SOURCE: gas dryer not heating properly
This sounds like the flame sensor is bad to me.
If it does not work properly, the unit will shut off for safety. The machine assumes that the burner did not light and rather than run gas into your house, it shuts off. It may try to start a certain number of times and then shut off.
You may be able to remove and clean it (flame sensor) lightly with a scotch brite pad and it may work properly again.
Otherwise it will need replacement.
This is a very common problem and the part is probably in stock.
Post a comment on your progress as this solution is likely to be useful to many people.
The problem is not the gas valve.
