Kenmore gas dryer #41793142300 electronic start doesnt heat up

if you first have heat and then like 10 to 20 minutes later no heat you could have bad gas coils,on most gas dryers there's a plastic cap you can pop off on the front panel so you can look in and see the ignitor,if at first the ignitor glows orange and the flame lights then after a few minutes the ignitor glows orange and the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils,they are located on the top of the gas valve,easy to change.part number 5303931775 go here and look at part 71
