Hi, John.

Most likely the problem is bad thermal fuse.
It's located on the blower housing.
With the dryer unplugged get the toe panel off , take one wire off the fuse and check for continuity. If it's open - replace the fuse.

The thermal fuse Part number: AP3133489

Part number: AP3133489


Thank you. Post the results.
