Watched a couple of youtube videos about gas dryer repair.The Igniter, thermo fuse,and thermostat are the common causes of no heat. Ohmed the outlet duct fuse in back of the dryer it had continuity.This usually only opens when the duct is plugged with lint,and overheats. Checked continuity of the igniter. No continuity.Advise to check it first. Removed the igniter,and found the heating element had broken. Replaced igniter,and dryer now heats.
