I think JW is right. I believe that type of resistor runs hot and over time discolors from the heat, but I don't recall ever having to replace one.

JW I took a picture of the resistor and emailed it to you.  It was too big to post here.  I'm thinking it has to be that resistor judging from the fact it is split open to the point that i can see inside it.  I;ll get one tomorrow and let you know.

WPT thanks for the part number.

The image was too large to load here so I posted to Foggy's blog and then After posting it I saved the image again which was somehow re-sized by blogspot. It's even bigger here

Dryer just shut off on its own.  The operation was a success Dr.

Thank you all for your help.
