Question about Kenmore Dryers
IS THIS JUST A COINCIDENCE?
Have you reached into the back the dryer's vent port? Most will just replace the hose but fail to clean out the dryer's internal vent tube from the internal blower.
Re-check the fuse, a clogged internal vent tube will blow the fuse again.

remove the vent on the dryer that goes to the outside start the dryer if it continues to ru n and not cut off you have a venting problem of the house
if it cuts off after 5 mins with the vent off you have a motor that is going bad

I had the same problem today. After stumbling through the schematics (they were taped up behind the main control panel on top of the dryer) and ohming out a bunch of different parts with my multimeter, I finally took the heater element out and found that it had burned in two in a spot (I could see it once I took the element off of the dryer). I replaced it for about $80. The guy at the parts store said that is usually caused by a clogged vent, which is probably the case for mine, since my vent is poorly designed. I hope this helps someone.

One side of the element powers from the timer and the other side from the motor . Remove one wire from the element , and check which wire is not getting 120 V . Trace the wire NOT getting 120V and it will lead either to the timer or the motor , providing that the small t-stat looking piece (thermal cut-off) located close to the top of the heater box , shows continuity . If it does not , then pt # 3392519 is for it and the hi-limit t-stat . If you replace it , then replace both that come in the kit .
