No problem, on your unit you need to remove the front panel to access the heater assembly where the thermostat is located. the top of this dryer lifts up, take a putty knife and about 3 inches in from each side there are clips, push them in and lift the top. then there are two screws down on each side to remove the front. make sure the dryer is unplugged. take the door switch wires off and put the front aside. the heater will be straight back on the left side back. the thermal fuse is # XXXXX on this diagram, heres a link to the part and a video on how to test it. I'm confident thats your problem, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
