Post Kenmore Elite HE4 gas dryer won't stay lit

Our Kenmore gas dryer won't stay lit for more than a few seconds at a time unless I disconnect the vent hose from the wall. We already paid someone to come out and clean the vent pipe that runs to the roof. Also, I cleaned out the air passageways inside the dryer. Any suggestions of where to start would be greatly appreciated. I do have tools, a multimeter and some electronics knowledge. Thank you, Brett

You still have a vent problem. The reason dryer keeps stopping is with vent blocked the dryer overheats and shuts the gas off. You may have to replace vent if not a hard medal one.
