SOURCE: maytag gas dryer wont heat
Since your hot surface ignitor is glowing, that means it is trying to heat, or that all the temp. switches are good and the timer is sending the signal. First check that there is actually gas pressure to the dryer. But the common problem is the coils on the gas valve. There are two, called the booster/holding coil, and the secondary coil. They are purchased as a set (part #279834 / $20.00) if it is the same as my mdg8600aww model. If that doesn't work, then likely the gas valve itself.
Sometimes those coils will open circuit when they warm up, and close when they cool down, giving you an erratic operation symptom.

You need to have 220-240 or so volta ACROSS the two terminals on the element...the 125 can feed across and can be the same leg on both sides...
