My dryer was getting hot but the drum would not turn. I ran a check and found the thermal fuse was blown. I ordered two of them, one of which I used to replace the old one and kept the other as a back up. Well, my wife only used the dryer twice and the fuse went out again. I had already cleaned all the vents and under and around the dryer and even had my wife scrub the dryer lint trap. I watched a couple of your videos and the one with the thermal cutoff said I should replace the Hi Line thermostat when I replace the thermal fuse, that information would have been helpful in the thermal fuse video. I am ordering the thermal cutoff kit and am going to replace it with the thermal fuse. If you can think of another reason why it will heat but not turn the drum, please let me know. It seems to work when I replace the thermal fuse, but perhaps I am missing something else!!
ANSWER Hello Jody. Check and see if the heater is grounded or if the cycling thermostat is bad and letting the dryer overheat. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
