If the thermal fuse was bad the dryer would not tumble.
have you taken the unit back apart to make sure all of the wiring is on correctly?
Yes you are correct the original issue of tumbling and no heating was NOT a thermal fuse issue
On gas dryers it will still tumble with a bad thermal fuse ,but not on electric heat dryers the thermal fuse kills the entire dryer .
if all you did was put in a thermal fuse make sure the wiring in on the thermal fuse and that the wiring is back on the door switch correctly both of those will stop the dryer from running/ tumbling.
In the heater circuit you have the heater relay on the control board , Two thermostat ,the heating element and a switch on the drive motor itself.
Do you have a Volt-ohm meter and know how to use it to be able to do any component or voltage testing on the unit?
Do you still need assistance on your question?
