Dryer only heats on Delicate

My Performa Maytag dryer has stopped heating when on the Regular temperature setting. The dryer has 3 temp settings; Delicate, Fluff, and Regular. After running a load through and they were still wet I checked all three settings. On delicate I can see the heating coil turn orange through the grid in the back of the drum. On Regular I am not getting any heat.
EDIT: I opened up the top and ran the dryer on delicate. The whole heating coil turns red and seems to be working fine. If I switch to Regular it starts to heat and within 5 seconds I hear a little click and the heat turns off to the coil, but the dryer continues to run.
