.can i tell if the la-1053 is blown? I don't want to but it if it might be something else. I was told part 303396 is the part that might have failed. Is there a way to open the back and take a look to find which one it is?

Not from the back but by lifting the top up. the heating elemen is in the center behind the tub in a rectangular housing, the thermastat is on the right side of the housing it has white wires going to it it is a ****** to get to

Blown fuse due to air flow blockage. Part number LA-1053. Part location: to the right of heater mounted on heater housing. POP the top: the heater will be in the back. NOTE: the fuse is heald into place on the side of the heater using the same screw that secures the heater element. Clever ain't it?
most common problem with the dryers is blown thermal fuses, something gets too hot and for safety reasons the thermal fuse blows. You can also check your incoming power supply make sure the breakers havent tripped. part num( LA-1053 )about $30 comes with directions to install. its located under main top towards the rear of unit moundted to the side of heater.BE SURE TO TURN OFF ALL POWER BEFORE CHECKING ITS LIVE!!!!!!!!!
The thermal fuse is blown its mounted on the heater with the two smaller white wires. Check the vent for restrictions (since overheating is what caused it to fail) Was the dryer taking long time to dry before it stopped?? If so there is a definate vent restriction. Part number LA-1053 comes with new high temp thermostat too (recommended).
