To check the igniter ya need to use multimeter set to ac voltage and check for 120 vac coming into the igniter if ya have 120 volts ac and the igniter does not glow the igniter is the problem. This tip i wrote covers what to check when a gas dryer does not heat http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10293028-gas_dryer_not_heating
There is a pressure regulator built into the gas valve, so no, if you mean an external pressure regulator. If the dryer had previously ran on propane, then the valve would have to be converted back.
I'm assuming your using a standard gas line with gas supplied by a normal utility company.
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.

Gas to Propane requires a Propane Certified technician. These technicians are provided by the company that provides Propane that they will be using.
You may need to get a Propane conversion kit, for technician from the Propane company to install.
You can certainly double check on this...Hope this helps.
Good day, Yes. Two reasons. The orifice that the gas comes out is a different size, and the regulator that determines gas pressure is disabled when using Propane, since propane has the regulator on the tank.
If you are not 100% sure what your doing, call a qualified company to perform the conversion. Isn't worth the gamble. Propane is, unlike natural gas, heavier than air. It can pool in a low spot then ............
The propane you buy for your BBQ is liquid in the bottom of the tank. At the top, it comes out as a gas, which you run through a regulator and then into your grill. If you by some chance turn the tank sideways, the valve inside will shut and keep the liquid propane from coming out. If it did you could have a serious fire.
However, there is a difference between what most folks call "Natural Gas" and propane. If you have gas piped into your home, it's natural gas and not propane.
Natural gas dryers won't run right on propane (LP Gas) and vice versa. There is usually a conversion kit you can buy to switch them over.
