My Maytag MDG6400AWW timer does not advance in the Auto mode. The clothes will dry but it will spin and spin for hours until you open the door. In timer mode everything appears to work normally

sounds like it is not sensing the temperature, which is the thermostat, here is a website that will help you out, #6 dryers basic, Good Luck Tim:

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Maytag Neptune mdg6400aww heats up for 1-2 mintutes then not heat

Make sure there are no major airflow obstructions. If not, replace the coil packs on the gas valve.

How do I replace the gas valve coils on my maytag atlantis gas dryer?

usually the gas valve is not the issue on these dryers after ten years of doing service calls i have only ever changed one. have you replaced the element that lights the gas? they have to see a certain resistance before they will open the gas valve. these will usually develop a hairline crack they will still glow red but not open the valve. when you replace it make sure you do not touch the element as this will shorten its life.

i'm not sure but i think the screws are either a T-15 or T-20 security screw. TRy going to a really good hardware store to purchase the bits. As for your other problem it sounds as if it might be your door switch. After you get the machine open check for continuity.
