Question Whirlpool Gas Dryer - Burner lighting sporadically

My 10-year old Whirlpool gas dyer (model LGQ8858HQ0) isn't drying properly. The burner seems to light early in the drying process but then goes out. I can see the glow plugs trying to relight the burner but then it doesn't relight or does so very sporadicallly. Want to fix instead of buying a new dryer. Any suggestions?

Replace the gas coils. They warm up and than open.
