For Whirlpool Dryer Cycling Thermostat (Part Number: AP3131939)

My Kenmore Dryer 110.76662501 isn't heating up correctly. Sometimes it heats up and sometimes it doesn't. Timed Dry takes many cycles to dry anything. I've been using permanent press - more dry- and leave it on for a couple hours. it seams to dry ok. I tested the thermal fuse and the thermal cut-off thermostat pair and they have continuity. When I test this L155 cycling thermostat, I get continuity across the two big end terminals and no reading between the two inner small terminals. Is this my problem?
