Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description I suspect you have a faulty bake ignitor. This may surprise you, or it may not. I think at first it surprises people when the hot surface ignitor glows but the oven either will lite but go out shortly after or won't lite at all.
Since the ignitor "glows" one figures it would appear to be working, that would be wrong. These ignitor's serve 2 functions, first it need's to maintain a set value to open/activate the gas valve, typically around 3.5amps... & 2nd Ignite the fuel once said valve is open.
A poor/faulty ignitor may glow & and even ignite the burner intermittently for moments at a time ( thus giving off some heat but never the set amount or not at all ) but yet not reach the needed value to open the valve consistently nor adequately, hence the need to replace the bake ignitor.
Try this ( replacing the hot surface ignitor ) and I'm certain you'll be up & running and as they say " cookin' with gas" !
**Be sure to unplug the range and turn off the gas before performing any service to the unit...safety first**
I`d also suggest you try the oven on just "broil" as well to insure that ignitor is ok. The top ( broil ignitor ) is the exact same, so you can swap them around as a test to confirm indeed the bake ignitor is faulty..or not.
Here's a helpful link to help check and diagnos the hot surface ignitor, it will varify exactly what I've explained...
You should refer to your specific model when ordering the part locally or on-line. The most common hot surface ignitor part is #12400035 (see image ) and it pretty much fits everything, but your ignitor is 9753108 by my search.
Either one is made by "Norton" as most are. The first is a Maytag/Magic Chef part number, the second ( yours ) is Whirlpool which is the manufacturer of your Kitchen Aid.
Try places like repairclinic.com, searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com etc.
Thanks for visiting "fixya", let me know if you require further assistance and good luck.
