Check your heating element to see if it is shorted to ground.
The element has 110V to it all the time, so if the element shorts to ground it will heat all the time. This is a fairly common failure.
If the element is ok, you may have a stuck centrifigul switch inside the motor, this is very rare but does happen sometimes.
Post back to let me know what you find or if you have any questions.

If the thermal fuse is blowing or the breakers when you bypass the fuse it means a part has a short circuit. There are more than one thermal fuses in there, so you will have to find where the one that blows is connected to.
My guess at this point would be that the motor or the start up capacitor are causing the fuse to blow but also check for a defective or shorted heater element.

check the thermostat that regulates the heating cycle if its in good condition and the thermal fuse. If the fuse is blown you will want to replace

the dryer circuit will be clearly labelled in the house box, there will be two fuses or a single two phase breaker for this circuit.
there are not usually electrical fuses as such IN a dryer, there are thermostats to regulate temperature, and a thermal fuse, that cuts the power totally to the heat element if air temperature rises above its melt point.
the element itself has a limited life span and may fuse/burnout.
to test electrical components.
open case, by removing the front,
described elsewhere in any of the 'changing belt' threads
locate the thermal cutouts, on the fan housing or exhaust duct and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire
thermal cuttouts look like these ~1inch accross.
locate the heat element and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire
while you have the dryer open de-lint the fan and exhaust ducting, most common cause of element or themal fuse failure is air flow restriction
you get a lot of lint out of the fan even when proper cleaning is done, and clean out the ducting right to the exterior walls
this was the rather extreme result of not cleaning the duct (brainiac placed a wire across the terminals of the burnt out thermal fuse)
