A:

The wiring diagram in the 1st image below has the 4 most likely cause of the no heat problem circled. You will need a meter to check these parts. The key to determining why a gas dryer is not heating depends on what the ignitor is doing. If the ignitor is glowing and there is no heat then the problem is likely the gas valve or gas coils. If the ignitor doesn't glow then the temperature switch or thermostats are likely to blaem. I suggest first you check if the ignitor is glowing. The 2nd image will help you remove the front panel so you can see if the ignitor is glowing. Remember to unplug the dryer first. The dryer can be run with the front panel removed.
