Could be a tripped limit due to excessive lint buildup inside or it might be a broken belt due to bad roller or old belt. Lots of videos on youtube on how to get inside a maytag dryer. I recently worked on a slopefront model Neptune that was in a house fire. Did a quick video:
I had the problem recently with my stupid Maytag, and the internet is loaded with complaints about Maytag washers. Unfortunately, it isn't Maytag any more, Whirlpool has purchased Maytag and several good brands and ruined them with 3rd party cheaply made junk components. What used to be metal is plastic now, and cheap plastic at that. I had the repair man out 2 times while still under warranty, and then 2 months after warranty expired again the on/off switch failed. No more Maytag products for me. What I did was unplug the washer for 1/2 hour, then re-plug it in. Then I held in the start button for about 30 seconds and let it go. After it sat about 10 minutes, it suddenly released the catch. I can't guarantee this will work for you, but worth a shot.

If your door is reversible then you just have to remove the hinges from the side that they are on. Once your door is off, you will notice that the opposite side of the door has the place where the hinges will be replaced. You simply add the hinges and transfer the latch and strike to the other side.
We hope this answers your question and we wish you the best of luck. Ella

As far as I know there isn't any "kit" needed to switch a door. It's just a matter of taking out a bunch of screws, reversing some door parts, and putting it all back together. Here's a link that shows how to do it for one model which is typical:
About all you need is a phillips-head driver and maybe a small putty knife to pry out the filler plugs from the holes you'll be using.
