Heat shuts off during drying cycle but drum continues to turn

Heat shuts off during drying cycle but drum continues to turn

Electric dryer motor runs and turns clothes and has heat when you first start the machine but heat STOPS after a few minutes. When you restart the dryer, the heat comes back on but again stops after a few minutes. I have checked and confirmed the continuity is OK on the (1)heating coil, (2)thermal cutoff,(3)high limit thermostat, and (4)Thermal Fuse. I also opened up the blower and air duct to make sure than nothing was blocking the airflow. Could one of these above items show OK on the continuity test, but still be shutting off the heating coil during the drying cycle? Is there something else to test that I have missed?
