What is the model number on the inside by the door. It's most likely a thermal fuse or the element. Do you have a way to check fuses by a meter or something? There are usually 2 thermal fuses on the pipe with big red wires where the element is. Usually they go out if not the element.

If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.
2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.
3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).
4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.
You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.
NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

that's normal,obviously you haven't cleaned out your dryer and vent line,nobody ever tells the customer when you buy your dryer that it should be cleaned out at least once a year so you don't have a fire more so if it's a gas dryer with an open flame inside the dryer,you gotta vac out the inside where the motor is,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and blow out the vent line,i use a leaf blower to clean out the vent line,take it off the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower in the line if it's a long run if it runs through the wall and to the outside flapper and blow all the **** out of it,also if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor,you won't believe how much lint comes off the motor even though it looks clean,so vac out the inside of dryer,clean out the lint filter duct and blow out the vent line

UNPLUG THE AC POWER CORD. Take a metal wedge with a cloth cover. Carefully drive into the grove about 2 inches from top in front of unit above the door. The top will pop up. A locking post is located on each corner. Raise the top like a clothes washer lid. Vacuum the inside. Remove the exhaust tubing and vacuum inside the dryer exhaust port & tubing. If this don't resolve your problem you have an electrical or belt problem. Check your belt by rotating the drum with your hand when you have the top up. Please reply to my suggestion. Thank you.
