This sounds like an overheating problem.
There is usually a limit device near the elements.
There is also a limit located in the exhaust. If the exhaust air becomes restricted, it takes the heater out of the circuit so it does not burn out or worse.
I would look at this as a possible answer.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

Dryer takes 90 minutes to dry ONE load. What do I need to check?


clean lint out of vent first. then check heat stats and make sure vent is not blocked or kinked. if dryer cannot vent hi-temp. heat stat. will cut power to element, when it cools off element re energizes heats up and heat stat cuts power again. this causes a long time to dry. could be other things, but this is most likely

Maytag Neptune Dryer runs for about 10 minutes and then stops. If we hit the start button it will run for another 10 minutes. It heats up fine while it is running. When this started we smelled something...


Check for lint buildup on the "Hi Limit Themostat" located above the heating element. There is a thermostat kit that you can get and replace all three at once. This will make sure your dryer runs safe and up to its required operational limits. The lint buildup may cause the thermostats to get out of the tolerance. Here is a link to the thermostat kit.

MAYTAG PYE2300AYW ELECTRIC DRYER - HEATER SHUTS OFF PREMATURELY


First off, how are you looking to check this situation. Either way, it would be normal for this to happen. When you are looking at the elements heating, you more than likely have the door open to see them. The heater will do what they call "short cycling" because the airflow has outside source air getting into the heat stream. The door and lid almost always has to be shut for this system to work correctly. You can sometimes crack the top just enough to see the element heat. Usually, if the element is coming on at all, then the system should be fine. If you have a dryer thats not drying your clothes completely, its more than likely you have a ventilation issue (i.e vent tube restriction, grass growing in the end of the vent, etc). Also remember these Maytags have two thermostats on them most of the time. One directly over the top of the element, and one in the fan housing at the front of the unit. Try those, if there isnt a change, write me back and will look from there. Good Luck!!!!
