Hello, my dryer does dry clothes but it is taking longer than normal. It is taking 1.5 to 2 cycles in the accudry cycle, which works better than timed drying. I have continuity in the thermostat near the blower, in the heating element and the fuse. I was not able to check the thermostat as suggested to see if what temperature it cuts out at. What part/parts do you recommend I replace. Thank you for your input.

Dryer will blow hot air only for a short time, then blows cold air. Replaced the timer, however was sent a bad timer from manufacturer,(would not count off time correctly), but still did the same thing when installed. Put old timer back on, do I need thermister, or high limit thermostat or both?
