Question about Dryers
Mine did same thing within warranty. There is a motherboard problem in them that is cause by power surge during an eletrical storm. First try unplugging for 10 minutes and see if it resets. If that doesn't work, you need to have the motherboard replaced that runs the unit.
Repair man took the front off my unit and replaced entire motherboard. He stated that it was a known issue with that motherboard. I have had no problems since my motherboard was replaced 18 months ago.

Email me a response to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be more than happy to provide you with parts breakdown illustrations and possible part numbers and locations to replace. The service amount verses the do-it yourself amount will be well worth the savings. Typical labor cost on appliances are 75.00 per hour and a mark up on the parts. If you feel you can do it yourself after getting the photos e-mailed to you, it will save you approx 200.00 if not a lil less or a lil more.
Please rate this solution "fix-ya" if it seems to satisfy your question.

Most times that is a sign that the gas coils are weaking. I am having a little trouble with your model number so I' not sure what your part numbers will be. Get with me later if you should find the model numer to be different. On Maytag they are inside the door. I am not saying that you are wrong but that I could find only this series MGD9700SB0 One coil should be part number 694540 Coil, 60 Hz. (2 Terminal) (Main) and the other part number 694539 Coil, 60 Hz. (Split) (3 Terminal) (Pilot Position) You can find these valve in a larger photo discription on this page=> Seabreeze Appliance Parts just click on photo to enlarge.
This is the 694540 and you can find Here=> 694540
