It would be a good idea to check the heater, and the vent , I would also recomend checking the lint filter, to be sure it is clear.

The dryer would heat but would not tumble.
I meant to say that the motor (with the belt removed) would spin.
In other words it had power & was not frozen up.
so... the Motor runs with the Belt removed,
but with the Belt installed, the Motor won't run nor turn the Drum ?

Definitely time to check the element for sagging to ground. You can put a meter on it (unplug the dryer first!!!), and check for continuity from one of the element leads to ground. Better yet, unscrew the 2 1/4" screws on each side of the element, pull it down and out and visually inspect the element.
We then replaced the thermol fuse & everything looked good & worked great for 1/2 hour & it blew the fuse again.
This is what you might find. http://neighboursapp...ng-element.html
