Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The thermostats and thermal fuse are located on top of the heater element housing behind the dryer drum. What problem are you having with the dryer?

Was doing a load of laundry and the fuse blew. Both the washer and dryer (gas) are on the same outlet. After resetting the breaker the washer works but the dryer did not. Connected dryer to a different outlet with no success.

Have cleaned out all the vent connections also.

Did google search and seemed like thermal fuse is the culprit. Took off the back panel and can’t discern which is the fuse because none look like the ones in the video.
