I have a maytag dryer that only heats up partially. I found the exhaust hose and lint vents completly full. They are clean and the thermal fuse tests ok. The dryer heats up a bit but doesn't get completely hot. Any suggestions next.

A model number m,ay help others help you.

Could be a grounded element.
Check the heating coil.
Unplug the unit and both wires to the coil.
Check it with a meter, should be around 12 ohms.
Then check from each side of the coil to the case/frame, both should be infinite ohms (open). If not the coil may have sagged or broken and is touching the case.

Your unit looks like a gas dryer so please ignore my post.
