Question about Amana ALG331RAW Gas Dryer
The igniter glows for a minute, the gas is ignited, then the flame goes out before the temperature of the dryer heats up. The igniter glows again but no flame after that. When the dryer is left to sit for a while, it will repeat the same symptoms above.
I replaced the igniter and also the gas valve coils. Same problem happens. I also checked the vent line, it is free and clear, i get good air flow.
About all that is left to replace is the flame sensor mounted at 9o'clock on burner flame tube, but I would double check your airflow, This is CRUCIAL to the normal operation of the dryer.
Also, a lint filter with an invisible coating from fabric sheets can cause an airflow disruption, try running without clothes and the filter removed.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
