After 15 years of service I imagine it will be hard to get the parts you want to repair it.. Newer machines may not dry as quickly as the older types but they use less power to do so.. Consider a new machine for the sake of the economics of the problem
not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.
This could be the motor turning but the belt being broken. If you are mechanical inclined, you can investigate the inside of the machine, and see if the belt is broken. Replacement is not too difficult.
Any questions and I'll be more than happy to give more instruction
I really have NO idea what's causing your Maytags to misbehave, BUT I can tell you that the Maytag service centers have always been very accommodating when I've called about problems with dishwashers, dryers, and washing machines.They have explained the construction of the appliance and even told me the type of tools I needed to make repairs! If you still have your owner's manual, the toll free number should be in there. I hope this helps!
You have a bad motor. There should be a button you can press to make your dryer go while the door is open. Hold that and push the button in and then turn the drum. if that doesn't make it go then it is your motor
