Sounds like you need an ignitor part number 5318EL3001A but you will need a gas technician to work on this legally. Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

You need to replace your igniter coil element. That is what ignites your burner.

SOURCE: gas dryer heats then stops, then heats then stops,

Vacuum out the exhaust and intake vents for the burner which tend to collect lint and impede air flow.

Make sure to check all the thermal fuses in the dryer.
if one of the has not got any continuity then replace it.
there is also a chance that the ignitor has gone bad and is not allowing the gas valve to open.
