Located inside a housing that is on the left rear side of the dryer. It has 2 thermal fuses with 2 red wires plugged into each the element has 2 wires also but it is slid inside the housing.

Yes, but there are several thermal limiters, they should reset when the unit cools, so likely that is not what is happening.... Forcefully turn the breaker FULLY off, and then back on, and test again...
The thermal limiters are located along the air flow path, typically downstream of your burner, the purpose is to prevent overheating and fire. These limiters stop the HEATING element and not the drum motor...
remove the back of dryer,unplug,look to the right and you will see the heater box,the lower half is the heating coil,remove the 2 wires and 2 screws and pull the heater off,also you need to check the heater box fuse located on the upper left side fg heater box-mike
hello there: here is some troubleshooting ideas for you to help A dryer sometimes won't heat or heats too slowly because of a variety
of reasons. By following the guidelines below, you can inspect the
heating elements on a gas or electric dryer to pinpoint the source of
the problem. Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained
units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is
frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back
service panel to gain access to the elements. The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty
heating element might have gone out or the exhaust might be clogged. I took my vacuum hose and stuck it up the exhaust ( I think that's what it's called) and got a canister and a half of lint out. Then my dryer worked fine.
you need to check the heating element and the thermal fuse in the back of the dryer, they should be their. do you have an ohme meter, if not barrow one or you can pick one up cheep and lowes or homedepo .
