Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Dryer heats sometimes and not others

Hi, my Whirlpool LTE5243D stacked dryer has not been working properly--it heats sometimes but not others.  I've tried running different cycles (including the timed high heat cycle which does not sense moisture), cleaned the lint, and checked to see if everything was attached properly.  Unfortunately, I don't have much other experience with dryers.  Has anyone experienced this problem or have an idea/solution?
Thanks

Couple things this could be lets start obvious
faulty door switch even though door latches doesnt mean its working properly
bad guages easy to check dont have to run dryer just guages
turn on setting let run threw cycle if it stops on cycle and dont move for a length of time this will be the problem

these 2 things are main causes of why a machine wont work or partcially works at times everything else is easy
