SOURCE: Thermal Fuse
First of all stop replacing the fuses and using the dryer it could burn down your house. The problem is the vent is clogged (not necessarily in the dryer) make sure also that the vent flex is not excessively long behind the dryer and is not kinked when the dryer is pushed back.

SOURCE: thermal fuse keeps blowing
they will blow if the heat dont get out of the dryer and builds up inside / check and see if vent hose behind dryer is kinked or vent going outside is open / it will be one of those two.

There is a tensioner in the pulley that should keep the belt from slipping off.n most cases they work very well at keeping the belt tight.In your case the belt may be stretched too much ,I would check it and replace it if necessary

This is for the ELECTRIC MODEL Only. I have the DV448AEPl and had the same problem... I cleaned all of the lint from every nook and cranny and ordered a "repair kit" from Sears (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Samsung-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-DV448AEPXAA/1482/0151200?searchedModel=dv448&blt=) there is even a blow up of the parts there - I ordered part numbers , DC47-00015A, thermostat, DC47-00018A - thermostat and DC47-00019A - dryer heater. The heater is relatively easy to get to if your not squeamish about removing some screws and taking the front off the dryer. Once the front is off you can clean even more lint from the dryer. Remove the heater unit by unscrewing the single screw accessed from the front of the dryer and then disconnecting all of the connectors.
Lastly - once I took the heater assembly out I found that a dime had made its way into the heater coil and was shorting it out... Probably could have got by by just removing the dime and cleaning the coil but I figured that since I was elbow deep in the thing I might as well clean it all up and install the new parts.... Cost of parts was about $80.00 w/shipping. Cost of a repairman to knock on my door here is $150 so I came out ahead on this one... Good luck.
