What would cause the thermal cut-off to open again after replacing it?

My electric Kenmore dryer model 110.63912100 was not heating but still ran. A technician on this sight recommended testing the cut thermal cut-off for continuity and I did and found one that was open. I replaced both from the replacement set and turned the machine on to find that it was heating. I tested it twice for about 30 seconds. Opened the door and there was hot air both times. We loaded it with we clothes and it ran for an hour an the clothes were still cold and wet. The same Cutoff-tml Number: 3977394 is showing open or no continuity. What else should I look for. I don't want to start buying parts I don't need. The heating element is still getting a continuity reading. Please help.
