How do I clean the lint from my Model #110.72952100 gas dryer
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
I assume you are not referring to the lint filter on the top of your dryer.
Behind your dryer is a elongated hot air distribution manifold. Looking from the back of your dryer it is on the left. The manifold is fixed to the back of the dryer with screws. Unscrew the screws and remove the cover.
In the bottom of this manifold is where air flow blockage occurs. Clean this inlet out.
At this location you will not be exposed to any electrical or moving parts.
Cleaning this outlet will enhance the dryer air flow and dryer performance.
My Kenmore gas dryer starts but does not stay on
This is very likely a relay problem. There is a black relay in the control head that engages when the start button is pressed. The relays tend to go bad now and then. They are a simple replacement and cost less than $15 or so.

The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.
The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.
The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.
DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:
If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.
If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.
