Question about Dryers
Hello- It sounds like the gas coils are bad and not holding the valve open. It's a pretty common issue. The parts are pretty cheap but you should have someone out to change them for you. Hope this helps, best regards.

Hello Chuck, thanks for your inquiry
Based off the information you have provided I have identified a few possibilities as to why your dryer is not heating could be the element, thermostat, or control panel. Each component controls the heat within your dryer and if one goes out it is possible that can cause the rest to not function properly. To accurately find out the reason to why your dryer is not heating I would recommend having a professional come out. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

If your dryer has an access panel at the bottom front remove it. Start the dryer in a cycle and watch the burner area. You should see the ignitor start to glow. After a few seconds of it glowing you should hear a click and the gas come on and ignite. If the ignitor does not glow, look on the top of the air duct to the left of the gas valve. You will see 2 temp sensors. One will be white with 2 small blue wires going to it. UNPLUG THE DRYER NOW Remove the wires and connect them together. BE SURE THEY DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE
Plug dryer back in and start dryer again and see if ignitor glows and burner lights. If it works now, you need a new thermal fuse. You also want to make sure the vent duct is not clogged with lint or the hose is not kinked. I DO NOT recommend that you run the dryer with this bypassed. It is a safety mechanism.
If this is not the problem or your dryer is not front servicable, post back and i will try to walk you through the problem.
