Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
The dry will not heat and everything else function so the problem is either in the ingniter or the thermal fuse is out. How do you open the dryer to get to these spots??
On that dryer, take out the door screws and the other screws on the other side. Push down on it and the 2 goalpost sides on the top should come out. I would imagine it's the ignightor. Usually a thermal fuse will stop the thing from spinning also. At least once you get it apart you could see if it glows and turns the gas on. Good luck

Tips for a great answer:
Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:
If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.
It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

You need to change the t-stat, thermal fuse and high limit all at the same time...
