Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer
I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermostat that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if bad replace it as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then check the dryer belt and idler pulley...Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi and welcome to FxYa, I am Kelly.
Without your model number this is a generic response. This is caused most of the time by a cycle thermostat but can also be caused by a moisture sensor depending upon your model number.
The cycle thermostat will have one of the following numbers on the label"
L130 - 10F
L130 - 15F
L135 - 10F
L135 - 15F
L140 - 10F
L140 - 15F
Examples of thermostats can be seen here:
Again without a model number this the best I can do for you at the moment as the thermostats are different sizes and in different locations depending on the model number.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The timer may be faulty.
Servicing the Timer
Most dryer timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the dryer. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.
Step 1: Unplug the dryer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.
Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the dryer. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

See if the timer advances in the timed dry or the auto dry cycles. If the timer advances in timed dry but not in auto dry, then you could have a wire connection failure in the orange wire from the heating element to the timer.
If the timer will not advance in either type of cycle, then I recommend checking the timer part number that you are using.
