Gas dryer does not heat

A gas dryer is nothing to mess with if it does not fire up the flame. Pull the lower kick plate off the front of the dryer, unplug the unit and clean out dust/lint build up. Vacuum as needed.
Then after checking that the gas valve that is connected to the end of the gas line that connects from the dryer to the wall, I recommend you get a professional.
Common failures are the pilot / ignition system / thermocouple.
No way to be more specific unless you provide the brand and model number of your dryer.

My Frigidaire gas dryer isn't hot. Otherwise it runs fine.

it could be either your ignitor(glow coil) flame sensor control, or a defective thermal switch telling dryer its at temp and shutting off gas supply before it even fires initially

Dryer heating problems

If this is a gas dryer, this is commonly caused by bad gas valve solenoids. Please post back with your make and model so I can verify your configuration and assist you further.

Maytag dryer MDG5500AWW will not heat. Tumbles but no heat.

Could be any number of things .. igniter ( which lights the fire that dries your clothes) over-temp switches ( that disable the gas valve from opening and won't let a fire get started..) Defective gas valve.. not opening to let gas in for the fire that dries our clothes..
Those are the main components in your system and not much more I can provide to you unless I had specific details on what you've checked etc.. maybe this link will help identify the parts associated with your dryer... and if your so inclined..can do your own diagnostics... Hope that helps...
