My dryer runs, but there is no heat. I checked the fuse and have replaced the heating element, thermal fuse and thermistor. I just ordered the thermal cut off and hi limit thermostat. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? Dying to have my dryer back!! Thank you

Usually the thermal cut off 300f smaller limit on the heater housing is the culprit. The larger limit 250f near the rear of the heater housing comes in the same kit. Usually the vent to outside is blocked if that small one trips.

You should have continuity thru thermal link as well as thermostat. Find which lead to your element is lacking proper voltage and trace it back to the problem.
