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

With the drum removed, loop the belt around the drive motor an run both strands of the belt under the tension pulley. You have to be carefull on getting the drum back in place while working the belt back on a LITTLE AT A TIME. Once installed verify the belt is not caught on anything and you should be good to go.

something is still plugged with lint,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is on top remove the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the lint filter and the two screws in front of it and remove the four screws and clean out the duct,if the filter is in front take off the bottom panel,remove the filter and clean the duct,also vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,when the dryer gets to hot the thermal fuse pops as a safety so you still have a block somewhere
