Have this Maytag dryer MED6400TB0 that is not heating.It will come on,the drum turns,but will not heat.I have removed the back and checked the element,the fuses,and all of the limit thermostats,everything checks ok.The only thing that is not checking out is the thermister next to the thermal fuse on the blower.Would this keep it from heating?Also what else should I be checking to see why it won't heat?Your help would be appricated.Thank you.
