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.
Thanks/Mike

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?

SOURCE: Maytag Dryer will not start again

Agreed --- the motor is overheating.But the question is --why? If the motor is old 8-10 years, then that is expected.

SOURCE: maytag gas dryer MDG6400AWW heats up for 2 minutes

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

Maytag dryer se1000 runs for 15 minutes then shuts off


Clean your sensors if you have them. They might have junk on them that could be forming a moisture barrier preventing the sensors from feeling the wetness of them clothes. The dryer may think them clothes is dry because it cannot sense wetness.
