If an electric dryer doesn't run then the thermal fuse would be the place to start. It can be checked for continuity if a meter is available. It can be bypassed to check if a meter is not available. It is accessed by removing the rear panel. From the description you give access may be a problem. If you do try to access the thermal fuse then please remember to unplug the unit first.

Thanks for the replies. Answered my question - it is going to be lot of expensive work removing a toilet to allow the unit to be pulled out far enough to remove the back panel. Only here for 3 months we'll manage without a dryer !!!!
