SOURCE: How to take apart a dryer?
First of all, UNPLUG the dryer if you plan on servicing the inside. There are still dangerous voltages present with the dryer turned off.
Lift the front of the dryer slightly in order to place a block of wood under the front feet (I recommend a couple of small pieces of 2 x 4). This will give you access to the screws without having to hold the machine up at the same time. There should be a couple of torx style screws under the bottom seam of the panel. Remove these screws and the panel should drop down and come off. Sometimes these panels can stick. If this occurs, tap on the side slightly and it shoudl come free. I hope this helps you. If you have any further questions, please post back with your comments.

SOURCE: Dryer won't stay on.
tThe wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. A
thermal fuse is normally in the circuit to the igniter on many gas
dryers. I recommend checking this fuse. On dryer model 11073032102, you
can access this fuse by _unplugging the dryer, shutting off the gas
supply,_ and removing the bottom front service panel as shown in the
second image below. On some Kenmore dryers, you have to remove the back
panel to access the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located on the
blower housing . The third image shows the location
and replacement procedure. To test the thermal fuse, remove at least
one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance
across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure
near zero ohms (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open),
then the thermal fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.NOTE: If
the thermal fuse is blown, check the venting for your dryer. Restricted
exhaust venting can cause the thermal fuse to blow.

My dryer of the same model number had the same issue. The teflon/plastic wear points are worn out or have fallen off. They are about $22.00 plus shipping at the site below. Disconnect the power, lift (with force) the top off at the front of the dryer and you will have access to remove and replace.
