This was incredibly easy. After visiting this site and diagnosing the problem based on other's responses, I went ahead and ordered the recommended parts. When the parts arrived a few days later I went back on to the website to watch the repair videos. After viewing the videos one time, which took a total of about 10 minutes, I jumped up, grabbed my cordless driver, the appropriate socket and a pair of needle nosed pliers (as recommended in the video). With no exaggeration, whatsoever, I removed the back of the dryer, replaced the cycling thermostat and the thermal fuse and had the back in place and the dryer ready to run in under 5 minutes! My wife and I were both very surprised. The best news is that it fixed our problem. For weeks, the local repairman kept telling us that we just needed to clean out the dryer vent and make sure that there were no bends in the dryer flex hose. At first, we were very frustrated that he wouldn't check out the dryer in more detail, but now we are very grateful that he didn't because the cost of the parts was considerably less than the repair bill would have been. Thanks PartSelect! What a truly incredible parts AND service website!
I know I shouldn't wish this, but I almost can't wait until the next time something breaks down! PartSelect will be my first stop! (I'm knocking on every piece of wood I can find!)

Thanks Again!
