If the burner assembly is not lighting I would recommend you look into an igniter replacement. If the igniter is worn, or does not work at all, the gas safety valve will not open and you'll never get ignition. The part number is 279311.
If the burner assembly lights, then goes out after a few minutes, I would recommend you replace the gas valve solenoids. There are two of them on the burner assembly. It is recommended that you replace BOTH of them at the same time. The part numbers are 69540 and 69539. Searspartsdirect.com has an excellent illustration of your dryer. Just type in your model number and look under the "Burner Assembly" heading. The igniter is listed as item 4. The solenoids are items 13 and 14.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.

Check the outside vent again while the dryer is running. There should be a good strong air flow, if not then your problem is in the exhaust system somewhere
