try to get the manual for the dryer you got and locate the moisture sensor if this sensor is bad what happen is that the automatic timer thinks that the clothes still wet and continues to dry once the sensor detects no moisture then it shut off the dryer normally is located behind the dryer on the exit line of the air duct and tested for conductivity and see if is good or not

Inside the drum under the filter is 2 long skinny strips of metal mounted in plastic. Clean then sensors up with alcohol. They get goop on them from soap and fab softener. I have a manual here that feature auto sensing circuits and photos CLICK HERE FOR THE MANUAL

if you have all those parts , i would indeed replace them all. it will allow your entire heating circuit to strat fresh
just ensure all your paddle connections are tight
but check your heater for continuity too

Testimonial: "Thanks, I'll replace everything! "
in this case we put the lower temp thermostat in the oven at 170 degrees till it was hot and measured with ohm meter and it was open. After it cooled down some it went back to being a short. Now with this part in the dryer and the new high temp thermostat
and it blew shortly after being turned on. A possiblity is that there is a short by passing the 150 degree thermostat and the element keeps being on and causes the 350 degree thermostate to blow.
