After getting the parts I remove the flex pipe then remove the back cover of the Dryer, then I discover a bird in the exhaust flex pipe and another one stock in the blower fan. The Birds was preventing the air from escaping from within the dryer and as a result we were getting a lot of steam build up inside the dryer. Once I removed the birds I went ahead and replace the parts anyway and the dryer has been working fine ever since. Replace the flex line. (The old parts are still good.)
