For some reason I cant come up with that model number, here all the thermostats thats on a Kenmore dryer, the hi limit is on the heater housing and the thermal fuse is on the blower housing or the air dust one could be open causing that problem.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
where are the fuses - front or back - are they special fuses or common ones that I can buy at the auto store - I don"t know what to tell you about the model number< I copied it right off the dryer
