Question about Kenmore Dryers
The most common reason for not heating enough is air flow. It sounds like you have already checked the vent behind the dryer and made sure you have air flow all the way to the outside vent. That being said, the next most common thing that can happen on a gas dryer is the coil kit on the valve itself can work when the dryer is cold and first starts up. Once the coils heat up a bit they breakdown and turn the gas off. It would have to cool down for a quite a while between cycles to start again.
I would need your complete model number from the tag just inside the door to give specific part numbers and details in how to repair. To check this you can run the dryer, there should be a little window in the front panel near either the right or left bottom corner, take the small square plug from this window, if it does not have a window it may have a lower panel that will hinge down. This will let you view the flame. Watch the flame and it run for a bit then shut off. What happens next is important to know what has failed. Look for a glow in a few minutes. if it glows then the glow goes out without a flame the coils are bad.
I hope this helps. If you need more information let me know, and if you can send the model number with the request that would help
