Maytag DE412 seems to be too hot (really hot) even on low temp

Resolved Question:

Maytag DE412 seems to be too hot (really hot) even on low temp setting. Vent clear and cleaned just in case. Filter clean. Airflow strong (checked at exit from machine). Notice heaters glowing even on air fluff cycle. Ideas? Schematic anyone?
