I removed the back panel with a 1/4" nut driver and
replaced the thermal fuse in the same manner since it was held in by another 1/4" sheet metal screw attached to the internal vent.The fuse is easy since you just pull the wires with minature plugs off and replace in the same way. I then replaced the back panel, plugged the unit back in and Presto! I had a working gas dryer again.
One piece of advice, check the thermal fuse first
if you have no heat. That because it is the easist part to repair and most likely the culprit. One more thing is to keep the lint filter clean at all times! That might prevent this type of failure from ever happening.
