Question about Whirlpool LGB6300 Gas Dryer
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
Your power for the burner assy goes on a series circuit from the timer to the high-limit thermostat to the operating thermostat to the thermal fuse to the gas burner assy, thru the motor centrifugal switch to the door switch. EACH of these must be functioning for the burner to light.
This manual will help with some of the how to do it as far as component access, removal and replacement of parts.
Also this link has loads of information on what to check.
The 3 most common failures are

On the left side of dryer you'll see a plastic cap,pop it off,start the dryer and look inside the hole and see if the ignitor is glowing,if it doesn't you could have a bad sensor or the ignitor is bad,unplug the dryer and with a meter check the sensor and the ignitor to see what's bad.if it does glow and then goes out without lighting you could have bad gas coils or a bad gas valve,let me know what you find
