Dried 4 loads of laundry yesterday, 3loads were steaming hot and dry, 4th load was cold and wet. Did and changed nothing different with dryer. Replaced the element 5months ago along with 2 sensors. What do you think went wrong?

A model number may help others help you.

Check your power first.
Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times, sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
If this does nothing, check the voltage at the plug
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
If OK
Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
If OK
Check the power at the terminal strip.
Be careful as 240 volts is lethal !!!
