My 20 yr old Maytag dryer had experienced this problem about 10 years ago. At that time I replace the Gas Dyer Radiant Flame sensor and it fixed the problem. I figured a sensor went bad again however I opted to replace all of the sensors at once thinking I'm avoiding potential future issues and the dryer will out live me. Replacing the sensors is a piece of cake on my Maytag. A nutdriver and srewdriver was all that I needed. PartSelect was great to deal with and the parts did the trick.

I removed the two screws on the front of the dryer and pulled out the bottom of the dryer front until the clips on the top came loose. Next I removed the two screws that hold the thermostat in place and then switched the wires from the old one to the new one. I did them one at a time to ensure that they didn't get mixed up. After that I reinstalled the thermostat and then replaced the front of the dryer. The timer now advances when it is in auto mode.
a lady from church couldn't get her dry to dry. older maytag gas dryer. built really good. took off the front panel, tested the different thermostats and found the one that was broken. replaced the igniterwhile I was at it. hooked up the exhaust and fired her up. Make sure all of the lint is vac'ed out of the system. thats what built up and cooked the thermostat.
This is a gas dryer. I was able to access the thermostat through the small front access panel. Not easy to see but with a short nut driver I could take out the two screws. I was able to pull the thermostat to the front panel hole and switch the wires. Putting it back in was a challange since I had to do it by feel since I could not look and get my arm in at the same time. Suggest anyone that does this put a small piece of paper around the screw to hold it in the driver
Firts replaced a thermostate - did not fix the proble. ( had a glow from the starter but no flame.)checked igniter sensor OK (got no resistance) so replaced the two coils that sit on top of the gas burner. With new coils noticed a much brighter glow from the igniter and the gas line opened up to produce a flame Dryer has workd successfully for the last 5 loads. Able to run dryer with the front removed by holding in the microswitch activated when door is closed.
