Question about Maytag MDG21PD Electric Commercial Dryer
SOURCE: dryer won't cycle
Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork

the maytag timer for MDE10 should be a multi vertical slide in type. If so under the keyed panel on the top of the dryer, is an electric control with a grey knurled knob facing the front of the machine.
This grey knurled knob is the time set.
The knob rotates clockwise (from front) under motor control while the dryer is running, and jumps back to starting position under spring control when the slide is pushed in.
There is a single grey stud moulded into the front of the knob, that is the sixty minute mark, and a number of slots before the stud, that take a nylon peg. they are 6 minutes apart 54 48 42 36 30 minutes. Inserting a nylon peg in the slot at 30 minute will do what you want.
Most service guys drop the peg in the bottom of the control when they remove it, makes it easier to find, next time, so if there is not a peg in any slot, examine the floor if the enclosure, A short nut n bolt will accomplish the same result if the peg is not there.
If the original multicoin push in has been replaced with a newer single slot device I dont know how the change is made, none of my dryers are that new.

Hopefully, the moisture in the air didn't affect the timer. You may want to put some WD 40 on it. I would check all the wiring first. I assume you reset the breakers, checked the receptacle, especially if it is near the floor. Look under the top and near the drum and check the thermal overload.

The maximum run time on this machine's timer is 54 min. There is an adjustable peg on the white plastic index wheel which you can adjust anywhere from 30 to 54 min. For example peg in position E is 30min, D is 36min, C is 42min, B is 48min or for 54 min you have to remove the adjustable peg completely, but don't lose it in case you want to change the time in the future. If it is already in the Max "A" position and shuting off early you might have to change your torsion return spring. Hope this helps
