Dryer seems to work ok, but does not get hot enough. I was wanting to know about how long should the heating element should stay on. When you have the door open and turn on the unit, it only stays on for 30 seconds or so and then it takes a good while for the element to come back on. I think its the cycle thermostat what advice could you give me thanks for your time.

ANSWER Josh, Based on the information provided it does sound like there is an issue with the cycling thermostat. You will also want to check to make sure that the venting from the blower wheel to the outside of your home is clean and clear with no restrictions as this can cause the unit to short cycle.
