Major Appliances/Kenmore Dryer

Question
QUESTION: I have a Kenmore HE2 Electric dryer model 110.87562602, serial number MW0301570.  Everything appears to be normal - the lights all work, the control panel lights up but when I push the start button, nothing happens.   An "F-01" code flashes after a few seconds or when I push the stop button.
Sears wants either $209 for a repair program or $75 just to come look at it.  I would rather put the money into a new dryer or try and fix it myself, if possible.
Please advise.

Thank you

ANSWER: According to the service manual.....F-01 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control electronics.  This is not always the facts.  An open thermal fuse or a simple burnt connection on the back side of the main electronic control.  Can you check these for me?

QUESTION: I took off the front panel and don't see anything suspicious with the wiring. Where would I check for the thermal fuse?

Answer
The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing.  It is a little white piece of plastic with two small 3/16 inch terminals attached to it.  Remove one of the wires and then check continuity on this item.  Let us know what you find.
