The dryer would heat but would not tumble. After checking the belt (which was fine) we noticed the motor was not turning. It had power & would spin. We then replaced the thermol fuse & everything looked good & worked great for 1/2 hour & it blew the fuse again. We then checked for any obstructions to air flow & all areas where producing great. replaced the dryer cord as it looked a bit brown & old. Replaced the fuse again & yep....u guessed it it blew in a bit over 1/2 hour. Could the high limit thermostat be stuck or is this a board problem?

I meant to say that the motor (with the belt removed) would spin. In other words it had power & was not frozen up. A friend also suggested that we check the heat element to see if it had a sag in in that might ground or short out the machine... Could that be it?

do you mean the white thermal fuse, near the blower wheel housing? #7 or #9 ?
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.Posted Image

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.
