Check the following to address this issue.
1. A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
2. Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
If all checks out OK above, replace the main control board.

most dryers have a thermal switch or breaker in the cavity somewhere, they can become worn over time and will stop heating, the item probably looks like a copper arm that touches a contact similar to a old morse code key by looks

This is most likely due to the coils on the gas valve, they can become unstable and cause the symptoms you are describing. The coil kit is part number 279834 and runs about $20.00. It is replaceable from the front and not too hard to do.
Side note: the '8' in your model number is actually a 'B'
