First thin I would try is to check your thermal fuse for continuity with a ohm meter with the wires removed from the fuse and the dryer unplugged. Its located on the tunnel that in cases the heating element.
Here is the part in case you find it bad.

    Fact is, it is cheaper to get another dryer from craigslist than to buy the timer

Extremely screeching noise when running?


Screeching is the metal-on-metal contact of the drum touching the rear of the unit while
turning - there's a (usually) felt cover gasket over the circular depression at the back of the dryer.
When this wears through (after a number of years/loads), you get the screeching of
metal-to-metal contact.
Problem: friction can heat up the metal so much that the remaining felt gasket material (and/or
accumulated lint or clothing) catches fire.
Fix: replace felt drum gasket.
The Maytag Atlantis MDE6400AY electric dryer has a DuraCushion(tm) dryer drum, so I'm
suspecting the "DuraCushion" has worn out at least at one point in its 360-degree arc.

timeout...I'm guessing you mean that the timer on off doesn't turn anything off. If this is a mechanical timer unit, the contacts are welded. If electronic, your relay is probably welded. Replace the item. If you do go inside, unplug the unit, and then find the relay or contact set and see if they are actually welded. Most units have a diagram on the back. Follow it through with a multitester.

Fly, sounds like you blew the thermal fuse. This is located on the front blower. You will need to remove door by removing the two screws and lifting up on the hinge. Remove the 2 spacers on the other side of the door. Now the panel will pull out and the blower will be exposed. The fuse will look like the one on the right of the attached picture....Catriver..post back.
