The dryer stopped heating, it would only blow cold air. I removed the back panel and tested the thermal fuse with a DMM. The fuse was open, so it was bad and I needed a new one. I tested the thermostat and the DMM measured continuity across the terminals, so I thought it was good, bad assumption. I ordered a thermal fuse from PartsSelect and it came with a thermostat. Like a dummy, I only installed the fuse. The 1st time I ran the dryer the fuse blew again, because the thermostat was bad. So, moral of the story, install both parts.
