Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.
The problem most likely is the high limit thermostat. this is supposed to shut down the heater if this overheats. I would replace that , if you have a temperature that exceeds the limit on this the thermal fuse will blow to prevent a fire.
I did test the component with multimeter; it did test sat (not opened) Is there a possibility its value changed and too much is flowing through fuse, and it's blowing. I did buy that component with the multitude of thermal fuses. What about the HLT that is attached to the blower, is that a possibility?
I didn't test while the dryer was still hot; it was several hours after the dryer stopped drying. So, my understanding now; if that thermostat is not functioning as designed, and not regulating the heat, the fuse gets overheated and opens? That would make sense.
I have to go on a short road trip; i will be back in a couple of hours; your response will still come to my phone; i just wont be able to respond as well.
