yes, a DIY person can replace a thermal cutoff. just open the rear of the unit and look for parts with big red wires connected to it. it is round, one small and one big. both have two terminal clips.
if you can find the schematics inside the switch panel, then it would help you further. the thermal cutoff consist of two pc. replace both even one of them has continuity.

SOURCE: Dryer won't stay on.
tThe wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. A
thermal fuse is normally in the circuit to the igniter on many gas
dryers. I recommend checking this fuse. On dryer model 11073032102, you
can access this fuse by _unplugging the dryer, shutting off the gas
supply,_ and removing the bottom front service panel as shown in the
second image below. On some Kenmore dryers, you have to remove the back
panel to access the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located on the
blower housing . The third image shows the location
and replacement procedure. To test the thermal fuse, remove at least
one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance
across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure
near zero ohms (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open),
then the thermal fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.NOTE: If
the thermal fuse is blown, check the venting for your dryer. Restricted
exhaust venting can cause the thermal fuse to blow.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
