I needed to diagnose what the issue was. Several different parts can cause the heat in the dryer not to work. I tested each fuse with an Ohm meter and determined the Thermal fuse was displaying incorrectly on the Ohm Meter. So I disconnected the Thermal fuse's two plugs and taped them together (thus bypassing the fuse...just to validate). I turned the dryer on and bingo...heat. After that it just took 5 minutes to replace the Thermal Fuse.
