Click on pic below. The fuse is located on the rear wall of the dryer in the upper right hand corner. Not long ago I worked on a frigidaire dryer and did a few photos:

Looks like your model should be the same as the dryer JW posted about.

Your model dryer thermal fuse is part # AP2108182

You can order it from here, part # AP2108182



You will need to live the top of your dryer up to gain access to the thermal fuse that is mounted to the back of the dryer cabinet.
#7 in the diagram for your dryer show two clips you will have to push in with a putty knife to release the top and lift it up.
