Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

Do you have the complete model number off the unit?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I do not have the serial number-it is a Maytag Epic
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Ok well either the belt is broken or you likely have a bad thermal fuse on the unit. You need to remove the lower front panel and check the thermal fuse for continuity on the blower housing, you are looking for this part CLICK HERE. If you do not have a meter unplug the unit and interlock the wires together to that sensor and tape them up and then try it, if it starts then replace it. If not let me know

How do you take the bottom front of dryer off?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

If you have a separated larger bottom panel there should be 3 screws along the bottom edge to remove then slip the panel down and pull it off.
