Sounds like your heating element may be burned out. On initial start, if the drum rotates, and you have blower air flow but no heat, I would suspect that the heating coil (element) has an "open" in it, i.e., it has literally burned through at one location in the coil, usually at or near one of the support insulators mounted on in the interior rear of the dryer. To replace, access to the interior of the dryer from the front is necessary. Take care installing the replacement coil in that any residual tension on the coiled element at any location along its length will, over time, result in premature, stressed-induced, thermal fatique of the coil. To avoid premature failure, all sections of coil between support insulators should be completely relaxed after installation and prior to initial heating.

My maytag electric clothes dryer does not turn on. I have checked the electric.

the la1053 thermal has gone bad. Located under the top on the left side back wall. Using a putty knife or flat blade there are 2 spring clips, 1 on each side across the front holding the top down. Depress these and you will be able to lift the top back and get to the thermal locted below the heatre. You'll see 2 white wires going down by the heater these go to the thermal. Hope this helps.

Start button trips the electricity

First thing to do is to remove the rear cover, and see if the inside of the cover is damp , and has a build up of fluff. if it has then get a hair dryer and thoroughly dry the element and stats, and remove any fluff that has accumulated in this area.
Try it before you fasten cover back on, if it still will not start, then disconnect the heatr element and stats, to do this, remove top cover and right hand side panel looking at it from the front.
At the left rear corner you will see the wiring going to the heater, unplug the connector and try again ,if it still trips then it could be a motor or control board and or timer prob.
Make sure all filters and vents are clean.
Plz rate my solution.
