Question about Maytag Dryer. Bravos XL 7.3 cu. ft. Electric Steam Dryer in Granite
My Maytag Bravos XL dryer will start but not heat at times. I was going to take the unit apart to inspect the heating element and the rest of the unit. I had unplugged the unit and removed the dryer vent. After removing the vent I plugged the dryer back in and turned it on. It had started heating again. I put the vent back on (after checking for clogs) and connected the water line back to the unit. again when I started the unit it was not HEATING! I then unplugged the unit again and it works (for now) This is the second time this has happened.
Im assuming you have a steam dry option? If this is the case there are fuses attached to this system to avoid injury and bad this from happening. These fuses blow a lot. If you have a ohms meter, check the fuses on the steam dry unit for ohms. I bet one of them is blown and that is the reason your not getting heat during this cycle.

From the front all is accessable and plenty of room to repair. Make sure you clean out the dryer before putting it back together and check the slide plates and rear rollers.

Since you did not provide a model number I picked a similar model for reference using this model number: MDE5721TQO (there are at least 40 different model numbers but the blowers are all the same) You blower is driven directly by the motor so unless the blower itself has come apart or the drive spline in the blower has failed in some way you more than likely have a major build up of lint in your dryer.
You can look here to see the blower location http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5133558&diagram_id=1301439#d1301439
You can turn the motor by hand and see if the blower is turning by losening the housing screws for the blower while using a flashlight. If the blower is turning then you need to find out where the blockage of lint has built up and remove it. I would startt around the lint filter. NOTE The drum will also turn.if you rotate the motor pulley. Just make sure the unit is unplugged while you attempt this. If you do locate the blockage I have found that a well bent into a U shaped METAL coat hanger works well. Do NOT poke any sharp objects into the air ducting areas of your dryer while trying to find any blockages and avoid the heating element area with anything metal or sharp. A vacuum crevice tool works great during this task. Good luck and I do hope you are able to locate the problem based on the information here.

the steam on the front was 2 spring clips,one on each side in the front, use a putty knife to pop it up,then looks on the back wall and you will see the thermal fuse and the heater coil-mike
