replace the igniter. The ignitor is the most comon problem with gas appliances checking continuity does not tell you if it is bad or not it has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas safty valve and the is no safe way to check this on most gas dryers

Sounds like the valve is trying to open and the buzzing is the restriction of it opening. Coil is obviously correct, but actual solonoid is sticking. Replace it and see. If flame isnt detected, it will stop.

It's likely the problem with the airflow. High limit thermostat is turning the gas valve off. Clean/replace the vent and lint trap.Check if there is anything stuck to the grille inside the dryer.

you still have a block somewhere.remove the duct that the lint filter slides into,make sure the outside vent is clear and blow out the vent line with a leaf blower,i told this to someone else and they blew a birds nest out of the line and they said the line was clear,also remove the t-stats on the blower wheel housing and check the back of them,sometimes lint and dust gets stuck on the back of them and they don't read right.if that looks fine change out the gas coils but i'd say you have a clog somewhere
