Hi, To get to the heating element you will need to remove the 2 screws holding the door hinges and the 2 screws across from them. The door can come off or just hange on the hinges. Now remove the front panel pulling it toward you. After the front panle is off. locate the heating element and check it for coninuity. If the heaters checks ok, check the thermostats and make sure they are ok.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

No heat in the dryer. It is Maytag Neptune gas dryer about 9 years old. The drum rotates just fine but heat stopped a couple of days ago.

Maytag dryer does not heat.


If the dryer comes on but doesn't heat, it is probably the heating element. If the dryer doesn't come on at all, it most likely is the dryer's motor.

Maytag PYE3300AYW Elec Dryer Runs, But No Heat


hello kellygubser,
If you are sure the thermal switch is ok.. have you checked the high temp ( bi metal snap switch) too? Here is a link to the wiring diagram of your dryer. You can see that there are a few other temp switches in circuit of the heating element that would disble it.. Hope this helps
