Replaced front high limit thermostat worked for a week and blew again. Checked all venting and there is no air flow issue. Could it be the rear thermostat making the front one blow?
Answer Hello Kim. You will need to check and see if the heater is over heating and causing the issues with the unit. If so, the cycling thermostat on the unit may need to be replaced.
The dryer runs, not for alotted time and the air is warm, been runnig a load all day and not drying, put it on manual for 60 minutes and went for about 10 and stopped.
Answer Hello Clark,
You will want to check your thermostats and heater for continuity. Also check the venting from blower motor all the way to the outside of unit. A clogged vent will cause moisture to stay trapped in unit causing long dry times. The hi limit thermostat could be cycling too quickly which would cause the dryer to not heat properly. You could check to see if you are getting 120 vac to each side of the heater if you are not then you will need to test the circuit to the supply. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Dryer is not drying. Just replaced the heater assembly. With new thermostat and other sensor I forget it's name. But everything is spinning and it's blowing air out the back. I'm lost. What can this be?
Answer Hello Chayse. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity.

Does not completely dry towels in one cycle. Lately, have to run dryer twice.
Answer Hello Frank. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. Hope this helps.
