Question about Maytag Dryers
Sounds like the drive belt is either broken or slipped off of the drive pulley. You will need to ope it up and check. If that is the case, a new belt (ordered from Maytag) will get it working again. Most dryers are opened by removing the entire front panel, door and all. Once that's removed, you should see the drum, and below it somewhere, an electric motor. There should be a belt going from that motor around the entire drum. If that's not there, you need a new belt.

SOURCE: no heat after a minute of drying
Hi. i would recommend checking all component's below for faults. replace any that are defective or damaged.
1. Gas valve coils
igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.
Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.
2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.
Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).
4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

SOURCE: no heat to a gas dryer
Sounds like the problem is the solenoid coils on your gas valve. easy to replace and inexpensive + common. their are 2 coils on the valve that have 2 wires each going to them. Let me know if you have any other questions,
