Usually the thermostats blow when the dryer runs to hot so you don't have a fire,most likely the dryer needs to be cleaned out and the vent line has to be cleaned,you didn't send the model number or brand name so do this,unplug the dryer,you have to remove the filter and clean the duct that the filter slides into,most of the time you have to take the dryer apart to do this right.then blow out and vac all the lint in the cabinet where the motor go outside,make sure the vent is open,if there's a cage on it or screen remove it,all it does is block the lint and then the air can't blow through building up lint in the line,i take the vent line off the back of the dryer,stick a leaf blower in it and blow the line out,i've had people say the line was clear,i go there,blow out the line and on two occasions i blew out birds nest.when the dryer is clean,change out the thermostats that are bad and you'll be fine

Lg dryer keeps blowing thermal fuses we have checked the thermostat and the element all have continuity

The thermostats (outlet and on element case) can still allow the heat to go to high, restricted airflow will also cause them to go.

Keeps turning on and off and blowing cold air

See the wiring diagram below,Kill power 1st, remove the Red and White wires from the thermostats sub base after you have removed its cover.
connect the red to white and restore power, this effectively removes the thermostat from the equation. If it still cycles note the diagnostic code on the furnace.

Hatco booster blowing breakers

Copy following link:

Hatco booster heater typically has 2 sets of thermostats and elements located on each end of heater.
Both sides might be controlled by same 60 amp breaker, or the heater might be controlled by two separate 30 amp breakers.
Be sure you have correct wire and breaker.

After reading steps on link above, add comment and say if this is new installation, or older installation that suddenly started throwing breaker.

Keeps blowing fuse no heating

check you t stat wires. it sounds like you have the red and white wires touching somewhere. check the thermals where they are tied into the t stat and also check the wires everywhere for splits where you can see copper wire. if you find where they are touching, separate them and try it. if you have more them just white and red wires in the casing that you are not using you can change the bad wire to one of the other. if you change the wire to a different color the the t stat you have to change it on the furnace also.

Dryer heats, then quits

The thermostat that controls the heat has failed. Try one of the other settings on the timer switch ans see if it will heat, the different cycles use different thermostats.
