Unplugged the dryer, removed the venting, cleaned the venting to the outside using a plumber's snake and cotten rag attached to the snake, removed the back of the dryer, confirmed that the connections and wiring was intact. Secured the make and model of the dryer and headed to the computer. I searched for possible issues and solutions and found this site with diagrams and parts listings. I ordered the parts online and they arrived really quick (about two work days). Parts were exactly as advertised, they actually fit and were easy to install. Put the dryer back together and turned it on. It started heating just fine. I spent about $48.00 for what would have been a $150 service call plus parts. Very pleased with the on-line instructions and simplicity. Keep up the good work and THANK YOU.
