Burner will show a flame for 20 or 30 seconds then go out, after a while it will come on again and do the same thing. Is there a way to check the flame sensor?

Hi my dryer heats up sometimes but not other times. Today I let it run for 20 min with no clothes in it on what was supposed to be a 40 min high heat cycle. The first 10 min it got hot and I saw the blue flame come on through the front peep hole. But the last 10 min I didn't see the blue flame come on anymore and the dryer got cold. From what I have read, the thermal fuse does not seem to be the problem; otherwise the dryer would not heat up at all if the fuse was bad. I am thinking I need to replace the igniter but please let me know if I am wrong and its something else. Thanks.
