Empty load, regular cycle, hi-heat

The temp is being checked at rear vent. When checked empty it will top out At about 165 to 170 and go on and off like it's supposed to but wit medium load on timed dry high heat will stop at around 120.

... but wit medium load on timed dry high heat will stop at around 120.

1) then everything is working OK

2) I don't know.. doesn't make sense .... maybe the clothes are too wet (not spun-out by washer)

Measured with an infra-red thermometer or a mechanical one ?

Dryer uses the same heater and thermostats whether there's clothes or not

JUST PUT IN A VERY GOOD SIZE LOAD IN THE ELITE OASIS  WILL FIND OUT IN 60 MINS IF ITS DRIED.  OTHER DRYERS I HAVE TESTED USUALLY NEED ABOUT 20 TO 25 MINS OF NONSTOP FLAMES FOR IT TO REACH 150 OR MORE.  BUT THESE 5 DRYERS ARE THE THORNE IN MY SIDE ITS A MISSION NOW TO FIGURE THEM OUT AT ALL COST.  BUD LIGHT TIME.

WELL THE ELITE OASIS DID CYCLE UP TO ABOUT 160 ALBITE A LOT LONGER DUE TO THE FACT THAT SIGNIFICANT OTHER THINKS SHE CAN CATCH UP ON LAUNDRY BY DOUBLING UP THE LOAD SIZE.  SO ANY SUGGESTIONS?
