    Default Maytag Legacy Electric Dryer --> Popped! Now, No Heat?

    Have a two year old Maytag Legacy series electric dryer I purchased from Home Depot. Was running the dryer last night, and heard a large pop sound. Today, I discovered that the dryer no longer heats, but otherwise appears to run normally. I can also smell a distinct electrical burn smell when the dryer is running.

    Is this likely due to a bad electric heating element? How to you get access to this heating element? Any other possibilities? Thanks.
