I bought my Maytag dryer in 2001 and it has quit. My same setting I used all the time quit first and then by accident I found another setting would do but then it quit also. The dryer spins but there is no heat. It now will not heat and when it spins it dings like it is done drying but it has only been running for a few minutes. Needless to say I am now going to the laundrymat to dry my clothes. Would love to fix it but I am thankful that it is my dryer and not my washer. Could the heating element be out ?? and if so is this expensive to get and if not can I fix it myself with instructions? It says Maytag/ Oversize Capacity Plus/ Quiet Plus/ Heavy Duty Intellidry Control and I bought it in 2001? I have not come across the book that came with it and just happen to wonder if this part may still be under warranty???? Thank You in advance

** It says Maytag/ Oversize Capacity Plus/ Quiet Plus/ Heavy Duty Intellidry Control **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is it's exact model number which should be on the dryer's identification tag behind the door.

** The dryer spins but there is no heat. Could the heating element be out ?? **

That is one possibility. You can read about others at the following link.

- Can anybody tell me the most likely scenarios for lack of heat in an electric dryer?

Model number MDE6000AYW and serial number 28002745WZ thank you and I went to the link and it is OVER my head-I might try to get a used one to replace this Maytag. Or take it to the place I bought it to repair it which I don't really want to do....I hate to admit it I don't trust them entirely...
