You did good work and if those readings are accurate, then the thermal fuse is the problem and needs to be replaced. The fuse is a safety device that opens the heater circuit in the event of an over temp condition. So besides replacing the fuse, check your vent to the outside for anything that would restrict airflow, and ensure the connection at the back of the dryer is not folded over or kinked in any way. As for replacing parts for grins, it's up to you, but if it's been working well, I think I would wait. You already know how to take it apart and where to get the parts. Hope this helps.
