Question about Dryers
Your dryer may have a spark igniter or a hot wire igniter .. those go bad after so many hours .. if you look in where the flame usually is .. as your start the dryer, you should see a small glowing wire if its a hot wire igniter .. or you should hear clicking and see sparks if its a spark igniter .. if you dont see/hear either then thats likely your problem .... both of those parts are available from washer/dryer parts distributors or GE parts on the internet .. but you have to know the make and model number of your dryer .. you should find that on a tag inside the door or on the back. .. if it actually ignites but quickly shuts off then you probably have a clogged exhaust hose or lint filter chamber .. it reqires a large unrestricted air flow thru the machine. if that is blocked then a sensor shuts off the gas in just a few seconds . . i am assuming that the drum is turning .. if not then thats a whole different problem ..

Replace the ceramic ignitor WE4X444. An easy fix. Nut is on the gas valve (not the line) to remove the burner assembly to replace the ignitor.
