Dryer would run, but no heat.
This is more a word of caution than instructions. The inlet control thermostat should be around 100 k ohms at room temp not 10 k ohms as I was quoted. I ordered one and after receiving it found out the "faulty" one and the new one were only 2 ohms difference.

The center outlet thermistor should also be around 120 k ohms at room temp. The faulty one was reading about 145 k ohms. It does heat now, and hopefully after replacing the elements it will be right again.

The drum bearing slides made a huge improvement!!

For the first time trying to repair an appliance I'd say the whole thing went fairly well, but with my mechanical and electronics backgrounds I did have an advantage. The hardest part was figuring out how to get the thing apart to get inside in the first place.
