Your gas valve coils need changing.
Once they heat up they are shutting down.

How do you relight the piolt on a gas dryer?

it must be a fairly old gas dryer, because anything new does not have a pilot light. so if it has a pilot light, there will be an access panel in the front bottom of the dryer and you light it just like you do a water heater. good luck

It wont heat

never heard of having a pilot light as well an ignitor, the two don't go together. If your have a pilot light that is on the unit is getting gas. If there is pilot light there is usually a knob to switch between pilot light, off, and active on. maybe set to pilot light only.

No heat gas log furance

if it has a pilot light, then it would not have an ignitor. also if it has a pilot light, it should have a knob that has settings for just the pilot light, just off, or on. Find that knob and check settings

the piolt should light on its own if it does not then listen for 2 clicks on the second click if there is no flame the ignightor is bad if ther isnt 2 clicks then the coil pack is bad. and the most abvious is make sure your gas is turned on.

My gas dryer, 6 yrs old, isn't getting hot.

best way out for you is to have it serviced, it's most likley to be a thermal couple bevice not working if this is it the pilot light wont stay alight as well,,, the thermal couple has the pilot flam playing onto it and it holds the gass on,,, if the pilot light go's out for whatever reson the thermal couple switches off the gas suply to make it safe,,,
hope this helps you out?
