Question about Maytag Neptune MDE6700A Electric Dryer
It sounds like the problem is a blown safety thermostat located on the blower housing or the belt cut-off switch is not functional. Verify any of these conditions by passing the safety thermostat then the belt cut-off switch if necessary.
Disconnect power and locate the safety thermostat (thermostat 1) on the blower housing. Disconnect the wires. and connect them together then insulate it properly. Reconnect power and start the dryer. The safety thermostat is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the thermistor if the dryer starts.
Bypass the belt cut-off switch keeping the safety thermostat bypassed if the dryer still doesn't start. Replace the belt cut-off switch if the dryer starts. Start the dryer with only the belt cut-off switch bypassed. Also replace the safety thermostat and the thermistor if the dryer stops working.
Just in case the dryer doesn't heat up, bypass both the high-limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off on the heater housing. Replace both the high-limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off if the dryer heats up. Do not use the dryer with any safety component bypassed due to fire hazards. Bypassing them is for troubleshooting purposes only.

Well you really don't have much option now do you. The Main circuit board, is most likely the culprit.
Also to assist you i include a link above where you can download a service manual. This has all the info you need to troubleshoot and repair your Dryer.
That "Clicking"noise you hear is indeed the sound of an overloaded and faulty power supply,on a main board.
However you DO need to check ALL external sensors, to ensure that they aren't the culprit.
