The heating element on my clothes dryer keeps getting hot than goes off and my dryer only gets warm is the heating element bad?

The element is working, but the thermostat may be bad, therefore the element comes on and then goes off making the dryer only warm and not hot. This will require using a multimeter and testing the thermostats and other parts. Be sure all the settings are correct on the dryers heat settings before you begin troubleshooting.
