Question about Maytag PYE4557A Dryer
Number 5 on this diagram is most likely your problem. This thermal limit will trip if temps exceed 300f rapidly. These dryers have a plastic blower wheel. The hub tends to wear out and slip causing excessive temps and longer clothes drying times.
Get the front off and inspect for lint

what is the model number?there are a couple of things you can check with the little info you sent,check the door switch,push the paddle in and out ,if it doesn't click it's bad,check to see if the belt broke,on some dryers there is a switch down near the pulley,if the belt brakes the dryer won't run,one more thing if your dryer hasn't had a clean out in a long time or if your clothes have been taking a long time to dry check the thermal fuse located on top of the blower wheel housing,if the lint filter is on top the fuse is in the back,take off the vent line,remove the back panel and check the fuse located to the right and down near the bottom of the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is inside then the fuse is in the front the fuse is on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing,also you should clean out the duct that the filter slides into,blow out the vent line,check outside and make sure the flapper is not blocked with anything and vac out the inside of the dryer where the motor is,you need to do this once a year anyway,if you still need help send the model number and let me know what you find,unplug the dryer to clean it and when working on it and remove one of the wires when using your meter
