Question about Dryers
Check first whether the ignitor is glowing red hot or not when the dryer turns on. Also check it for damage. If the ignitor glows red hot then the problem is either the flame/radiant sensor or the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valve assembly. If the ignitor doesn't glow, check it for damage and if it turns out good, there's a problem in the heating circuit. Refer to the wiring diagram and check the continuity of heating circuit.

See if the timer advances in the timed dry or the auto dry cycles. If the timer advances in timed dry but not in auto dry, then you could have a wire connection failure in the orange wire from the heating element to the timer.
If the timer will not advance in either type of cycle, then I recommend checking the timer part number that you are using.
