Top of cabinet was getting to hot and now dryer has stop heating.
You will want to test the thermal fuse for failure. If the thermal fuse fails then the unit will not heat. If it has failed then you will want to check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of your home for clogging. A clogged vent is one of the most common reasons for failure of the thermal fuse WE4M137.
