Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
It could be many things. Check the lint filter first. You might try checking under the drum where the blower assembly is at for excessive lint build up, check for air gaps in the drum chamber where air can get through. Check the fins of the blower wheel. This blower pulls the air through the drum from the element.The heating element my be burned out or the thermocouple (Temp Sensor) or the circuitry has malfunctioned, the microprocessor firmware has a "bug", Is the dryer on "Fluff" or no heat setting? Make sure it is set on Auto Dry or Permanent Press. Still no heat? If you are handy at disassembly/reassembly then you could check the resistance of the heating element disconnected from the leads. It should read between 10 and 15 ohms. The pre-heat thermistor may be open as well. Unless you are experienced in testing live systems I would take it to your friend who does this stuff for fun or a living. Please check the lint factor, the settings, and then the elemnt. Post again with your findings and we will work from there. Good luck to you!

The problem is most likely a blown thermal fuse or a bad heating element. The thermal fuse should be attached to the duct just inside the back panel. It is about an inch long. The thermal fuse and the heating element should have continuity, therefore they are simple to test with an ohm meter or multimeter. If either component does not have continuity, then that component will need to be replaced. Hope this helped, and good luck.
