If you install a 30A 240V GFI breaker will this be ok or will the cycles the dryer has prematurely fail the breaker?

I suspect you mean GFIC breaker. The dryer will not cause the breaker to fail.

Don't understand this question. If the breaker is on, then the dryer would function normally, if the breaker your are referring to is the one for the dryer. If the breaker is off then no function. A dryer runs on 220.

Yes, you can. Don't forget to also convert the stove BREAKER to a dryer BREAKER (otherwise your dryer can someday fry well before the breaker trips).

The dryer tripped the breaker. Have it repaired. Don't try to use it again. You could cause a fire.

If your breaker box will accept tandom breakers you can remove 4 single pole breakers add 2 tandoms this will empty 2 spaces for your 2 pole 30 amp for the dryer
