Which dryer thermostat is bad?

I have a whirlpool cloths dryer (Model LER3624JQ0 ) and takes 3 cycles to dry the cloths. I have checked the vent and it is free and clear. On my parts drawing it shows to have 3 thermostats. One is a thermal cut-off (high limit thermostat), one is thermostat 250 degrees, and the other shows thermostat 150 degrees. Is there a way to check these to see if they are working?
The heating element comes on and stays on for about 2 minutes then turns off for about 5 minutes before coming back on and doing the same thing again.
Any suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks

You may also want to check the internal ductwork before proceeding as it may be clogged.
