Gas dryer drum turns but no heat

Gas dryer drum turns but no heat

I have the Kenmore Elite Gas Dryer model number 110.74982300. The drum turns but no heat. All lint vents are clear of debris/lint. I have tested the Thermister (approx. 11K ohms), Thermal fuse (0 ohms), High limit Thermostat (0 ohms), Radiant sensor (0 ohms), Ignitor (0 ohms), Coils 1 to 2 1340 ohms, 1 to 3 549 ohms, 4 to 5 1289 ohms. All seem to be in the correct ranges.  Ignitor does not glow and thus no heat provided.

ANSWERS:

"Check for continuity with a multimeter:

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn't heat, but the drum turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is blown, it will have to be replaced."
