A:

If the ignitor glows then the timer and thermostats are okay.  If the ignitor glows brightly then clicks off but there is no flame the gas valve or gas coils are likely at fault.  The key to the problem is knowing what the ignitor is doing.  Ignitor are very fragile and must be handled with care.  Even touching the glow bar part of the ignitor with your fingers can cause early failure. 

If the ignitor glows and clitcks off but there is no flame then the coils or valve will be at fault.  You can reply below with any additional details or questions for further assistance.  On this model the valve and coils come together as one piece for approximately $97 dollars.

I hope this information is helpfu.  You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance. 

You can also have the problem repaired in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Dryer Repair.
