Why do the thermal fuses keep blowing on my Kenmore model 110.60884990 dryer?

Thanks LYLE W for your previous answer and here is some additional information that might be helpful. The hose is absolutely clear and it is only a few inches long and then it goes straight through an outside wall. There is a vent cover outside with a flap that seems to operate. It rattles when it is windy outside so it moves then. I clean the lint filter screen every drying operation, and don't dry my towels in it so there is no big lint items being dried.

I have had the dryer about 7 years and have replaced the fuse 3 maybe 4 times.

I stopped using the sensor to dryness feature after the first blown fuse and only use timed drying now.

I am hoping this extra info might cut down on the possible problems you mentioned.
