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

The thermal fuse should be connected to and near the heating element. Check the paper electrical diagram, taped on the inside of the dryer.

SOURCE: how do i test a thermal fuse
A fuse is tested using the continuity or resistance (ohm) setting on a multimeter.
Disconnect the power to the dryer. Disconnect the leads to the fuse. With the meter set on continuity, the meter should beep - if you set to ohms, you should read 0 ohms across the terminals of the fuse. If you read infinity, the fuse is bad.

The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.
The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.
The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.
DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:
If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.
If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.

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.
