I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Heating element needs to be replace. It made by several sections to produce heat. some section are bad so heating didn't come on with its full capacity.

MY MAYTAG DRYER PYE2300AYW TAKES 2 CYCLES TO DRY THE CLOTHES


I would imagine your vent duct needs cleaning. We recently had the same problem and a duct cleaning kit from Lowes (about $40) took us from what felt like 'reasonable' airflow outside to "oh-my-gosh, what a difference!!", and left an astonishing pile of nasty, damp lint on the ground out there...
There's a good chance the same treatment would do the same for you. Hope it helps!

How does may tag intelli dry work? what is the difference between less and more heat setting


there is a sensor inside the door to the right it actually "feels" the dampness of the clothes across the two strips on the sensor, if you close a wet washcloth in the door so that it hits the sensor you will see that it will show as wet and it will run longer.
if nothing in the load hits the sensor the sensor will call it dry and the load will finish, larger loads work better with sensor dry small loads not so much. if there is alot of trouble try using the timed dry cycle.
