Hello,

You may want to start the troubleshooting from testing the heating element. Remove the wires from the heating element terminals and check for continuity between each terminal and the ground.

If there is continuity, replace the heating element.

If there is no continuity, replace the motor.

- The heating element Part number: 8573069

Part number: 8573069



- The motor Part number: W10463866

Part number: W10463866



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Maytag MED6400TB0 Dryer - AppliancePartsPros.com

Gene.

Default Maytag Bravo Dryer followup: replaced the heating element- still not working

Gene IAW your guidance i replaced the heating element but now the control panel still lights up and will change appropriately but now the heating element does not come on at all nor is there any buzz as before. The drum light comes on when the button is pushed and the door switch has tension and depressing it will turn the light off. Before i replace the motor is there anything else that might cause this problem like thermal fuse, high limit switch, thermister? We live in a semi-rural area and get our power from a rural coop. A few weeks ago i had to replace the control panel on the matching washer. I appreciate any guidance. I'm basing my questions on the other posts that i've read. Thank you

Replacing the heating element without testing the old part for continuity does not do any good because we still don't know the real cause of the original problem.

Perform the diagnostic as instructed in the attached tech sheet, starting from "Motor, heater and console ID" on page 2. Do not replace any parts yet and post the results. The simple multimeter Part number: AP5641751

Part number: AP5641751
or any other similar to it will be needed.

Gene.
