First check the white plastic thermofuse on the vent housing, reference #6 in this breakdown, if this is open it kills the heat circuit on the gas dryers if the air flow from the dryer is blocked to the outside.  If it tests good on your ohm meter check the igniter on the gas valve assy, as it could be broken.

Your igniter is reference # 4 in this breakdown, located on the side of the gas valve assy.  If both of these parts test good we can go further with instructions.

Yes, that is correct.  Be sure to remove the wires from the fuse and un-plug the ignitor to test them and this is with the dryer un-plugged also..
