I have a maytag MDG40000Bww that doesn't heat

Start with the electric wire on the back of the machine. You have either a 3 prong or a 4 pronged electric plug.
Find a testing instrument and determine if two of the wires have 110 volts coming to them.
On a 3 pronged one ( the "L" shaped one) is the ground.
One a 4 pronged one, the round one and the "L" shaped ones are both ground.
The other two should each show 110v.

If all this tests well, we'll need to go inside the machine.
Your dryer has from 3 to about 10 things to check with an electrical tester.
You will be taking the wire connections off the heating element and all the thermostats one at a time and checking them to see which one shows " a problem", meaning electricity will not pass "through" them.
Also look for wire connectors that have burned in two.
If you need help here, please find someone who can show you how this is done.
Be blessed.

Smelled electrical burning last night and unplugged my GE profile dryer and one of the prongs(3 prong type) was burned

This usually indicates a loose connection. Check the wire connection inside the outlet and the connections on the back of the dryer. Make sure the nuts are not cross threaded, this commonly happens with the fine thread. When a loose connection happens the electricity will generate heat trying to make the connection, the cause of many home fires every year.

Electrical connection

yes the only difference is the four prong has a ground wire,you'll see the connector for the ground and if not ground it to the machine but there's a spot for it

Trying to hook a 3 prong hook up with 4 prong cord how do i do it?

A 3 prong plug is for 240 volt (hot-hot-ground) the 4 prong plug is for 120/240 volt (hot-hot-neutral-ground). If your device requires a 4 prong plug, it is not a good idea to connect it to a 3 prong circuit (you will create a possible lethal electrical condition). If your device requires a 3 prong connection, a 4 prong cord can be used by not connecting the neutral (white wire). If you have any questions, let me know.

Burnt smell on dryer

Hello fyffeta,
3 or 4 prong power should have no bearing on the dryer performance..3 prong provides 2 power feed lines and a neutral versus a 4 prong system that provides the same two power feeds, a neutral and a ground.. so performance wise.. you should not expect any. The fact that it sounds louder is subjective and may be a function of the move. whereby something inside the dryer shifted a little when transporting it.. or the accoustics of the new room. If you smell something burning then I would check the exaust duct system for any material and/or restrictions.. It is possible that by moving your dryer..some lint, fibers from clothes or even human hair may have been dislodged and found there way into the blower/heater region and are burning off.. With the plug disconnected..Make sure your power cable terminations at the dryer are all snug. a loose connection there is dangerous and is resistive ( which means it will get hot) and in some cases.. could cause a fire so check that carefully..
In all may just have some lint or something that shifted during the move and is burning away...
Good Luck

If it won't work without a ground wire, but still works with one, then you must have a ground/earth connection to make it work - it sounds like there is a safety device that needs an earth to release, you could almost certainly bypass this relatively easily, but it will be there for a good reason and that would be dangerous. Bearing this in mind, regardless of which 2/3 prong adaptors you use, without an earth connection it will not function without risk probably of electric shock from the case or damage to the vacuum, else the safety device would not be there. Get an electrician to your home, and make him install grounded sockets where necessary (should be all, but at least get a couple). Ungrounded/unearthed domestic power sockets at all domestic AC voltages are lethal eventually, to man or machines. A lot of devices don't need an earth, but especially something with a big motor or a metal case usually does. At least ask a local electrician what he thinks. If you want to do it yourself, an Earth circuit in your home is not too hard to achieve if you have basic wiring skills (and access to the ground floor), but most insurance would dislike the idea - if you want to - post again and I may talk you through it. Hope this helps :) Please be careful :(
