Everything works fine except it will not heat.
It was heating up for a few loads and then would stop and then it would heat up again.
It has now stopped heating all together.
I have cleaned all inside the dryer by going through the front bottm panel.
What else can I check?

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating
the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows
sometimes it is still not working properly.
Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible
from picking up the top on most models). If you have 220v there the
heater element is out. If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the
heater the problem is in the controls. The fuse link, the timer
contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety
thermostat and operating (s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated
1 by 1. Hope this helps. With any luck all you need is a new element.
Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main
thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow a kinked
Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan on the motor are the 3 main
causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet
these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this
helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.
