Question
Kenmore Dryer 110.62802101, Serial # MP3069964.  Suddenly doesn't work at all upon pressing buttons.  No hum or sound whatsoever.  Checked circuit breaker and plug and seems OK.  Quick search suggests thermal fuse, start switch, or door switch.  Where best to start?

Answer
In the back of the dryer, remove the cover and down in the blower housing area is a white thermal fuse.  About the size and shape of the little finger on your hand... two wires going to it... it can be removed and tested for continuity...power must be able to pass through it... that is where I would start...and if it is blown, that tells you there is an air circulation problem... that must be dealt with or the part will simply blow again.
