I have a kenmore 70 series heavy duty 110 96573230. It doesn't heat up. Can't find where the thermal fuse. Where is it located? Do I need to unscrew the back?

Yes, you need to take it all apart. ( Including the back.)
All of the things that can cause your problem are in the back and the bottom of your machine.
There are actually about 3 to 7 things that can cause "no heat".
Not only the "thermal fuse", but also the heating element, and any of the "overheat thermostat switches" can have failed, beside the possibility there is a wire has burned in two.
You will need a testing instrument like a multi-meter or a volt-ohm meter to check all these out.
Be blessed.

I have a kenmore heavy duty 70 series gas. not heating up. were is the heating element. could you send a technical manual.

Your dryer does not have a element. The problem is either with the igniter, or the gas valve coils. I would replace both of them. I think they would run about $35.00 for both. Here is a link to the parts.

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes

The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.

It sounds like your heating element has broken. There are several links provided on this site on how to replace it. You might want to take a look at to purchase a new one. He has pretty good prices on the element.
