element is open circuit and therefore, there is not enough heat to your clothing. The second possibility is, your timer contacts is broken, when the timer asks for high heat, the electricity supposes going to all the heating elements, but since the timer contacts are broken, you have only part of the heating elements working. The heating elements are quite easy to replace but please replace the timer first. You may fix both problems once you replaced the timer. WL
