Default Whirlpool electric dryer keeps shorting out elements

I am actually an appliance repair tech and I am having a weird problem that I can't figure out and would love some help. I called Whirlpool directly but as usual they gave me form read information that proved unhelpful. I have a customer whose heating element has shorted out three times in the last six months. The first time I replaced it and it shorted out about a month later I assumed I had a defective element but now it has happened two more times in the last 5 months and I simply can not find the culprit. I have changed all the thermostats and checked for proper venting etc but still the elements seem to last about a month or two at most. Has anyone else experienced this and found a resolution?
