Question about Maytag Dryers
If it lights then most likely you have a block somewhere with lint,pull out the lint filter and then remove the duct that the filter slides into and clean it out,with a shop vac set it up to blow and blow off the burner tube,the motor and the whole cabinet,put it back together,now go to the back,remove the vent line and start it,if it runs fine until you reinstall the vent line then you have a block in the line,i use a leaf blower,i remove the vent line,go outside,make sure the outside duct is clear,nothing blocking it like a cage or screen,go back inside,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,this usually clears it.lint buildup is the most common problem with dryers.let me know what you find.if you already changed the gas coils and ignitor and the flame does light most likely bad air movement.

SOURCE: no heat
You may have a weak igniter. Just because the igniter glows, does not mean it is working properly. The glow bar type igniters are supposed to draw a certain amount of current in order for the gas valve to open. If the current potential is never met, the gas valve will not open. This is a safety feature used to prevent gas flow without ignition. The current readings for the igniters are as follows: Round style glow bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square style glow bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If it is reading less than the required amperage, replace it. This may just solve your problem. Let me know if this helps you.

Have you checked the lint trap and also the vent hose? If you have yet to do that try it. Also make sure that the vent line is not crushed. It needs to be wide open

try to get the manual for the dryer you got and locate the moisture sensor if this sensor is bad what happen is that the automatic timer thinks that the clothes still wet and continues to dry once the sensor detects no moisture then it shut off the dryer normally is located behind the dryer on the exit line of the air duct and tested for conductivity and see if is good or not

UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.
