I took the top off of the dryer to access the door switch. Took the number off the part and went to Trible's appliance parts and got a replacement. Works fine now.

Your complaint is:"Our dryer, described below, takes between 4 and 6 hours to dry, though it's advertised as "heavy duty" and "extra large capacity.""

Based on the information provided above, I am unable to provide a positive solution to your issue. Your model number is incomplete! I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search. This information is for a non-specific brand model, gas dryer.
This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.
You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these:
Flame sensor/gas valve
Lint Filter Vent: Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Also note that, to maximize drying efficiency, the vent should be as short as possible.
Flame sensor or gas valve coils: This is the most likely cause. Click links below. http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3449&PPStack=1 http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3229&PPStack=1 There's a flame sensor near the igniter. If it's defective, the gas may shut off prematurely. Another common problem occurs when one of the electrical coils on the gas valve fails intermittently. If this happens, the flame shuts off before the thermostat sends a signal, which can greatly prolong the drying time. If the sensor or the coils are causing the flame to shut off, replace them.
Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

I was just looking for a part for mine, too. On the tag inside the front door is the pre-printed prefix 110. that goes with the 86950100 that's printed later. So, I entered 110.86950100 and found the information for my model.
My unit has been working reliably for many years now, and some parts are not available anymore. I think I bought it in about 1985. I replaced a thermal cut-off switch in 2009 for $15 locally. I also have a matching washer. I've never had any failures with it. Bear in mind that I was single for 20 of those years with only a few girlfriend-hours on them. :-)
The direct link to Sears parts for my specific model is http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.86950100.
Hope this helps.
