Fixed myself after talk with parts counter guy. One of the gas valve coils fails when they warm up. Repair kit comes with both.
1.) Unplug dryer. 2.) Remove dryer front panel. 3.) Remove the two screws on the coil hold down bracket. 4.) Slide one up and off. Then the other. Don't mix them up, one has two wires in slide connector, the other has three. 5.) Reinstall coil hold down bracket and front panel.
Fixed my problem. My cost was $17.00+tax. My part #279834.

Timers cannot be repaired. The mechanism is a spring - once it weakens, or fails - a new timer is required.
CLICK HERE for your part.
It is $83.72 USD.
Here is a Buy-it-Now eBay auction for $34.99USD & Free shipping!!
Your part number for the timer is 3976570a
A used part would have to come from an appliance store that salvaged from an abandoned washer.... and it may fail shortly anyway.
The new timer will have a warranty, and give you 10 more years of service.
Well worth it.

Hi, First thing you want to check is the 4" vent that goes to the outside. Make sure that it is clear of lint and that it is no pinched or kinked at all. Is this electric or gas dryer and what model is it?

SOURCE: dryer working but no heat
Your dryer has two separate fuses, one to turn the drum, and one to heat it. It sounds like you have a broken fuse. Unless this is a new installation, then you need to make sure you have the proper electric cord attached. If it's mistakenly connected with a range cord, it won't supply enough power to the dryer.

Sound like the therm switch under back cover. They are small round and silver with wire on each side, also one is white around 2 inches long with wire attached to each side. check with a tester to see if good, if not jump from one side of wire to other, plug dryer back in and turn on, if it works change switch, this should solve your problem, cheap easy fix.
