** Speed Queen [gas dryer] model number AGM42W2 **

I'm afraid I do not have access to parts listings for that brand to look up how it was designed.

** My gas dryer doesn't heat up **

A first step in trying to diagnose heating problems in gas dryers is usually to look to see what the gas burner's ignitor is actually doing. Depending on if it IS or is NOT glowing different tests would then be required.

** I was told the Ignitor **

That is only one possibility. There are lots of others depending on the exact symptom details.

You can read about how the electronic ignition burner of most domestic gas dryers operate at the following link. It should give you some idea of the components that might need further testing.
