You may want to disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and try it. Flame rollback will cycle the burner off by the high limit.
Considering what you have already done to it, if the problem still exists you probably have bad coils on the gas valve. make sure you replace them as a set.
The thermal fuse is a one time device. If it opens, the burner will not come on at all.

If you can reach the flame sensor through the gas burner access (if so equipped / depending on model) it is even better because you don't have to open the dryer up.
Just note there are 2 types of flame sensor out there. One has 2 terminals and one has 3 terminals. the links below are for the 2 terminal flame sensor.
