It smelled like it was an internal leak.
Gas smell is unmistakeable, but the same no matter where it comes from - best bet is to rip 'er open and start by soaping all of the visible piping joints without dryer running and also see if the orifice in the valve is obstructed

the Gas Safety Valve may have rusted, or critters got inside .

Did you replace the flexible gas line AND fittings? It clearly states on the Danger label that the line or fittings are NOT to be reused. Also, there should be NO TEFLON TAPE, SEALER, PLASTIC CEMENT, MARMALADE, SILICONE SEALER, PEANUT BUTTER, MARGARINE, OR DENTURE GLUE on the flared surface seat. Sealer is meant for tapered threads only, and not for the flared fitting seal. This is also clearly stated on the label.
Yes RegUS_PatOff is correct that there may be an obstruction preventing the gas valve from sealing properly (rust, dirt, usw...).
