Good Morning Percy, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided you Frigidaire dryer runs for 10 to 15 seconds and then will shut off. It sounds like it could be a possible problem with your thermostat or control panel. A reset may help with any internal miscommunications inside of your dryer. You can reset your dryer by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help your issue I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform an accurate diagnosis on your dryer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.
For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.
You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.
