Dryer not drying well. I cleaned all lint out of machine and replaced exhaust duct.The element gets red hot but doesnt stay on the whole time. I think that I should probably replace the thermostats . there seems to be 4 different theromstat or cut off type devices.
See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.

Not sure what you mean. It is normal for te element to turn on/off during the cycle. It is either full on or full off.

Try diagnostics to see if anything comes up.

The unit uses a thermistor to sense the temperature so I would check it with a meter.

Could be you are running off the high limit and may also have a grounded element.

I would do the following first just to be 100% sure you do not still have a venting problem.
Undo the dryer from the exhaust
Run a load
If the load dries correctly then you have a vent problem.
Clean/check the vent system. Make sure the outside louvers open fully.

If you do not want lint in the house.
Take a pair of pantyhose, put one leg into the other and attach this to the dryer exhaust.
Leave enough room behind the dryer so it can blow out like a windsock.
Run a load.

Both the above will allow you to check the air flow and temp.
