Thermal fuse is in motor circuit, not the heat circuit. If motor runs, thermal fuse is good. First try resetting the AC panel breaker for the dryer, sometimes one half of the breaker can trip internally without tripping the whole thing. If that doesn't work, you need to check for 240vac at the power cord terminal block. If good, check continuity of the thermal cutoff and hi limit thermostat. Heater coil should read between 7 to 12 ohms. If all checks out, could be a bad heat relay on the control board or a faulty motor switch. More likely the control board. You can unplug the two wires from the relay, make a good jumper to jump the two wires together and then see if you get heat. Jumper must be made with proper terminals as it's going to carry a lot of current for the heater. Unplug dryer before doing the jumper as one of the wires is live even with dryer off.
