Question about Maytag MDG6000 Dryer
This has been working wonderfully...and still runs...just NO HEAT.
I have taken the front panel off...but...I got no idea what I'm looking at....except "parts"...lol
I have removed the vent...still no heat...there was no apparant build up of lint, etc...
the flame going out is normal. the heat cycles on and off as called for by the thermostat. If the heat doesn't come back on i would start by changing the gas coils.

Not too familliar with the gas temp either, but you should definitely take your lint filter out and clean it with soap and water. If you use dryer sheets, they can leave a clear film on your filter and it can be just as bad as a filter full of lint. Try this out, if it works, clean your filter periodically with soap and water to remove the chemical buildup.

The first thing I would check would be your high limit thermostat. It is located near the heater and is wired in series with the heater. The contacts in a high limit thermostat remain closed at temperatures below 250 degrees.
The contacts will open and interrupt the circuit to
the heater when the operating thermostat, thermistor or electronic
control fails to cycle properly. The most common condition that causes
the high limit thermostat to operate are vent restrictions, blower
failure or a defective operating thermostat or thermistor.
If those are good, then,
Check your dryer heater. With both heater power terminals disconnected you can check for resistance. The typical dryer heater resistance is around 20 Ohms.
If you can not read resistance on the dryer heater then it is an open circuit and needs replaced. Also if your meter indicated an electrical path between either of the heater terminals to the heater frame (ground) then it’s bad. The heater must be isolated from its mounting frame.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check out this electric no heat tip...
