Sensor has wax buildup on it Dryer thinks clothes is dry. Shuts down. Get busy cleaning the sensor strips with windex or 409 The strips are located inside the dryer below the filter on most models. The way it works is wet clothes rub the sensor strips which discharges a capacitor on the dryness sensor board. As long as the capacitor is being discharged from the wet clothes the control knows to keep on a truckin. if no moisture is sensed then the capacitor will achieve a full charge and the control will proceed to end of cycle after a cool down period. Clean the sensor bars and party on.

After the dryer shuts off (automatic cycle) clothes are still somewhat damp. wondering if there is a monitor or dampness gauge that is dirty?

There may be.Look inside the drum. The dampness sensor looks like two metal strips a few inches long. Try to clean them with a cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol. Dryer sheets can leave a residue on them that causes them to read wrong. Good luck.

My frigidaire dryer will not dry properly( still damp) in automatic mode

Depending on how damp they are, it could be normal or you could have a plugged dryer vent. I say that because on these dryers, the software in the control is programed to leave cloths a little damp in the sensor dry. This is for energy efficiency and less shrinking on clothing. If they are coming out to damp and you need to run them through two cycles to dry them, then the vent is plugged, either in the dryer or the house, and needs cleaned out. When the vent is plugged, the moisture isn't getting out, and the cloths will not dry.
