Question about GE Dryers
Sounds like bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils start to fail the ignitor will glow,the coils let the gas in until the coils heat up and then ignitor glows but no gas.when the coils cool down they might work again for a short time until they heat up and fail again.if the flame lights and goes out after like 30 seconds and goes out and keeps doing this you have a block either in the dryer or the vent line but it sounds like you have bad gas coils.unplug the dryer,get at the valve,pull off the wires going to the coils and check them with a meter,one should be open,just remove the two phillips screws pull off the cover and slide the coils up off of the posts,unplug them and put the new coils on,you'll see like a little piece of plastic on the top of the coils,this fits intoo the cover so they line up correctly and holds them in place,also on the larger coil there's a spacer on the post,if you don't see it look inside the old coil,poke out the spacer and slide it onto the post and then install the coil.

odess, sounds like you need a new set of coils for the valve. Easy job. Remove the bottom access panel and you will see the gas valve. Remove the top screws from the coils and the coils will lift off and then unplug the harnesses. Install the new coils. Part number for your coils is 12001349. Price about 18.00 Check them out at repairclinic.com This should take care of your heating issues. Catriver.

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

It sounds like an air flow issue. There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. If the venting is not sucking the flame down the tube it will cycle very quickly and never reach the right temp.
