Thermostat, internal - bias Part Number: AP3045874. This has 4 leads (2 red/red white wire) & (2 violet). I have continuity across the red, but no continuity across the violet. Is the Thermostat bad?

I recently replaced a bad thermal cutoff because our element was not heating at all. I also vacuumed out the entire machine. Once I installed the new thermal cutoff, it seemed to be working great. However, about two weeks later the new thermal cutoff went bad too. What could be causing them to fail? I have tested the cycle thermostat and it has continuity at room temp. I don't have a way to accurately measure the temperature, but when I put it on a skillet on my electric stove it does click and lose continuity once it's heated up, but (like I said) I don't know exactly at what temperature it switches off.

The dryer will dry properly on high, heating element works fine. Is intermittent on Medium (where we use it most). Sometimes it will not heat at all. Turning the dryer to high will cause it to work and dry the clothes. Could this be the cycle thermostat?

This dryer is leaving the clothes damp at the end of the timed cycle. Washer is spinning out clothes. Exhaust temps. on high heat timed dry cycle at 160 deg F. down to 125 deg F. Cleaned and checked all thermostats. Exhaust vent less than one foot to outside wall(cleaned/checked) Timer counts down seems to function fine. Temp. switch cycles at 154 deg F at medium setting and no heat at air fluff setting. Blower wheel tight not clogged. Nothing blocking front of dryer, good airflow. where do i go from here? Thanks
