After opening the rear cover to the control panel, I located a schematic diagram of the dryer which greatly aided in the repair. I began troubleshooting using the half-split method this required removal of the back and front covers). I found voltage at the input of the thermal fuse but none at the output. I then removed the thermal fuse to do a continuity check on the fuse and it revealed a defective thermal fuse. The fuse was held in place by 1, 1/4" head machine screw. I placed the part on order through PartSelect.com. The part was shipped the next day and received the day after that. I installed the new thermal fuse and all is well in my household (now that the dryer works again).
