There are couples of things you need to verify. Check the igniter underneath the drum. In order to see it please open the panel. Ideally it should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the igniter shuts off. Suppose if you see that the igniter is not glowing then the issue is with the thermostat. If the igniter is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced. But suppose if the gas ignites but does not stay on then the flame sensor or the coils need to be replaced. Let us know if you need further clarification.

If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.
For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.
You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.
