Dryer stopped heating checked vent and vent duct all clear. So I replaced heating element, dryer still not heating. What is most likely the problem dryer cycling thermostat, dryer thermal fuse, or dryer thermal cut off?

My dryer has 4 cycles - Auto Dry High Temp, Auto Dry Low Temp, Timed Dry High Temp and Fluff. We normally use Auto Dry Low to prevent shrinking any clothing. Recently, the dryer doesn't seem to want to stop running and the heat doesn't ramp down during that cycle. The timer knob also doesn't move as it did when the cycle ran correctly. Initially, I thought maybe some kind of moisture sensor needed to be replaced. I don't have the money to pay someone to repair it and am quite capable myself. Can you direct me as to what to replace?

I just ordered the thermal cut off kit and it looks like the right part. Problem is the connectors. When I stripped the wire and put on the new connectors, one of them broke off on the side and it doesn't stay connected on the wire. Can you please send me new connectors or at least post a link to buy some extras if it's not expensive? Please help. Thank you, Zachary

Dryer has low heat and takes 3-4 times to dry clothes, the vent is clean. I'm sure it's the heating element that needs to be replaced, just want to double check before I spend $50 dollars for the part.

I changed out the dryer thermal fuse, thermal cut off kit, cycling thermostat and heat element. My dryer is still cold. The dryer does get hot but only for a short while.

Hi....I have just replaced the heating element and now am in the process of replacing the thermal cut off kit (#279816). The video you have shows 2 red wires and 1 orange. My unit only has 2 red wires. One red comes from the cycling sensor and the other is from the main wiring harness and leads under the dryer (not sure what that one goes to). However, my question is which red wire do I connect the jumper wire to. Does the jumper wire connect to the red wire that is part of the main wiring harness and then connect to the thermostat and the other end of the jumper to the element connector? Then would the red wire from the cycling sensor connect to the other connector on the element? If this is correct, I'm guessing nothing connects to the upper connector on the thermostat..is that correct?

So my dryer runs hot. The heating element does not turn off. What part/ parts do I replace? I already ordered PS344510. This is the cycling thermostat. Do I need any other parts?
