I researched the probable cause online with Google, found it to be a Thermal Fuse located within the Hotair return duct of the Dryer. A simple continuity check is all it takes to determine if the Thermal fuse was Blown. The Dryer Seal was a little trikier but not too hard either, a little glue afte cleaning the surfaces with Acetone. PartsSelect came through with the right parts at the right price! I'll be back for more parts when needed. Thanks Ken L.
