Kenmore 90 Series Gas dryer does not ignite

My gas dryer does not ignite, about 3 weeks ago my dryer was not heating very well. So on my day off from work I opened the bottom comparment of dryer and noticed a large amount of lint inside and all around blower. I cleaned all lint out and put everything back together . It would take 3 hours to dry a load,but after I cleaned all the lint out. Now my dryer was working,drying loads very quick. Today I got home from work and my wife told me ,dryer was not heating. I opened the bottom compartment and I noticed there was no flame.

I like to get some advice on how to fix it

Thank you

Please post a model # We can tell you where things are and help better. A couple of things to check. Thermo fuse, Hi limit thermostat, ignitor and flame sensor. All should have continuity. If you had a dryer full of lint you need to clean out the vent tube to the outside. I wound check the thermo fuse first.
