yes its right on the money it takes about 30 seconds for the ignighter to reach enough tempeture to open the safety valve this assures that the ignighter is hot enough to instantly ignite the gas before the safety valve will release it

Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.
If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.

This is a classical sign of weak coils. there are 2 coils in the machine that turn the gas on as they energize. i see this problem very often and i'm 100% certain that this is your problem. please contact me for further info in needed. thank you :)

This problem is caused by faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves. It is recommended that if any of the gas valve coils are suspected of fault, that they both (all) be changed at once. Hope this helped and best wishes.
