It probably has a glow plug not a pilot, tun on the drier and watch for 15 seconds to see if a glow is visible, Not knowing the year or type of drier makes this hard to reply to, but if you do see no glow,, check the main fuse (thermo) at the rear of the unit and replace

Pilot working but will not dry completely.

Check the burner vents--both intake and outlet for lint plugging. With the pilot working, it is supposed to heat a thermocouple which generates electricity that opens the main gas valve.

My kenmore gas dryer ignites and the flame shuts off after 10 sec

The valve on the pilot may need to be replaced. The springs get worn and wont stay up. Otherwise you could replace the entire pilot unit with a kit.

Dryer will not heat

The answer is no, you do not have a pilot light. What you have is an electronic ignition which is faulty. Call in a repairman and you will be back up and running in no time.

How to light the pilot?

If this is an electric dryer, it doesn't have a pilot either. If this is a gas dryer it will have an electric pilot. but then if it were a gas dryer, it would have a removable lower front panel for servicing the burner. So you must have an electric dryer. if the dryer runs but does not heat, the electric element is most likely at fault. If you really were looking for a pilot light on an electric dryer, I must recommend that you call a reputable appliance service regarding repairs so as to not jeopardize your safety.

Pilot light

Pilot Light? Are you sure? All the gas dryers I've ever worked on were pilot-less. There should be a glow-type ignitor that heats up when the dryer is turned on. When it reaches a certain current potential a gas valve is opened and the burner ignites. How old is this dryer? Maybe this is something I've never seen before.
