Check the following to address this issue.(Most common issue will be a burned out thermal fuse.)
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

does the flame lite?the ignitor should come on and then the flame lites and will stay on until the dryer reaches the right temp. then it shuts off,if the flame isn't liting no gas is coming in,bad gas coils will do this or the gas valve,most likely it's the coils located on top of the valve,take out the two phillips screws,remove the cover and change out the coils
