SOURCE: thermal fuse
Luke, before doing this, please disconnect your dryer from the electrical service. With the back panel removed...The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing, (lower left) and is white in color. If you have a multimeter, remove one of the 2 wires and check OHMS. If you read continuity, it's good. If it checks OK, go to your element can. There are two t'stats there on the left above the connectors for the element, check those the same as the thermal fuse. If any of these tests show anything other than OHMS, that's the problem. DOING THIS IS DANGEROUS. EXERCISE CAUTION. If you don't have a multimeter, you can pull both wires off of each of the t'stats individually and connect them together... essentially bypassing them one at a time. Then plug the dryer in and test it. If there is heat, you have isolated the faulty component. Let us know what you find.

while it is possible that something could be drawing too much current, it is not likely to cause the "thermal" fuse to blow. what i would like to know is, did you use the wiring kit made by whirlpool to replace the wiring? if not then you probably arent getting a good enough connection on the thermal fuse itself.
what causes a thermal fuse to fail is ... get this... too much heat. so a loose connection is the most likely cause. check with your parts house and see if they can find the right repair kit that comes with a wiring replacement with the thermal fuse.

pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.
