Hello all, my kitchen aide dryer very recently began to not heat as well. When it is running I can tell there is warmth in drum and good flow outside and all the vents are clear. I know this all electric dryer contains a heating element and cut offs, I am just not sure what to check since it is heating mildly. Any advice

those are 0 but its cool. I would start by checking the exaust temps with the dryer vent disconnected. Second, with the dryer unpluged, check to be sure the heater isn't grounded out, a quick visual inspection, or with a vom meter will do. the heater is part number 17 below, then check the cycling tstat, part number 7 below. You will need to check the cycling tstat after the unit has cycled off the heater. IE get it hot then it should be open, closed when cool. Also check the high limit on the heater, closed, or continuty. Part number 15 below. also the thermal fuses part number 8. Posted Image

OR, is it that the Washer is no longer Spinning all of the water out ?

Dryer Vent
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F
Disconnect the Dryer Vent check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.
