It's likely the problem with the airflow. High limit thermostat is turning the gas valve off. Clean/replace the vent and lint trap.Check if there is anything stuck to the grille inside the dryer.

The thermal fuse is located behind the back panel just to the left of the exhaust opening (looking from the back), it is white in color and has 2 wires (usually blue) going to it.
If you dryer comes on sometimes I would suspect this is not the problem.
The symptoms you describe most often are a loose wire or a bad motor.

I'm assuming from the symptoms you posted, that the dryer does run, correct? If so, the fuse box may have checked out, but have you also checked for the correct voltage at the wall receptacle? A dryer will still run, but will not heat, if its missing a portion of the input voltage. The reason is that the drive motor only uses 120VAC to run, while the heating circuits need the full 240VAC service. If you are missing one leg of the input voltage, the dryer will exhibit the symptoms you describe. In addition, depending on when your home was built, some houses use two separate breakers that feed the 240VAC source the dryer needs to run. Have you checked to make sure there isn't more than one breaker that feeds the dryer? If you have checked for the correct voltage, have you also checked the continuity of the power cord to the terminal block? A broken power cord can give the same symptoms.
If the model number is correct, this is a very simple dryer to work on. There are no other switches or relays, other than the door switch and the built in centrifugal switch inside the drive motor. If the door switch were bad the dryer would not run at all. If the centrifugal switch in the motor were bad, the dryer may or may not run (depending on how it is faulted), which may give you the symptoms you describe.
When you checked the components, how did you determine they were good? If you need assistance (just to clarify your measurments), the following two links can give you some tips on how to troubleshoot this problem:
I hope I'm not insulting your itelligence. I ask these simple questions, because they are things that can easily be overlooked. If you need further assistance, please post back and elaborate a bit more on your symptoms, so i can provide you with a more definitive answer. I hope this information was helpful to you.

Tips for a great answer:
Item #2986 (OEM Part)
Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
