I originally thought it was the heating element but I ruled that out after I took it off and looked at it. After that I took a volt o meter to check the high thermostat and low one also but both had power going to it. Once that was done I did the thermal limiter fuse and it was blown. All I had to do was unplug the dryer, take the back off of the dryer, then take two bolts out and replace the part it was so easy. Thanks for the part.
