You can get the conversion kit. It will tell you how to convert the dryer. I recommend that you get a technician to do it though.
This gas dryer is equipped with a Valve & Burner Assembly
for use only with natural gas. Using conversion kit

SOURCE: MY GE GAS DRYER WILL NOT HEAT UP
check an pop the lil plastic cover on the front of the dryer an then turn the dryer on an see if the igniter glows after 30 secnds if it glows........** you probably have bad coils****if it doesnt then check the thermal fuse for continuity if is not checking ok replace it , that is one of the most common causes,
1 check igniter for glowing
2 check thermal fuse for continuity test
3 if they both check ok an still no heat change the coils

SOURCE: maytag gas dryer wont heat
Since your hot surface ignitor is glowing, that means it is trying to heat, or that all the temp. switches are good and the timer is sending the signal. First check that there is actually gas pressure to the dryer. But the common problem is the coils on the gas valve. There are two, called the booster/holding coil, and the secondary coil. They are purchased as a set (part #279834 / $20.00) if it is the same as my mdg8600aww model. If that doesn't work, then likely the gas valve itself.
Sometimes those coils will open circuit when they warm up, and close when they cool down, giving you an erratic operation symptom.

Open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Then raise the top and you can get to the screws holding the front on. Get the front out and then the drum can come out so you can clean that guy out and replace that belt. How about some repair PHOTOS?
