For Whirlpool Dryer Heating Element Kit (Part Number: AP4242494)

My dryer is taking two cycles to dry the clothes. I have cleaned out the exhaust line and the lint trap but it still takes longer particularly on heavier clothes such as towels. The element is heating. Could it be the element still or something else. I measured across the element and it seems to be good. It measures around 13 ohms. Any ideas?

ANSWER Hello Johnny, Based on the information provided it may be the cycling thermostat or high limit that may be causing problem. Check your blower wheel as well to make sure that there is not heavy lint build up on the wheel.
