SOURCE: Can the Maytag Neptune Gas dryer converted to electric?

A gas dryer is dedicated to the use of gas to supply its heating function. It works on 125 volts. No way can a gas dryer become an electric one. UNLESS!
you just want to hang out yer clothes under the sun and use the dryer as a way to fluuf up yer clothes OR you could place the dryer into a box and make a condenser dryer out of it. Like cool hand luke you will toss that dryer into a rigid metal box in direct sunlight so that it can be an unbearable 140 degree up in there. then grab yer clothes and toss em in there and close that tar paer lined tin box up my friend.Let the sun do its thang. I think i just invent the redneck dryer! we don't need no stinking gas. Green power to the people! LOL

Maytag neptune front load dryer

Your exhaust vent is probably plugged. Remove venting from the dryer and check for lint build-up, and also check the vent flap on the outside of your house for clogs. If venting appears to be clear, you might have a bad blower (although you should notice an abnormal noise with that).
