Dryer start stop
Have gone through the forum and troubleshooting guides. Cleaned everything installed new thermistor...problem continues. In any function with heat and without heat dryer starts easily but runs any from 2 sec. to 60 sec. but not any longer...heat to air fluff...control board looks alright but don't know...think I got the fault code for power failure...I am down to either the timer control board or perhaps the motor. Can anyone out there help me?

Model#: AH1013719

Did you get an answer on this. Your issue sounds like mine and I also have a maytag with a Power Failure message.

This is an old post so I imagine you have the same model number and problem.
Is this correct?

When it shuts down can you restart it right away?

If not it could be a motor problem.
The motor overheats, trips it's internal thermal protect and then you have to wait fro the motor to cool down and the thermal protect to reset.

You could try ceaning the connections is the control panel.

Unfortunately it does sound like the control board is toast.

Connector Cleaning / Checking
Unplug the unit
Open it up
Remove the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board at the control board.
Clean the edge connector.
If it is the type where there is not a connector just the insulation is removed, it can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Do not use an ink eraser as it is too abrasive.
Check the tracks in the ribbon cable for hairline cracks. A magnifying glass helps here.
Would not hurt to clean the connector on the board. Use electronics contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush. Be gentle and do not reconnect till all the solvent evaporates.
Reconnect everything and give it a try.
