    The thermal fuse is designed to go out when the temperature is too high.  Over heating can be caused by a variety of things.   The most likely cause for no heat at this point is the heating element.  Take the element out of the dryer and inspect it.   It might be broken, or  it could have broken and then welded itself to the enclosure can.  This would cause an overheating  problem resulting in the thermal fuse going out and then no heat.
