It works fine except it won't shut off by the timer. I have already replaced the control device on top of the machine.

Had the same problem. Replaced the timer and it shorted out the dryness sensor. After 6 visits from the repair man, Maytag said they had put the wrong timers in the boxes. At one time I had 14 timers at my house and they were all wrong. Maytag sent another repair man and he couldn't fix it either.

Timeout...I'm guessing you mean that the timer on off doesn't turn anything off. If this is a mechanical timer unit, the contacts are welded. If electronic, your relay is probably welded. Replace the item. If you do go inside, unplug the unit, and then find the relay or contact set and see if they are actually welded. Most units have a diagram on the back. Follow it through with a multitester.

I have a Maytag dryer MDG6200AWW and at first the machine dried the clothes fine but never shut off. The second load got hot but not long enough to dry whole load. The timer does not advance at all. ...

Remove the front panel to get to the gas valve. To remove the panel remove both screws holding the door hinges and the screws on the opposite side from the hinges across the door opening.
Remove the metal bracket holding gas valve coils.
Replace both gas valve coils, part number 279834.

Good luck,

My maytag gas dryer timer does not turn, does not get hot, does not shut off unless I shut it, why?

HI. This will occur when the timer mechanism(timer motor assembly), becomes fused, or the motor itself has failed. The timer mech is the main initiator of all the selected cycles. If the timer is unable to rotate properly, the unit will not heat or stop as well. Replacing this defective timer module will correct this issue.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
