Question about Maytag Centennial MEDC400VW 7.0 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White
The likelihood of a second element failure is very remote, unless the element suffered some damage, like bending or chipping.
It seems more likely that you have a thermal limiter that is opening. There can be two or more, and they are in series with the power to the element.
Unplug the dryer and test the thermal limiters.
Another area to look at is the control switch. Long story short, there is a ton of current going to the element. The contacts in the switch can carbon up and overheat.
