We have to run the dryer three times to dry the clothes all the way. I have took out the filter and unhooked the exhaust and checked the different settings and it still not working right. Could it be the heating element?

ANSWER Eric, there is a remote possibility that the element is separated and causing a low heat situation, but it's very remote. When you removed the lint filter did you check for a lint build up in the duct to the blower ? You should also remove the front panel and check the blower seal for a tight fit, we could be sucking cool air into the blower and causing the thermostat to cycle improperly. From there, go with a new thermostat and thermostat heater 503979 61623 after you check the heater element for breakage. Thanks and Good Luck
