Whirpool dreyer not heating up

Hi,
I have a Whirlpool gas dryer that tumbles, but doesn't get hot.
I replaced the ignitor. This new ignitor also does not glow. I checked for current going to the ignitor and there wasn't any. There is current going into and out of the timer control. What causes this problem and what part(s) need to be replaced.
Thanks

Check for continuity along thermal fuse (back of unit) - had the exact same problem on our dryer and that solved it. It's a non resettable fuse - once it blows, it needs to be replaced.

Looks something like this:
