First you need to know your dryer over heated and the thermal fuse tripped for a reason.
You will need to replace the thermal fuse, thermal fuses are there to protect the dryer. When you have the dryer apart clean all the venting and vacuum out the dryer. Look online for a parts supplier in your area, you will need your model and serial number to order the thermal fuse they are about ten dollars.
how long is the venting, does it exceed 20 feet, how many elbows. Make sure the outside hood is clean

your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

not likely a fuse. check the heating element for a break. the thermal fuse will shut the dryer down completley. could be you need an upgraded thermostat kit for the heater assy.

Remove all duct work and inspect for lint trapped inside. If you get a very good handful the moister sensor shuts down the burner automaticlly until the vents are cleaned thoroughly
