My Repair & Advice

Researched on the internet what may cause this problem? As a result apparently heating element needed to be checked for replacement. During dryer disassembly I noticed seal between drum and front cover was not in place , however I continued to disassemble to check element . Element was good. At that point I put dryer back together, reinstalling seal the way I thought it should fit. Days later while running dryer it would stop periodically like it was overheating . Now I thought the thermostat was bad? When I went to the nearest supply store they would not sell me a thermostat because they said I had exhaust problem. They felt the heat was not exiting machine and I should check outlet pipe. I took machine apart again and sure enough gasket had moved again. This time replaced gasket for $10.00 and had to secure in place and dryer is drying like new !!
