this promblem is about always a vent promblem or not cleaning the drier filter if your using the plastic vent check if its mashed behind the drier you must have 4inch of vent all the way throuch if its mashed or folded over its cut down to 2inches if it hangs under your house then comes up to the outside vent housing it can fill with water if the outside hood door isnt oping that will do it too its in your vent some where what i tell cust to do is run 4inch pvc from out side hood up through floor then run short metel vent to pvg attach with clamp to confirm vent restriction take vent loose for one load and see if it dries in right amount of time

Hi, if you get no glow on the ignitor and you have voltage its the little white two terminal fuse on the exhaust side that has no continuity on the series 80 it has 2 blue wires, these complete the circuit for both gas valves and the ignitor. If you have an ohm meter it you will find it rite away. Hope this helps.

Unplug and turn off the gas feed. The fuse is located in the back of the series 70 attached to the lint housing near the bottom. About 1-1/2 inches long. Easy to remove, only two contact wire attachments. Note which wire goes where. Under $10.00 at an appliance parts store. Start with this fix.

If still no heat take out the ignitor assembly, located in the front, lower left. It is attached to the base of the dryer by 3 screws, the gas feed and two electrical wires with removable metal attachments (note which attachment goes where). The entire assembly will come out and the ingitor is attached to the front end. I took mine to the appliance parts store and it tested OK so it was the fuse. The owner helped me locate the fuse and suggested I try this first. The ignitor coil is about $25.00.

Both of these were easy enough for a novice (like me) to do. It saved a lot of money.

While the dryer was open I vacuumed out all the dust and lint and checked the integrity of the belt.

Good luck.

check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .

For heat issue I had replaced the heat relay switch a year ago and that worked. For the start button holding issue I replaced the motor relay switch and the dryer is fine again.
