If the ignitor clicks off after a few seconds of glowing bright orange, You know
that the flame switch mounted to the left of the burner tube is OKAY.
At the moment the click of the flame switch is observed, the burner valve should release gas for burner ignition. If the ignitor turns off with no ignition, and you are positive you're getting gas supply to the dryer, you likely will have to replace the two coil valve solenoids on the top of the burner.
The valve itself is extremely reliable and rarely needs replaced.
The two safety coils may gradually fail over weeks, or even months giving longer dry times and only partial heating. As safety coils are failing, they'll work fine for only a short amount of time, and then after about 30 minutes of cycling on and off to maintain the drum's temperature, they will break down and cease to open the valve leaving you with cool or wet clothing at the end of the cycle.
IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS, BUT NEVER CLICKS OFF you likely have a bad flame switch (flame sensor).
I think that the coil valve solenoids need to be replaced. They have to be replaced as a set. Here is a link of a video that might help you out.

I really hope this helps you out. If it does, let me know. Even if it doesn't, I will be more than happy to try and help you figure out the problem.
