Question about Kenmore 72602 Gas Dryer
We think it has an electronic ignition (dryer is less than 5 yrs old).
SOURCE: Inglis gas dryer heat loss
It sounds like you have an intermittent gas valve. The ignitor is calling for heat however the gas valve doesnt want to open.
Make sure you turn off the gas and unplug before replacing.
Check for leaks after you reassemble.

Most new dryers don't actually have pilot lights. They use an electric heater that turns red hot, and ignites the gas at the right time. If your trying to light the pilot light (which probably doesn't exist) because the gas isnt being ignited,,, its possible that the electric igniter needs to be replaced.

Check the flame sensor mounted to fire tube, its a rectagle with a glass window, also the coil can be replaced on gas valve if they are weak,
You definitly want to check the exhaust vent and vacume.
