Removed front bottom cover and located the thermal fuse. Checked for open circuit with a multi-meter. Found that the fuse had blown, and then ordered the replacement fuse. Before installing the new fuse, I cleaned out as much lint as possible from the dryer duct hose and inside cabinet of dryer. Installed new fuse. Pretty easy, two connections to un-connect and one screw holding the fuse in place. Drawings from this site made locating the part pretty simple.
