Possibly a door switch, or starting switch near timer assembly. it could also be a bad breaker, dryers have a double breaker, even if you are getting electricity to part of your dryer 1 bad breaker might not let the rest of the dryer work. With electrical experiance,and elect. tools, have some one test breakers and plug voltage.

Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

KitchenAid Dryer Timer stopped working - won't stop drying


Timers cannot be repaired. The mechanism is a spring - once it weakens, or fails - a new timer is required.

CLICK HERE for your part.

It is $83.72 USD.

Here is a Buy-it-Now eBay auction for $34.99USD & Free shipping!!
CLICK HERE

Your part number for the timer is 3976570a

A used part would have to come from an appliance store that salvaged from an abandoned washer.... and it may fail shortly anyway.
The new timer will have a warranty, and give you 10 more years of service.
Well worth it.

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.
