My Maytag dryer model HYE3658ayw won't heat. Probably 7

Customer Question
My Maytag dryer model...

My Maytag dryer model HYE3658ayw won't heat.

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

Probably 7 years old.

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

Yes. I removed the control panel and all the wiring was good. The exhaust vents are clean as well.

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

No, but I don't know where the fuse is on the dryer or how to open the top.

Ok on your unit there are two tabs in between the top and the front about 2" in from the sides. Using a putty knife press those in and pop the top up. Once the top is up the heater and high limit thermostats are in the back left area. If the unit runs but does not heat on that unit the heater is likely burned out. If it does not run at all the small high limit on the right side of the heater housing is burned out. Check that out and see what you find. If you need more help let me know.
