The heating element is burnt out. Unplug the dryer. Follow the wires from the control panel. They will go to the heating element. The element is probably held in by anywhere from 2 to 6 screws. Remove the screws and you should be able to pull out the element. The element is coiled wire that heats up when power is applied. If you look closely you can probably see a break in it. To get a replacement you will need the model number which will be on a metal plate either on the back of the dryer or inside the dryer door. Take the old part with you so you can do a comparison and make sure you get the right part.

Maytag proforma gas dryer no heat


The model says electric and is listed as gas. If it is electric. Move all the settings (exercise the controls) If that does not work Turn both of the breakers off at your electric panel and back on. If one feels loose you know it may have tripped and you just reset it. Your drier will work fine now. Just turn it on.

Check your fuses or breaker...If you have fuses, replace both 30 amp fuses. If you have breakers, flip breaker to OFF then back to ON, then try your dryer to see if it heats.
