The appliance repair man has put three different thermal switches in it, they keep blowing. He suggested our venting was plugged. Has a duct cleaner come and he found no problems. The last time it was changed out we left the dryer venting into the house. Lasted a day and blew again.

sure..this is actually a back pressure issue...when you used the twisty flexible hose, there is less reverse back pressure..
so, with the thermal mass from a 90 degree turn, it's most likely causing a heated air back flash, making the thermostat work harder, shortening it's life..
you might want to consider putting an inline fan, past the 90 degree turn(internal to the vent pipe) and let that exhaust the air at that point, instead of allowing thermal convection to be the sole propeller for this setup.
You need to replace the operating thermostat along with the thermal fuse. This thermostat controls temperature in the drum and if it fails, it will just put out heat constantly without regard to temperature. Be sure to check the exhaust vent in the house walls to make sure they're cleaned. Good luck
It could be the heating element, but it could also be the thermal switch, a round button that can sense the heat. One of the wires that go to the heating element go through the thermal switch. It's held on by two screw and is an easy repair.
It appears so. Plugged dryer vent should not cause a problem with control board. Good service tech should be able to use a cordless drill powered brush to clean entire length of vent, providing the vent is not the flex plastic ****. A simple clamp on amp meter test would confirm the dryer element (electric model) to be working. I'd advise you to turn your dryer on and see if you have a strong flow of air out of the outside dryer vent cap. (outside the house, where the bird nest was) Sounds like you could possibly use a new dryer vent cap, with a bird screen cover and a large 4 inch flap. (not the low profile 2 inch flap)
