Dryer runs but never heats
Googled Maytag dryer troubleshooting and arrived at partselect.com. Using their site, I was able to learn more about how my dryer operated, was configured and how to remove the front panel. I then removed front panel. Tested fuses and thermostats. All were good. Visually inspected heater element. No apparent break in heater coils. I ultimately removed the heater assembly to get a better view of the heater element and then noticed the break in the heater element. Once I saw that it was obvious where my problem was. I then ordered the part, installed it and tested it and it appeared to work fine. My wife tells me it works great and she is impressed. FYI - I don't know much about dryers except that it drys my clothes. Thank you partselect.com!

No heat in the dryer
This is super easy:
Just take out two screws on the front panel and drop the front panel off the dryer.
Then pull the wires off the heater assembly and remove (1 screw).
Move the heat fuse and heat sensor to the new heater.
Put the new heater in, plug in wires, pop front back on and, wow, that was easy!
Less than 30 min and I am a business sales guy, not an appliance repairman.
