You might want to take a flashlight and check the vent and duct from the outside in. Lint will build up in the duct and vent over time. When you turn on the dryer with wet clothes in it, the lint will get damp quickly and it will dry out quickly too which make the dryer cycle shorter but not long enough to dry the clothes. Clean the vent and duct regularly and that should take care of your problem. You can buy brushes for doing this and they are not costly.
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.

Check and clean your lint trap in the dryer.
Check and clean your hose, this could cause a fire if the hose becomes plugged with lint.
Also check your blower in the dryer to make sure the blades are ok and not broken.
Normally these are the cause of clothes not drying if the heating element is working.

My guess is you probably got some lint on the ignitor and cause a burnout or a limit to trip. If you don't hear the clicking associated with the ignitor heating up and the flame sensor kicking it off then I would check to see if maybe a limit was tripped. On gas dryers when the limit trips the dryer will operate but simply will not heat up. I have a full page with service manual included HERE
make sure that you always clean the lint trap ,this will cause the dryer not to heat... you may also have a blockage in the exaust vent.. If this does not work , you may have to replace the coil
valve .. located on the gas burner... if not gas ... replace the heating element....
if you use fabric softener. i recommend you slow it down...alot. an appliance guys nightmare is just that. inside fabric softener, is wax. your lint screen may look clean. but run it under hot water. ive come across many a lint screen where the water will simply not go through the screen, even though it appears to be sparkly clean.
