I pulled out all the resisters, fuses, timers, and door switches and found that the problem mine was having was the thermal fuse had blown. While tearing apart the whole dryer I found a dryer sheet had somehow worked its way past the lint trap clogging up the exhaust tube which is what caused the fuse to blow, I'm thinking. I found this fuse on amazon for like 3 bucks, better than buying a $500 new dryer. Here is what you'll need:

My maytag pyet344ayw dryer will turn on but no heat comes out


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
