Check the venting for your dryer. Most "auto dry" features are controlled by a thermostat that is in line with the timer motor. If you have a gas dryer especially, a clogged or obstructed vent will stall the auto dry feature. If you can provide the complete model number, I can provide more insight.

Dryer will not stop when clothes are dry in auto-sense mode


Try "timed" cycles. If it shuts off on timed it's not the timer. It's more likely it's not cycling on the thermostat due to an airflow problem like the vent. To rule that out (or in) run ONE load through it with the vent disconnected. If it shuts off you'll know where to look

Dryer timer will not advance in any mode.. timed, or auto mode. Dryer works, but will not turn off unless you open door or advance timer. Do I need to replace the timer?


the timer will need to be replaced if it's stuck in the mode as you stated. the timer is built with cog teeth gears that rotate slowly as the timer operates normally. If a cog tooth breaks off the timer is stuck in that position causing your problem here

You may need to replace the timer, but watch the video below and it will walk you thru the troubleshooting process. The timer not moving in the "auto sense" mode maybe due to a bad thermostat. Here is a link to the timer in case you need it.

The energy saver doesn't work so we have to use


Clean and straighten the connecting vent on the rear of the dryer. Check the blower wheel attached to the motor. Make sure it is clear of lint and turning OK.
If the heat does not escape the timer does not advance in auto mode. In the timed mode the clothes steam rather than dry.

Dryer Timer running very slow


1st of all make sure you have 110vac to the timer motor, usually the 2 black wires, if you do and the timer won't advance then you do have a bad motor and you would have to replace the whole timer. If you do not have 110v to the timer motor, try selecting the Timed mode. If it advances in the timed mode then the problem isn't the timer, the problem could be poor air flow( plugged up vent or blower wheel) causing dryer to cycled off of the limit and not the thermistat which is how most auto modes work. Good Luck

Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR7646JQ1 Auto Setting Does Not work


I am thinking the timer has gone bad, They tend to work in some spots, and not others , when they fail. If you can put the dryer in Auto mode, then nudge the timer until you hear the burner light, see if it continues from there. If it does, chances are pretty good it's the timer.
