I down loaded the dryer schematic and itentified items that would potentially cause the observed symptoms. Initially, I replaced the thermal fuse. After the symptoms returned after two loads, suspected the hi limit thermostat not regulating the heater element temperature. I located the thermostat using the illustrated parts list on your website and replaced the thermal fuse (second time) and the thermostats using a nut driver. The Blond hasn't announced a dryer stoppage since the repair, so I'm pronouncing the repair a success. Thank you for making the drawings and schematics available.
