After evry whs my clothes ome out filled with lint. I cleaned the lint valve on the tp but I still have the problem
Have you cleaned out the vent in the back of the dryer? This could part of the problem.

Those are likely possibilities. Also check the wiring for disconnected or burned terminals especially in areas that get hot. The element comes out easily to visually check it for breaks. If that's OK I'd look at the safety thermostat.

Turn off your breakers, then back on to insure a good reset. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug and then to the back of the dryer. You are getting some heat which tells me that one leg of power is out. I don't think it is your element, because you get some heat. Let me know how you do.

If your duet isn't heating properly and you have taken care of the lint problem then you could have one of two problems. Either you have a bad heating element or you have a bad fuse or temperature sensor.
If your dryer is not heating at all then it is most likely the fuse or temp sensor. If it is heating and just not enough it is probably a bad heating element.
Both problems would require a repairman to come and fix normally, however if you believe it is the heating element that can usually be replaced by the homeowner without too much trouble. Just make sure to ask where it is located from whatever place you but the new element from.

To remove the dryer drum baffles on a Whirlpool Duet, follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer.
2. Remove the top panel of the appliance by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
3. Locate the bolts that hold the baffles in place on the outside perimeter of the drum. There should be 2 for each one.
4. Remove the screws for the baffle and it will come off.
1. Remove ONE baffle at a time so you can use the remaining baffles to turn the drum manually.
2. Drum rotates in a clockwise direction.
3. When removing or reinstalling each baffle, duct taping it place will keep it from flipping around when you get to the last bolt holding it in place. It will also keep it from dropping in the drum when removing, and help you hold it in place to reinstalling.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
