If you have tried all of that then the only other thing it could be is a ventilation problem. Try checking for any obvious clogs of lint in the vent line at the dryer or side of the house where air exits. If no obvious issues then attach an electric leaf blower to the dryer side of the vent and let blow for 5 min. This should break loose any lint in between and you will see the results at the end of the line on the ground. If your vent is really long and you still cant get it all out then you may have to consider replacing the vent hose.. Hope this helps.. Thanks

I have a similar problem. But I will provide a little bit of history first. My dryer just doesn't get hot enough (approx 100 degrees just prior to the exhaust vent). Three years ago, I had the same...

If the gas cycles on and off I do not think the coils are a problem.  Sounds like the flame sensor is not working correctly.  The flame sensor keeps the gas valve open after the ignitor shuts off.  Then the temperature sensor shuts off the gas when temperature limit is reached.  When the dryer cools down the gas cycle starts again (usually much more than 30 seconds).

Over the weekend, I notice a bird flying in and out of my dryer vent... then our Kenmore electric dryer stopped heating. I'm think that there wasn't enough airflow and the thermo-fuse probably blew... What...

Ah Yes! the old bird in the dryer vent problem!
I would say you are correct. The thermo-fuse blew because of not enough air flow through the heat tunnel.
You probably have a nest in your vent line now.
Clear the entire line from machine outward, replace flex hose if needed and get a new outlet cover with the flaper door on it.
I avoid the ones with screens on the outlet, because it catches lint.
Except in severe cases where a mouse or some other varmit has figure out how to lift the door.

Dryer not heating hot enough to dry

Check for a clog in the piping, Make sure the squirrel fan you replaced not backwards, also visually check an see if the heating element is glowing completly red, if not it's probley getting only 120 volts, not getting 240 volts, if that be the case you'll need a new switch. There are about three switches that could cause that problem, the high temp switch, low temp switch or the timer switch.

If the door switch was a 3 terminal device, and all three terminals had a wire going to them, did you get the NO and NC wires connected to the right place?

You should be able to follow the circuit that can be found on the back service panel or inside the control head.

Let me know what you find or if you have any more questions.
