Does the dryer heat at all? turn you dryer on for about 1 minute then open the door, any heat? yes= check to be sure you venting is good and clear. if good then you have 2 common issues i would check first. the thermal fuse could be blown or the gas valve coils could be bad. give me you model number and i can give you more suggestions of what to check and how

check thermostat first (it have about 5-8 of them inside) check on continues. if this all of them fine, the you have to check heater on continues too.
also if this is electric dryer check if you have 240v in power outlet.
all of this involve some kind of experience with electricity do you should be careful or ask professionals www.appliancesrepairla.com

SOURCE: the dryer heat is not
it could be a hi or low thermistor or a run relay or the heater itself. All these parts you are able to check by conducting continuity tests on each piece, make sure the unit is unplugged when you conduct this test using a multimeter. Which ever piece showed having no continuity would be the one that was at fault make sure you also unplug one of the wires off each piece that you are conducting the test to or your test would be inaccurate if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future I await any further reply
p.s if this is a whirlpool or kenmore dryer i would first check the run relay found behind the rear panel of the machine Thanks again Rick

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

First you have to determine whether you element is in the front or the back of the machine this is done easiest by looking at the front of the machine and seeingif its one complete piece or two. If its one, the element is in the back, if two its in the front. We'll start if its in the back first. Tools you'll need is: 1/4 nut driver or drill with 1/4 adapter and a multimeter with ability to check continuity. With the machine unplugged, remove the back cover of the dryer. Once done, the heating element will be located on the right hand side with two fuses on the housing of the element. Test the element and each fuse seperatly by removing the wires and checking for continuity on each component. All parts should show continuity, so if one doesn't its bad and needs to be replaced. Now if the element is the front everything is the same with the exception of you have to remove the lower portion, usually held on by 3-4 screws located underneath.
