Check the following to address this issue. replace the sensor if all below checks out to be OK.
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.
Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.(Flame sensor).

flame sensor is closed when dark, open with the ignitor light. Thermostat is closed when cold, open when reach temperture. Ignitor is a closed circut but high resistant value, put your meter on 10k. Also to the gas valve 110volts be carefull.
