I agree with ecg that the problem is likely a resetable thermal switch fuse that is tripping due to over-temperature, which in turn is due to lint buildup.

I also have a Maytag dryer. About once a year I remove the drum and thoroughly vacuum the innards. It's an old dryer, so it's pretty simple to do this. Newer ones such as yours may be more difficult to disassemble.

In addition to cleaning the inside of the dryer, make sure the exhaust duct-work is clean.
