There is no reset switch and there is no fuse inside the console. I posted comments to your solution under the premium problem section. I believe you could have a bad thermal fuse which is located in the rear of the dryer. I left instructions for you to follow. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:
Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.
A dryer that won't heat can't do its job. Learn how to assess heating problems for gas and electric dryers in the next section.

the warning does not strictly mean filter only
there is a lint blockage somewhere in the vent system and there is only a single response the dryer knows to make
could all be sufficiently blocked to set off the warning

Without actually taking meter readings I would suggest that its probably the thermostats that are fitted to the heater unit on the back of the appliance.
