The vent is clear what was done replaced the heater box shroud seal on bottom rear  of dryer and  safety limit cause the safety limit blew and at the time I checked heater element continuity it was good dryer was at that time not hot enough been using it like that till now.  The heater element is on the rt side floor of the dryer both cycle thermostat and thermostat have continuity 2 of them located directly under the lint screen they are the originals. I Have to run the dyer more then once and this is on cottons high heat setting automatic drying cycle on timer.  What should the drum tempature be with wet clothes and or just dry clothes in it? thank you in advance

Your dryer exhaust vent should read 120-160f depending on your cycling thermostat.

Just because a thermostat has continuity at room temp does not mean it is not short cycling or opening too early. Also did you check your element for grounding..ie one of the coils could be broken and shorting against the metal case. You will read continuity but the shorted element may only be energizing part of the coils.
