thanks for your reply, sorry it took so long to get back to this.

 I think it was a lock problem, I read a similar problem on a different make/model that suggested that and told my friend to try unlocking it . he was able to get it working.

 

thanks for your advice CHAT_IN_FL

just wanted to update

while installing the new thermal fuse I also replaced the high limit thermostat in the heater housing and the thermistor in the blower housing. even though they checked good, they were cheap to replace while I was in there.

 

doing the suggested checks, everything seem to check good

no heat while in the fluff cycle

heat turned off when door open

output temp at vent with empty load on high heat  150-170, med heat 132-155, lowest heat 105-118

ran dryer for 20 min on high heat without blowing thermal fuse.

 

plan to install dryer this weekend, and will redo vent for little or no flex, and hopefully no way they can kink it.

 

thanks regus and john for your patience and help

so one of the high limits on the heater housing is the thermal fuse that is tripping out permanetly, the other should trip first and reset when cooled? and the main controller is what realy cycles the heaters with the reading from the thermistor in the blower housing?

thank you for your reply.
I will check the air temp at the rear as you suggest, when I get the parts I've ordered.
and I plan to get rid of the flex and use rigid when reinstalling.
I will also check for no heated air when on fluff, but what is the best way to check the heating element when the door is open?
also I'm a little unclear, is the high limit thermostat on the heater assem. what controls the heater element on/off during normal cycle? and what role does the high limit thermostat in the blower housing play?
