Question about Maytag MDE308DAYW Electric Dryer
Hi, the cycling thermostat has failed in your unit. This will cause the normal drying cycles to be affected, in return, producing a under drying affect. Your unit is equipped with two Thermostats(High limit Thermostat,cycle Thermostat). There is also a thermal fuse as well. The High limit thermostat and thermal fuse work together to insure that the element is regulated. If the element is experiencing any difficulties in shutting down, or overheating, the thermostat(limit) will kill the thermal fuse, and this will sever the connection, in return, causing the unit to shut down completely. In your case, the Cycling thermostat is the culprit, and should be replaced asap. The actual affected Thermostat is located inside the unit, mounted on the blower housing cover.

Since the heating element is working as the fabrics gets hot but it's not drying cloths in right time, then it has something to do with the vents. The hot air is not circulating properly. You need to double-check the vent but if same problem occurs, then contact the manufacturer to see if the heating element is working properly.
If the dryer is under the warranty, then take advantage of it so that you could have it repaired for free.
Have a great day!
