Check your igniter coil. It sounds like this part could be going bad. Another possibility is that the thermostat is defective. Some dryers have more than one thermostat.

Yet another possibility is that your thermal fuse is faulty.

I would check this webpage for more troubleshooting hints:

Kenmore Gas Clothes Dryer does not heat sufficiently

Ok, first and foremost, make sure your vent is clean and clear.
If the vent is clean and free of obstructions the most likely culprit is your gas valve coils. When they fail the typical symptom is heat at the beginning of the cycle and no heat about 20 minutes later.
If you can, post the complete model number from the dryer and I will give you step by step tear-down and replacement of parts instructions.

There is no heat

Check the exhaust vent tubing throughout. If clogged up with lint the sensor will shut the heating completely off all the time till cleaned

It could be a couple of things, but I would start with the flame sensor. Different models work differently.

Kenmore gas dryer starts to heat but does not maintain the heat. It cools down after a few minutes.

Something simple for you to try is: remove the duct from the dryer,run a cycle,IF the unit works fine, you will need to have your vent system cleaned to the outside. If you still have troubles, you will need to place a service call to have the unit diagnosed

Are you getting little or no lint on the lint screen? Are the clothes coming out nearly as wet as they went in, but feel warm? If so, you probably have a blockage somewhere in the vent/duct. Don't just check the back of the dryer, but also check the duct thru the wall and the point where it exits the house (exterior wall or roof). Many times birds will nest in the exterior vents or if they have a screen to keep the birds out it may become clogged with lint. If you have a window nearby try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the wall and hang it out the window (you COULD vent it into the house, but you may end up with lint everywhere and a lot of moisture in your house).
