Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel. Push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If works, ok. If not, recheck the breakers. If tripped again, the dryer has an internal short circuit--likely in the heating element(s). The drum must be removed to service the element(s).

Check the switch mounted on the motor. Two of the terminals are for the heater element operation. Other causes could be a faulty heat selector switch or timer. These components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. These are some items to consider. Hope this helped and best wishes.

The thermal limit mounts beside the heater element chamber and is held to it by the same screw that holds down the element.
The kit comes with 2 limits one fer gas the other fer electwic.

Testimonial: "well my model must be older because it has a barrel heater in the back and the front comes off with four screws in the door area "
Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.
