Question about Maytag Dryers
You most likely have to replace the POS timer, my girlfriend\'s failed out of the box, a month later and again two years later. I dissected the timer and found the cheapest set of plastic reduction gears between the timer motor and the gear that drives the knob, and one of them had the teeth stripped off.
You can find them on ebay for less than $50 shipped rather than pay $100+ for one from a parts store.

the timer has a small motor to advance the timer. the motor is the likely problem. on some old maytags you can get just the motor, but you probably will have to replace the complete timer. hope this helps.

Will the dryer move forward in timed dry? if it does not then you need a new timer. If if will advance in timed dry but does not advance in auto mode then the high limit needs to be replaced on the heater.

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.

Sounds like the door contact switch is stuck in the on position.
You can replace the switch pretty easily.
Turn off the power, and with a phillips stubby screwdriver, remove the two screws in the front kick panel of the front panel and tip the bottom edge out. There are two metal retainer clips on the top edge of the front panel and as you tip the panel, the top retainers will disengage. There are 2 wires on the front panel to the door switch that are easily popped off and the switch will pop out of the front panel with minimal effort. I'm sure you can find a door switch for this online at repairclinic.com
