SOURCE: Dryer Thermal Fuse
air flow could be the issue or if your heater itself is grounded against the cabinet i think your unit is getting to hot check all your vent lines if you have good air flow check the heater try taking the vent totally off for a few cycles and see if the fuse blows agian

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

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

I'd like you to try something easy. Set the dryer to Air Fluff and see if the dryer still puts
out Heat let it run for about 2 full minutes If you dryer is still putting out Heat get back to me
