There was nothing wrong with the timer, but the cheap, soft plastic post that connected it to the knob broke off inside the knob.
First, I unplugged the dryer, carefully so as not to electrocute myself. Then, I removed the panel on the top, back of the dryer, using a Phillips screwdriver. Then I removed the old timer and unplugged all the connectors, one at a time, so as to make sure I plugged them back in to the correct positions on the new timer. I had to use pliers because they were very hard to remove. Then, I plugged them into the same positions on the new timer, which was easy. Then I replaced the timer into position. Then, because I could not use the old knob since it still had part of the old cheap soft plastic post stuck inside it, I took a knob for the power rinse control off of my washer, since I never use that anyway, and I put it onto the new cheap soft plastic post on the new timer, and it works like a charm. I plan to be very, very gentle with that knob, knowing, as I do, that the post that it turns is not much harder than room temperature butter and that, if I break it, it will cost me over $70 dollars to get another one, and it also will not even contain a new knob, even though the one I borrowed from my washer will be unusable because it will have half of the old post stuck in it. Finally, I replaced the panel on the top, back of the dryer and plugged in the dryer.

Timer knob broke for the third time/shaft broke off eventually so had to replace timer as well.
I should have called hotpoint first before ordering part-in other comments this was a common issue with this model. Ordered part through you-which arrived before expected date, was easy enough to replace ourselves. Hot point however was not able to offer any kind of discount because part was not bought through them directly. Again common issue/problem in this model

Timer locked up, will not turn
From behind the dryer remove the panel directly behind the timer assembly (6 phillips head screws).
Take a picture at this point of how the wires are attached to the timer assembly for reference during reassembly Then remove wires with pliers. Remove T10 Torx screw that retains the timer assembly in place. Remove timer Knob (pull forward). Rotate timer assembly to pop it out.
From here, twist in new timer, use T10 torx to hold in place re-attach wires and reinstall rear panel
