Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Is this a gas dryer or and electric dryer? And do you happen to have the model number which is located on a sticker just inside the door way?

Gas model XXXXXXXXXXX /p>

OK. On gas models, the thermal fuse only cuts out the heat, not the motor. On electric models the thermal fuse will cut out both the motor and all heat.

You'll want to replace the thermal fuse and then check the vent through your house because this fuse breaks when the vent starts to get clogged a bit normally.
