repair video’s Common faults - 1 Theheating elementscan fail (meaning open circuit) 2 There arecut-outs (T.O.C's)that might need resetting 3 Thethermostats (stats)can trip out or burn out (meaning open
circuit) 4 Modern
tumble dryers also have sensors andpcb's (Printed circuit
have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error
code showing you were the fault is. 5 Faulty
connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Take a look at #36 in the breakdown I have attached. This part is called a thermal limiter and blows if the heat is restricted in any way to cause the dryer to get too hot. You need to make sure that you don't have a lint buildup around the motor and in your vent hose. The part number for this part is 530320912. Hope this helps.
Excessive lint on or near the heater coils will send smoldering lint onto the clothes. Use a flash light and go inside the drum to see the heating coils or lifting the top up who should be able to see the lint build-up on the coils. These need to be cleaned.
All dryers have to have a way of allowing the tumbler (that's the thing
you put the clothes in) to turn freely, not all of them are the same
tho,some use bearings, some use slides,others use rollers. Over time
these rollers will need to be oiled,the slides will get thin and start
metal to metal contact causing a noise, The rear bearings will then start to make their way to china and
cause the tumbler to rub into the heating element and OUCH! These
things will cause the motor to prematurely DIE! Its best to examine the
dryers, rollers, and slides when you first hear the noise, but who does? SOME PICTURES
It is most likely the heating element or thermal cut out. That is behind the drum. Remove the front panel. Get to the back panel. take it off. then notice how the belt is. draw if you have to. pop it off. then get gloves on the next step is very sharp and i will be the first to tell you.. you can go to the hospital... anyhow grab the back of the drum and the front then **** up. then you will see heating element and thermostats. you may see the heating element bad, if not then having the unit still unplugged check continuity on the fuses. call me if need any parts or more help.

check this and see if this helps you out
