Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Dryer got real hot and shut the motor down. I replaced the thermal fuse on the heater element. That worked for about 40 minutes and it overheated again and shut down. Would the high-limit thermostat be the cause?

Yes, I agree it is the high limit thermostat, or the motor is bad!
