Question about Dryers
The igniter heats the thermocouple which, in turn, opens the gas valve. The igniter could be on its way to failure because it is not staying energized long enough to heat the thermocouple. The thermocouple could be defective as well.

Probably a high limit fuse. Check on the burner shroud for a 2 wire thermos. They should have little resistance. If so replace. If they are open, check for a restricted vent. Remove front panel and clean out area below filter.

It sounds like an air flow issue. There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. If the venting is not sucking the flame down the tube it will cycle very quickly and never reach the right temp.

The machine will check all safety features first. check the overlimit by the burner. It may have a reset. If not, turn power off and check continuity (ohms). Good luck.
