I have a Maytag Dryer that will not shut off on any cycle. Timer setting, auto setting any the dryer never shuts off. It is heating and drying clothes fine, the knob will turn, if I physically turn it to off it shuts off. Also now the push to start knob is getting stuck(doubt its related). I've searched a few things but unclear on if it could be the control panel, thermistor, knob. Any help is appreciated.

Is your compliant that the timer advances past the OFF position for a setting or that the timer just never advances on its own?

The timer never advances it is usually caused by a fault in the timer itself.

If it only occurred on an 'auto' cycle, the dryness electronic might be responsible instead. If it continued past the off position, the start switch being shorted could cause it.

perfect thank you! would you happen to know about the push to start button sticking? it gets stuck down and i have to pull it forward while turning to get it to pop back up in order to push to start. What would need to be replaced?
