This answer was rated:

I have an old Maytag Dryer Model number DE50. The tumbler works as does the heating element but the clothes don't dry. Also, the machine doesn't stop when the door is open. I know it is an old machine but I would like to keep it if it can be repaired.

I live in an apartment and the machine is not vented outside. As far as I can tell air does not blow strongly out the vent.

okay these machines I cant even get diagrams for anymore but if my memory serves me right the blower belt may be broken or stretched. Blower Belt Y312512         Main Product View this is in the back ,you need to remove the panel on the back to get to it. check that first thing.
