Dryer keeps tripping the circuit breaker. I believe it is caused by a faulty limit switch, Part # 279054. Does this sound possible?

Our Dryer runs but does not heat. It was running really hot about a week ago and then all of a sudden it only puts out cold air no heat at all. Could this be the result of the thermostat went bad or the heating elements. Thank you Wanda
