Pull vent off
Pull bottom panel down so you can see the burner assembly
Put the dryer on TIMED DRY 50 Minutes and start dryer
Now what's supposed to happen you should see the ignitor glow and then a click and the gas should come ....If it does good let it run and heat up and then it should cycle back off again ... and then repeat the same thing over
Now however many cycles it takes if you see the ignitor glows again and it just fades to dark ........ just change the valve coils on the dryer.
If the heat never comes back on also check to 2 wires to the ignitor for voltage if you dont have 115 volts change the radiant sensor sometimes the radiant sensors screw up and you will get 28 volts because the contacts on the radiant sensor are pitted.....
It actaully sounds like you have more of a valve coil issue ... I dont get that many t-stats that are intermittent... So start with this and see how you make out first
