Question about Maytag Dryers
No. Among many issues is that the control board is different. But why not fix the unit so it dries as is normal in under an hour. Half of your 240 volts is out? Your heating element is bad. Your fan is loose.

SOURCE: SLOW DRYING WITH MAYTAG DRYER
Have you checked to see if there is an obstruction in the gas valve itself or if the solenoid is worn? If there is, it will not allow as much gas through, therefor making a smaller flame and less heat. If not, check for pinched gas flex lines either before or after the gas valve or leaks in the combustion chamber. Also take out the lint trap, seal it up with cardboard cutout with a hole in it, take an air compressor with a blowout valve on it set at about 200psi, cover your face and blow out the trash out of the internal ventilation system on the dryer. Should work better after all this. Hope this helps.

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.
To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. Your dryer is equiped with a safety thermistat and if you are not getting the proper exhaust flow the burner will cut off and restart in the manner that your's is doing. I Hope I have helped you, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help.
