Hi, Could you get me a model # so I can see exactly what machine you have please?
Does the rattling noise sound like a fast chatter with metal or is it a dull plastic sound?

Not heating

This may require several trouble-shooting steps. First, it sounds as if the gas is turned on and ignited. It also, sounds as if the motor/blower is not rotating. Check the motor continuity, the electrical supply to the motor, and whether the motor (with electricity turned off) rotates by hand freely.

Maytag gas dryer makes loud rattling noise. Not a squeaking noise, but something between a rattle and a fast, rhythmic knocking. Tumbler works, heat works, but insane noise.

sounds like the drum isnt balanced. either make sure appliance is properly balanced on the floor or make sure you are not overfilling the tub.

My Amana PLE8407W2 doesn't heat.

If the fuse rattles, that doesn't sound good, but the easiest way to check is with an ohm meter, or multimeter which you can get at walmart for like $10, and you should own one anyway.

Amana Dryer takes a long time to dry and is making a rattling sound

Could be a problem with the thermostats..or the heating element.
The rattling sound could be the dryer rollers needing lubricant on the shaft and bearing.
