Gas will come on when dryer starts . But it will not come on again, dryer continues to run but no heat.

Most likely cause is one of the solenoids on the gas valve is defective. Check into the archives in this forum regarding dryer problems. Posted to help others with this same problem you'll find directions regarding removing/testing and installing new solenoids.

You may also have a restricted exhaust vent.

Good Luck,
