Has it worked OK up till now, or is this a new location ?

check it with an empty load ..

If the Heating Element is turning OFF, something is doing that..

You'd have to (electrically) monitor the Thermostats while it's operating.

If the Heating Element isn't being turned OFF,
then there may be a problem with the Element (open/partial short to chassis)

Also that dryer has a double element, most likely one element is broken
