You will need and know how to use a voltmeter here to solve this. Post back if you are so equipped.

Take the bottom panel off and see if the igniter glows when you start a heated cycle. If it does not then unplug the igniter and see if you get 120 volts or so at the wire harness end when the dryer is calling for heating.
If you have the 120 volts then the igniter is bad.
Post back if you do not have the 120 for the next step.

See if the thermal fuse is open on the side of the burner tube and also check the one on top of the tube as well- it should measure closed. Replace if either is open.
