Checked PartsSelect.com, and used the solution ideas to check each component until I verified that it was the Hi-Limit thermostat that had failed. Verified that with a multimeter. Then I ordered the parts and put them in. Little issues other than dropped screws, but that was a good thing, as it forced me to take the front of the dryer off (again with coaching from partsselect), and that caused me to discover a much worse lint clogging issue than I had thought I had. Spend a good 30 minutes digging lint out of the front of the dryer, and then the hose and connection to the out-vent. All to the good. Dryer works like a champ again. Thanks!
