Lightbulb Dryer not heating or spinning

I'm a little stuck here dryer stopped working about 10 days ago. I first replaced the Thermal Fuse and belt worked for one load of laundry then it stopped. Dryer will turn on and act like it is starting but then it won't heat or spin. I then replaced the thermister, another thermal fuse, thermst-fix, and belt switch; it did the same thing work for a load then stopped. Not exactly what else to do now?

You will need a meter to test anything, Need to take lower panel off and behind lint chute there is a thermo fuse. Needs to show continuity. Also either in panel or tapes to inside side there is a tech sheet. Won't be to much help but will have wiring diagram that will help.

I bet you have long dry times also. Clean the vent to the outside. Way to check is take off vent tube from dryer and feel air flow, reconnect vent and go outside and feel air flow. Should be about the same. Vents are the #1 cause of dryer failure.
