In the diagram at the link below, number 6 is a thermal fuse that has likely opened. It is accessed by removing the rear access panel from the back of the cabinet. With the dryer unplugged, remove the wires from that fuse and tape them together. Will the dryer then heat?


A picture of that part is below, for reference.
