Good morning and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Samsung Dryer.

Have you seen any error codes or flashing lights or is it completely dead?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
No error codes seen
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Completely dead other than light in drum working

OK, then I am afraid, the control board is faulty and will need replacement.

Have you tested the thermostat ?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Is the Thermistor the same as thermal fuse?

Please click here, that is only thermistor in this model and then there is touch sensor board.
