I have a roper electric dryer model# REX4634KQ0 that is taking too long to dry. I read that sometimes the heating element burns out but can still heat up enough to glow red but not hot enough to dry the clothes. Is this true? I also checked the thermostats and only one of them gave me a low reading. How do you check the heating element properly because it does heat up but I am only eye balling it. Also is there any other possible solutions besides cleaning the vents. Thanks for your help.

test the dryer with the vent off  let it run for about 5 minutes   If the dryer is nice and hot inside   you have a bad vent plain and simple      roper elements arent known to half way work.....   so if ya have it most likely ya have a bad vent      check that first !!!

The element is good or not, no in between.  Heats or does not if broken.  The air is blocked from the dryer to the outside.  Clear the restriction from the dryer to the outside before you burn your dryer up and have more problems.
