no heat in electronic dryer

we have a maytag "Dependable Care Plus" electronic dryer. i switched it to 'air fluff' for the last load - i do that only very infrequently - and when they switched back to 'regular,' there was no heat.

any suggestions what to look for?

thanks.

Hello bwv11 and Welcome into the Gas Appliances topic.

There could be any number of possibilities. Far to many to list here. However, there is answers to possible causes listed in the dryer sticky note.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, down loadable repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the most likely possible problem may be. They will need the make, model and serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts and problem resolving matters. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs or services. Always check for gas leaks whenever moving the appliance and/or a service or repair includes any connection of a gas part.

Read the existing questions on the subject of dryers. Doing so will more quickly provide you with answers to questions & provide additional information on how to resolve dryer problems.
