I borrowed a continuity tester and a bag of old hi limit switches from my father in law since he seems to collect them! LOL!  From the diagram numero 3 and numero 1 were the culprits.   Numero 3 has been replaced already.  I will now beat the crap out of numero 1. If that does not work I will pay the 30.00 for the replacment since there does not seem to be a match in the goodie bag I was given.

Temporarily jump the wires out on the part and see if it heats.
If yes, spend the bucks for the part.
If no, keep checking.

If you decide to dry clothes with that puppy jumped out, sit there and baby sit it. Don't go to the 4th of july picnic or there might be some extra fireworks this year.

Well I played whack a limit switch for a few... checked with the continuity tester and low and behold we were reading some ohms.

Thanks to all for the advice and tips.   

When I went to purchase numero 3 (from diagram ) from a place called Marcone they sold it individually and it was a whirlpool part.

Probably sold ye a 250 degree limit.
 The bottom larger dude is a 250 f limit that did not shut down as it was supposed do so the 300 degree smaller limit popped. If it was to some reason quit then the skinny white duct fuse would blow at 350 degrees. So this dryer is chock full of all manor of safety redundancy.
