Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Maytag neptune model #MDE9700AYW
Overheating is almost always an airflow problem. Check airway before the place the fuse is located and the vent pipe and vent after the fuse to make sure they are open, If the airway is clear, the thermostat may be allowing the heating element to stay turned on until the dryer gets too hot,

Make sure air duct inside dryer and also going outside is clear. Make sure heating element is not grounded to housing.

Hello Tom, welcome to FixYa.
I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Maytag MDE9700AYW dryer. I'm not sure if you know this, but this particular Maytag is built by Samsung.
To address your question as to where the thermal fuse is located on your dryer, it is one the heater housing, there is a hi-limit and a thermal fuse. If the Thermal fuse/safety is gone, replace the hi-limit as well.
Here is a chart to identify which thermostat is which and it's location, the resitance value to check for and part number for replacement.
Once you've gain access to them you'll need to remove at least one wire to check the continuity...the values are shown in the above chart (basically it's either open or closed)
As far as part, there are a couple of places I prefer, on-line at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com".
**unplug the appliance and turn off the gas supply before attempting any service...safety first**
Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance and I'll do whatever I can. Good luck.
