Yes, it is possible.
You have to get the right orifice's for Natural gas. LP gas orifice has twice the size hole as compared to Natural Gas. Using it without the right orifice will put out way too much gas, and you will burn everything, as well as it will be a fire hazard.
Your local gas company or propane company should be able to get you the right orifice
Please rate this solution.

I have an old Kenmore dryer that I need to convert from LP to gas. I have the parts but no instructions. Can you please help?
Thank you, Roxanne

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

You can get the conversion kit. It will tell you how to convert the dryer. I recommend that you get a technician to do it though.
This gas dryer is equipped with a Valve & Burner Assembly
for use only with natural gas. Using conversion kit
WE25X0217, your local service organization can convert
this dryer for use with propane (LP) gas. ALL CONVERSIONS

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!

Typically, the only thing required is changing any and all jets since energy content and pressure are different. The only source for these is probably the manufacturer; check their website.
