Dryer model#?

80 series isn't it.

Some model# helps.

**it heats up when you first start it then stops heating **

The coils on the gas valve are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting. If you find a open circuit on one of the gas coils, replace them all = less problems later on.

**I was going to try the coils next . How do I test them I have volt meter?**

They are tested for continuity.

Some meter tips.

... at time of failure.

Unfortunately it can sometimes be tricky to actually catch them being defective when failures are only intermittent.
