Could be a bad set of burner coils. Does the glow come on for a bit then goes out. And after a bit does same?
Probably bad coils. If you were able to change ignitor, you can do the coils. Unplug first! The coils are the 2 black cylinder shaped devices on burner. They are held on with a bracket that has 2 phillips screws. You can probably take them to your parts house and they can ohm them out for you. Make sure to write down their position before removing them.

They normally have a thermal cut out on the rear, behind a small cover or rubber area. Reset this by pushing it in. You have probably let it get too hot at some point by not keeping the filter cleaned often enough, or the outlet hose getting blocked. If there is not a reset, or it doesn't resolve the problem, it may be a fault with the hetaer element. These are not normally difficult to replace, just normally difficult to get to!

theres a thermal fuse located on back panel usually white maybe 2 inches tall 1/2 wide 2 blue wires leading to it. ck for continuity, if none replace that(most common problem)... if good you can go back to the ignitor and unplug the white connector it plugs into. place your meter leads into the connector and turn on dryer, you should get 110v. if you do you have a bad ignitor, if not a thermo's gone bad (check the thermal fuse first though.

SOURCE: dryer will not heat up
if the ignitor doesn't glow it could be broke it is vary fragile, and made of carbon, you might want to have a tech come out, if you can see it with a flash light it has 1 screw that holds it in place if you can get it out unplug it, take it to R.E.Michaels a supply house over the us if not look for an appliance co, that has parts and you have to get the one with the same plug and hold down. you can instal it your self but remember do not touch the carbon part, it is sensitive to the oils in your skin only handle with the hold down,, if you touch the caron as soon as it lights up it will break, no doubts in that----good luck

From the description you give the most likely cause of this problem are bad gas coils or a bad gas valve.
You say you see the flames for 10 minutes before it stops heating but you don't mention if the igniter is continuing to glow. One thing we need to know is if the igniter continues to cycle on and off when the dryer stops heating.
There is a small square plug on the front panel you can remove to try and visually check if the igniter is glowing.
The problem won't be the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats. Once the fuse is open the dryer won't heat but it won't start to heat after 20 minutes.
After the dryer runs ten minutes and stops heating then check if the igniter is still cycling on and off. This is important because if the igniter is working then the thermostats and igniter are okay.
When the igniter glows at some point you might hear a click and the igniter would stop glowing. The click is from the flame sensor and after the click and the voltage is removed from the igniter at the same instant the voltage is applied to the gas coils and you should get a flame.
You might hear a hum, buzz or vibration from the coils when this happens. If the coils seem to react to the voltage but there is no flame then most likely the gas valve is bad. If the coils don't do anything then most likely the coils are the problem. The gas valve and gas coils can work for 10-15 minutes and then heat up and stop working till everything cools down.
One other thing I must tell you about the gas coils. Here is a link to the gas coils you will need. These are the new style that will last quite a bit longer the the older one. The coils are like the spark plugs in your car. The will need replacing in time due to wear. Below is a video to walk you thru the repair process.
