Note: Thank you in advance for any help with this issue.
Problem: In Permanent Press Cycle - Igniter Element will not glow and natural gas will not light at all, in Normal Cycle Igniter Element will glow then 3 loud clicks will be heard (sometimes) and natural gas supply will light for about 15-20 seconds but typically Igniter Element will glow NO loud clicks will be heard and natural gas supply will NOT light.
The only thing I don't know how to check is the very expensive Dryer Timer.
Item's I did clean and check: - Cleaned Thermal Cut-off & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good - Cleaned Thermal Fuse & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good - Cleaned Holding/Boosting Gas Coil & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good - Cleaned Secondary Gas Coil & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good - Cleaned Igniter Element & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good and functioning well - Cleaned Radiant Sensor & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good - Cleaned Vents and Lint Trap
Note: - No High Limit Thermostat Sensor on this model

Re: Kenmore Dryer only lights gas sporaticly
Replace the igniter. The ignitor is the most comon problem with gas appliances checking continuity does not tell you if it is bad or not it has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas safty valve and the is no safe way to check this on most gas dryers

Based on the information provided above, I am unable to provide a positive solution to your issue. Your model number is incomplete! I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search. This information is for a non-specific brand model, gas dryer.
This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site. You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these:
Vent Flame sensor/gas valve Internal ductwork Cycling thermostat Lint Filter
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Also note that, to maximize drying efficiency, the vent should be as short as possible.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.
