My maytage dryer mde308dayw drys the clothes, but it takes a longtime. The dryer heats, but water builds up around the inside of the door of the dryer.

You will need to clean the vent system on your dryer. Lint buildup restricts the airflow and will keep the clothes from drying.

How do you expose the heat element

Take of back of unit, unplug first. Heat element is near heat duct side with wires attached to it. Unscrew and slide it out. You could also put a tester to each wire to see if you have a complete connection. If ok check thermal switches, one could have gone bad.
