Most common reasons for a gas dryer to fail: 1. No electric, 2. no gas supply, 3. failed ignitor, 4. failed flame sensor. If 1 & 2 are ruled out, then we go from there. An ignitor/glow ignitor is what gets hot and allows the gas to be ignited. Most dryers will not let the igntior come on if the flame sensor is down. Replacing an ignitor is very easy. Usually 1 screw and a molex (special type of plastic electrical connection). Molex connection will usually pull apart very easily. This repair should cost less than about $30 if you buy it online. There are step by step instructions for this repair on this website if you search for "gas dryer no heat troubleshooting." Making this repair will require access to the internal workings of your dryer. Make sure the dryer is unpluged from the wall before you access it or the control panel.
