Hello! We have a Kenmore electric dryer model 11066962501 that has stopped heating, can we get some help opening and repairing?

The dryer turns on, tumbles, etc, but is not drying clothes. We have cleaned out the dryer hose and all the vents etc. Still no luck, and there wasn't much lint build up or blockages at all.

We thought we would start by testing the thermal fuse, but what part of the dryer do we open and how? Is the thermal fuse in the front or back of the dryer?

Is there a link or video for this particular model that will help us find the parts and where an how to open the dryer? There is not a single screw in sight :)

Thank you!

there are several items to check to see why no heat.
thermal fuse isn't one because when it burns out the dryer will not start at all.
see this video to access the thermostats and heating element.
check the heating element and thermostats for continuity.
the one burnt out is bad....
