Remove your vent hose from the dryer and run it to see if the problem is still there, as a blocked house vent can cause the burner to short cycle.  But I suspect if it comes on and lights, then cycles off and does not relight when it clicks and the igniter glows, I would guess the coils on top of the gas valve have gotten weak and need to be replaced, as they will not open the second chamber in  the gas valve if they are bad or going bad.

Yes the 2 coils on top of the gas valve.  You might have a gas valve going bad but that is not the norm, usually it is the coils getting weak that open the gas vvalve.  Not really expensive so worth a try??   Pegi

Don't skimp on the dryer vent disconnect test that Pegi instructed you on.  If that doesn't cure it, then you need new valve coils.
