This could be a problem with the operating thermostat or the air flow may be restricted. A good check will be to disconnect the vent hose behind the dryer and dry a load of clothes. If it works ok, the vent will need to be cleaned out. You can also check the air temperature coming out of the dryer. It should heat up to approx. 150 degrees and cycle off, then cycle on again at approx. 135 degrees. This is on the normal cycle. If it's not cycling at these temps, the thermostat will need to be replaced.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

gas dryer model #wgd5500sq0 runs but wont heat

A:

The igniter is likely okay since it glows. Based on your symptom and details all you need to do is replace the solenoid coils on top of the gas valve. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red for 15-20 seconds then it fades off without any burner ignition, replace the coils on the gas valve. Order the coil kit part#27934 which will include both coils for $21.85. I don't think you need to spend $101.59 on a new gas valve assembly when replacing the coils will repair your dryer. I also added the wiring diagram in the image below. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer.
