Latest update: Replaced control board and "BINGO"! Patient has recovered from surgery and is back to full working order. Stuck heater relay was definitely the culprit as there were tell tale signs of heat checking on one of the (2) connections. Heater element NEVER shut off creating overheating condition and blowing the high temp. limit fuse shutting down dryer. Many thanks to all you guys for your feedback. "BANZAI" !

Also is there any instruction/video for replacing the control board? Biggest issue appears to be accessing it. There are two screws on the back of the control panel. Is it that easy just removing them?

Mark, am leaning toward your diagnosis as have excellent airflow thru 4" aluminum vent exiting external wall of house 8 ft. away. Duct is clear and clean. Seems to blow fuse mostly when on casual cycle, but is too hot most of time on ANY temp. setting. When running dryer empty, aluminum vent is almost too hot to touch. There seems to be (2) control boards, (1) user control board and (1) main control board. Which one would it be? Thanks for the help.
