Check if the thermostats in rear part of dryer are covered with lint. take power off to dryer and remove back panel you will see 2 or 3 thermostats if there is a lot of lint around them carefully remove lint. if that doesn't solve problem make sure clothes are coming out of washer spun dry enough .. check lint screen on dryer. is the vent clear all the way outside ?, in winter little critters like to set up housekeeping in vents where the temperature warms them up. you can also check if heat is cycling open door to dryer and press the door button, start dryer and observe heater , it will come on then shut down and it should come back on in a minute or two, if it doesn't come back on the cycling thermostat may be at fault

Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO

replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer

The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

Needs 2 drying cycles

I am assuming you are cleaning the lint filter. Check the vent pipe out the back. If it vents into the wall, the piping leading to outside may be plugged. Your washer is spinning the clothes good, right? If the clothes are excessively wet they will take longer to dry also. If its practical, remove the vent hose and let it dry blowing into the room. It may suck but just once for a test.
