These two parts would keep the dryer from starting but were not my problem. I misdiagnosed this problem. Using a meter to check continuity across the terminals, I checked these two parts and one looked like it had resistance. It did and was suppose too. Not having anything to compare to I ordered both parts. The actual problem was a heat switch that is tucked around the back of the dryer, up against the heating element. It has two white wires running to it. I tested it and it was open. When I joined the wires together, my dryer worked.
