So the dryer is designed to turn on and off throughout the cycle and that is normal. How long the gas turns on really depends on how many clothes are inside and how wet they are. 10 seconds without any wet cloths in the dryer is fairly normal. What you will want to do if it doesn't seam like the dryer is drying well is disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and make sure you have air flow out the back of the dryer. Often times on this dryer the blower wheel belt falls off under the drum and then no air is blowing out the back of the dryer. If you have air blowing out the back of the dryer and you run a test cycle without the vent connected and the drying is still poor, then I would replace the 2 black gas coils in front of the igniter because on gas dryers they tend to get weak and will shut the gas valve off early when they are not supposed to.
