Relighting pilot of Amana Dryer

I have amana dryer LG8319W2; pilot light is out. I cleaned out the dust and lint that was obvious. I seem to remember lighting this before by simply holding one of those longer lighters to the area to ignite the gas, but wanted to make sure that is what I should do and I won't present a problem for fire. Is it as simple as that; it's been quite a few years since I've had this problem with this dryer....
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

SOURCE: my gas dryer's igniter glows,

im sure the theory would be the same as the whirlpool, in the whirlpool, they have this flame sensor, if it senses the heat from the igniter, the it would open the solenoid valve to release the gas to ignite and hold it open as long as there is flame present.

it could be a defective flame sensor.

SOURCE: Gas dryer won't run when pushing start. Motor not comming on.

There is a small resetable fuse athe back under the top cover being held by a plate that has a screw holding it in place. To test just connect the wires together. I see this all the time on those modeles.

Is there a pilot light on amana gas dryer model LG4309W

There is no standing pilot light. The gas is ignited by a hot surface device that is electrically controlled. Trace the exhaust venting to locate the burner area.
