Dryer would heat up at startup but not stay hot for long. Took forever to dry clothes. Started smelling a very slight gas leak about a week before the problem started. I suspect the coils have been going lame for quite some time. The dryer heats up like it was new.

Downloaded a schematic of the dryer controls. Watched a UTUBE video of how to remove the front panel of a Maytag Performa dryer. It was pretty easy. Consulted your website and found out that bad coils are typical of the symptoms 46% of the time. I have bought parts from you before and happy with results.
