It's Google once again!
Simple search for:
Wgd6400sw1 parts

Google

After the ADs, the next 3 listings are for PartsSelect, AppliancePartsPro, and SearsPartsDirect.
Select any one of these websites and then select the diagram of "Cabinet Parts" and part 24 is the Dryer Door Catch. I'm guessing by your description this is what is broken.
All 3 are good companies to buy from.

It may be your dryer vent piping. If the piping from the dryer to the outside of the house is clogged with lint (which happens periodically) the dryer cannot get rid of the heat generated by the gas burner. When the temperature reaches a certain level the high limit switch opens and shuts the burner off. The switch closes again after the dryer cools down. Check the lint filter and all the vent piping for any obstructions and clean out thoroughly. This should solve your problem. Hope this helps.

does your dryer have a dry sensor ? if so try changing the dial to a different setting that doesn't use the sensor, also some models have a separate button to turn off the dry sensor. it is meant to save energy if your clothes are dry before the time you set

Burrs? Where? Inside the drum? I would use a Dremel Motor Tool with a polishing or buffing wheel.

Either your mister (mistor? mist-er?) is working overtime, or else your dryer vent is clogged.

Yes, there are a couple of fuses inside your dryer, but they don't look like normal, common, household or electronic fuses. Usually one fuese will interrupt the heater circuit, while another one will kill power to the whole dryer.

Should just remove the screws and the lock and flip them over. Generally very easy and quick

it can be replaced but the new one will look just like in a few weeks anyway. Its just thin sheet steel uncoated and the heat comes right through that vent that is why it looks like that as far as rough edges just use a piece of sand paper or emory board or steel wool and rub it smooth. suff gets caught on the grate and the heat can burn it all the black is lint that melted on it but a new one look just like it in like i said a few weeks but to be safe and make sure its not getting to hot get a thermometer and check the temperature during low heat and high heat drying. low around 135f and high around 160f if it goes up over 170 there is a problem you may want a pro to check the unit.

Broken belt.

Depending on your level and ability, it's not really very hard to replace. Heres a YouTube video describing how to do this.
