Question about Dryers
A good thermostat reads zero ohms when cool and infinity when hot enough to cycle off. A bad thermostat reads infinity when cool, infinity when not hot enough to cycle off, or zero when hot enough or even hotter than is cycling temperature. The temperature marking on the thermostat is its temperature rating on which it cycles off and should read infinity.
The sensor works only when an auto-dry cycle is selected. The bars or wires are shorted if the dryer doesn't shut off after the clothes are dry and open or the connection is cut open or loose if the dryer shuts off before the clothes are dry.

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermostat that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if bad replace it as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then check the dryer belt and idler pulley...Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
