Question about Miele Dryers
One possibility could be that you have a clogged LINT DUCT VENT to the outside.
It sounds like the damp sensor is working fine as when your unit senses no moisture, it shuts off. Soooooo, if the LINT DUCT VENT is partially clogged somewhere between the dryer tub and the outside of the house, then the sensor is sensing too much heat because the air flow is limited terribly somewhere. Take your entire LINT DUCT TUBING and clean it completely. Also, make sure you do not have any loops or droops in the whole ducting route. Make sure the lint duct tubing is not having to blow uphill anywhere in its route to the outside of the house. Dryers can not blow damp lint up hill very well and when folks try to make a dryer do this, the dryer will try, but damp lint will collect in a low spot, or in a hose route that has too many turns in it to the outside. Make the route of the hose LEVEL and even downward if possible. If it is a good idea to vent the hose out the side of the dryer, (to reduce turns, - remember they are death in a dryer) if possilbe. Not all dryers allow this. Look in your users manual for any suggestions.

Check your venting. Insure it is not clogged as this can cause the unit to stick at 6min mark. Just before the cool down period.

SOURCE: Dryer gets hot when not running
Getting hot when not started is a great concern.
I have a few ideas why, but this is a fire hazard and I would suggest unplugging and either getting help or replacing.
That said, there here are a few suggestions.
1) if the element is shorted to ground, it will get power to one side of the element and heat though ground. This, again, is serious.
2) if it heats forever and doesn't get warm enough to dry, this is another indication of an element that is not working up to power. Not getting 230 across the entire element and not getting hot enough to dry.
3) Many times when a dryer runs too long, the air flow if blocked by the vent being plugged or some plug withing the dryer itself.
Again, I am very concerned about this problem and suggest you not use it until it is repaired. If you want to check the element, it is fairly easy, but unit will need disassembled.

I would suspect the timer is on it's way out the door. Do you have any areas the timer has dead spots? Check the exhaust for any plugging also.Is this only on a first time start up or is it after this dryer has been running? If after running it could be a high temp sensor, that by the time you are playing around with it, the temp has changed.

Maytag gas dryer MDG7600aww, (Model number corrected). Below is a link, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com showing the parts breakdown and disassembly procedures.
This link shows the most likely cause of your issue.
This link shows the next likely cause of your issue. Remove the front panel and inspect the sensor bar which is located at the 4 o'clock level on the drum bulkhead, ( see the first link for location). Ascertain that 2 wires are connected to it and that black sensor bar is not cracked or broken.
This link will offer more assistance if the above 2 items check good.
