Maytag Dryer LDE410: My dryer cycled properly but wouldn't heat. How to replace Heater Assembly Complete.

Appliance: Maytag Dryer-Ele LDE410 My Repair & Advice

The Maytag washers and dryers with removable front panels having 2 screws at the bottom and clips at the top make it easy to access internal components. The heater had 2 push on individual wire connectors. In addition, there were 2 sensors that had similar connections. The heater assembly was held in by a screw at the back and another at the front. The sensors had to be removed from the old heater assembly and transferred to the new one. The more difficult part of the repair consisted of pushing the heater assembly tube into the duct at the rear of the dryer. It was a tight fit and required some coaxing to get it to fit. The remainder of the assembly just required screwing in the heater assembly in front and back, attaching the 6 wire connectors and re-installing the front panel.
