I have looked at your dryer schematic. The only thing that moves the timer forward towards the end of cycle is the timer motor. You are going to need a new timer, looks like they have one for 54 bucks HERE

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop


If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

I have a Maytag PYG3200AWW and it won't start.


Sounds like a problem with a limit control switch. Some are manual reset and some are automatic . Not sure about yours. They are located of course, in-line within the wiring harness limiting the amount of heat build-up within the machine. If yours had been running with a stopped up, or patially stopped up vent, (and your limit swithch IS AUTO reset,) then the switch could have been cycling the heat numerous times, over that period, preventing overtemperature conditions. This would weaken the switch because it is a safety device and not actually a cycling device. Also, in the vent exhaust, @ the back of the machine there may be a limit switch. And of course, it could always be the start button..........

Replaced timer module. Dryer did not run.


Check the voltage across the timer motor, make sure that you have 120 volts. If you have 120 across the timer motor, then it is bad. Also check your wiring to make sure you have wires in right place

Maytag dryer PYE3300AYW Continuously runs


jefo, it sounds to me like your timer is not advancing. Does it move at all or stay in place? In what you are saying it will stop when you turn it to off, I would think it could be the timer that is the problem. Part # 53-1810.
