Dryer heats for 5 minutes then no heat, but keeps tumbling

Perhaps the flame sensor is not working. If it does not sense heat, it will shut off the gas. You might go online and search for a manual to help you troubleshoot, or go to:
for troubleshooting help and parts. I hope this is of help to you.

Maytag performa electric dyer makes dragging noise drum turns but acts like something catches and makes a dragging or scraping sound

assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

Dryer turns off in 10 minutes.

To check the moisture sensors. Make sure the dyer is plugged in and all controls are set to off. Next to get into the diagnostic mode press more time, less time, more time, less time, all within 5 seconds. Now all indecator lights on the console are lit up with 88 in the " time remaining" display, if the test mode has been entered. Now this how to check the moisture sensors. Open the dryer door. You may hear a beep sound and the software revision number will be displayed on the console. If this happens there is a short in the moisture sensor system and the moisture sensors need to be checked and probably replaced. If this doesn`t happen,locate the moisture sensors on the face of the lintscreen housing and lay a wet cloth or towell across them. You should hear a beep and the software number will be diplayed on the console. If this happens then the moisture sensors have past the test and your problem is even deaper into the electronics and may reqiure a technician to trace this problem down.I hope this has helped you.

Dryer wont work!

A couple suggestions: (1) The switch in the front may be bad. It's the switch that turns the dryer off when you open the door. (2) Make sure the door latch keeps the door shut. If it is worn and the door isn't shut tight, the switch will not let it start. Hope this helps.
