If you are sure the thermal switch is ok.. have you checked the high temp ( bi metal snap switch) too? Here is a link to the wiring diagram of your dryer. You can see that there are a few other temp switches in circuit of the heating element that would disble it.. Hope this helps

Just replace the thermal fuse for now. You have gotten good use from this machine. But, this is also may be the beginning of the end. Thermal fuses are not expensive either. These things just go out at no uncertain times.

The thermal fuse is a small white skinny bakelite device held on with one screw. Replacing it is very common and is considered an easy and low cost simple repair.
You can check it with an ohm meter for resistance. It should read zero ohms of resistance. If you have no meter, you can remove it and have an appliance parts house test it for you.
It is located behind the rear cover mounted near center toward the bottom.

Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.
