Default Dryer temperature is just warm not hot

I have cleaned the machine including the lint trap and the vent to the outside.The inside of the dryer is warm but not hot. I do not know how to figure out if the problem is a faulty manual reset fuse,the elements or the main circuit board. The dryer used to dry quickly but now as I said the temperature in the dryer just seems warm. I also thought in the past when I have taken off the front panel I could see the elements were a glowing red and now I do not see that..... The dryer is a Fischer Paykel top loader. Thanks Judy
I have full 240 power at the dryer outlet. I moved the dryer to get behind it to check and then when I turned the dryer on again the coils got red and the dryer heated. Then when I moved the dryer again it did not heat. I think that must mean there is a break in the heating elements? Can anyone help me. I now plan to take the machine apart and look for a break in the heating element.. Thanks Judy
