I replaced both thermal fuses with the correct parts, and when that didn't work I replace the heating element. The dryer runs, but still no heat. I wanted to fix it myself, but unless someone can clue me in, I will have to call a repairman and be out extra bucks.

You need to make sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer. If you do, then unplug the dryer. Lift the lid of the dryer by taking a putty knife and putting it under the lid of the dryer. There are two clips that you need to push in then the lid of the dryer will lift up. In the back left hand corner of the dryer, you will see the heating element. Beside that you will see a thermostat and thermal fuse. check both of them for continuity. Most likely the thermal fuse is bad. If it is bad replace it and clean your dryer vent. The thermal fuse breaks when the dryer gets too hot. It is a safety switch.
The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
