    My dryer will run fine for 5 to 10 min but stops tumbling. The heating element stays on and the top of the dryer gets really hot. If you restart it after five min or so it will start back up but same problem occurs again.

    My model DBXR463EG1WW begins drying (tumbling, heating) and then the tumbling stops. The timer is still moving, and it appears the heat is still on because the top of the dryer and clothes are very warm. I can start it again, but it conks out after a few minutes. The dryer is only a little older than a year! (8/2007)

Could be a bad motor or timer contacts. can you hear a humming sound coming from the motor if you tried starting it again? if there is none, wait for about 5 mins and try starting it again, hear what happens?..

Dryer keeps cutting off and has to be restarted.

There is normally a switch inside the motor that detects in turning at speed. That keeps the dryer running until it is either stopped, the door is opened, or the cycle is through. I am guessing that the contacts are getting bad on this switch.

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.
