Question about Maytag Dryers
Runs for 2 minutes then shuts off
You will need to open the cabinet and check to see if there is a blockage in the blower assembly or if the motor is covered with lint. The motor is overheating. If all is clear then you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor to order.

Please provide the model number and I will see if I can figure something out.
It sounds like you have covered the common problems. Usually a motor is the cause for this problem, it gets hot and shuts down until it cools off. I have had some problems with the auto dry controls on the Maytags also.
Are you equiped to do some voltage checks if we need too? This would help in knowing where you have power when it quits.

My dryer is making a loud sound while drying the clothes. The heater still works, but is just very loud while drying. What is the problem with my dryer?

turn gas off to dryer. For safety it is best not to wait get your gas company to find leak(i don't think they charge for that)if it is at the control valve you should take the screws that hold the coils down out.Remove coils and rubber O rings and replace all with new ones it comes as a kit
