Question about Whirlpool Dryers
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
If the high temperature limit switch was bad you would not get any heat at all.
I do not believe you have a control problem nor a heater problem.
What you have is a air flow problem. You are plugged up with lint in your hot air distribution manifold. You control is trying to get up to temperature but can not because not enough hot air is flowing.
This is a very common problem where people have to run the dryer 2 or 3 times to get the clothes dry.
The good news is it is a easy fix. In the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. It is held on by about 7 screws. You air blower in your dryer is at the bottom of this manifold. Un screw the manifold and pull straight out.
1.) Unplug your dryer.
2.) Remove the manifold screws.
3.) Pull the manifold straight out.
4.) Clean out the bottom of the manifold that is plugged up.
5.) Clean the fan wheel face and rotate to ensure it is free.
6.) Remove the vent connection from the dryer to the outside wall. Inspect and clean.
If the problem still exist please call me, Peter, Glen Burnie, MD 443-306-1362

SOURCE: There are two heat settings
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!
It sounds like the double switch is bad and only working on one setting! Or a 2 stage blower motor that needs to be replaced!needs to be replaced!
This is a situation that you will need service!
If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!
Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.
You will be fine now!

First disconnect the power to the dryer by unplugging it from the wall. Then remove the 3 screws on the lower panel of the dryer. This should expose the heating element in a metal housing on the right side of the dryer. Disconnect the 2 wires going to the heating element and slide it out of the housing. The heating element part number is 3387747.
