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.

Try first unplugging power cord from the appliance, this will drain power from circuits and reset it.
Check the door latch sensor, if that is stuck the door sensor will not let the machine start.
Keep pressed start button for 10 seconds or so, on some dryer this reset the machine.
If it still does not work then there is an internal fault , probably the timer assembly must be replaced.
If you need to call a technician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.
If you want to do it yourself, test the timer control, then if it is faulty replace it.
You find replacement here.

Call a local appliance shop and ask about it. Maytag is pretty common and available. The timer will be about 75 dollars. It could be more depending on what all you have on it. It is pretty easy to replace once you get to it. Let me know how this turns out.

Yes it deffinetley sounds like you may have a timer issue, if your timer stops and the dryer is running, or if the timer keeps going around and around this will be the problem, however there are thermostats inside the dryer and if you have it set on a HEAT and not a TIMED setting the thermostats won't advance the timer because they havent been set.Hope this helps
