Maytag automatic electric dryer works but no heat comes out…

Customer Question
Maytag automatic electric dryer...

Maytag automatic electric dryer works but no heat comes out - we checked the vent hose and nothing is collected in there

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 10 years old at least model DE410

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Dryer has worked like a dream - the other day I had to clean out vent on the outside and then it was fine. I noticed steam coming out on outside while it was working and then it just was blowing cool air. Is it best just to get a new dryer?

For this model, which is actually over 20 years old. Given that you have no heat on any cycles, you will need to replace the heating element. They only have so many hours of operation and eventually give out. The part number is *****

Here is a link to the part on Amazon: http://a.co/4PURTZ0

Here is a link to a video that will help you replace it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYucHx9zQTU
