1.  Check the tension on the belt pulley.
2.  Check the belt. If it is worn, replace it.
3.  Check the felt around the front of drum (if applicable). Again, if too worn, replace it.
4.  If there is a chirping sound too, check the drum's roller bearings (the look like little wheels. The may need to be replaced too.

Most of these fixes are relatively inexpensive, and parts can be found at your local appliance parts store. (Given the date of this posting, I hope someone else helped prior to me...)

Dryer works fine on timed cycle does not work on auto


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

My amana LE9207w2 has been taking longer and longer to dry the clothes. I clean out the vent regularly... when I use it a lot, it shuts down for hours. Now it stopped altogether with wet clothes insid


First the dryer vent should never go out of the roof thats just asking for trouble. The dryer has to work harder to get the air out. any lint that would be in the vent when the dryer shuts off just comes back down instead of being blow outside. there is probably a buildup of lint around the exit pipe on the roof. As far as your problem either you have a bad motor or there is something stuck in your blower wheel. the best way to check this is to reach inside your dryer and try to turn the drum. If your drum spins freely then hold the door switch and push the start button keep holding the door switch the dryer will be buzzing now turn the drum if it starts to go after you push the drum then you have a bad motor. If the drum does not spin freely then you probably have something stuck in your blower wheel

Any advice my dryer is not working anymore it will not dry the clothes


The most common problem would be a restricted vent. Turn the dryer on and go outside to the vent outlet. Air flow must be fairly strong. If not, clean vent piping and eliminate as much flex ducting as possible. You want the shortest, straightest, smoothest (inside) vent possible. If air flow is strong, clean the two silver bars inside the dryer drum near the lint filter with some rubbing alcohol. If you still have problems, send an "ask me" note with as much info about your symtoms and what you have tried so far. ie: is there any heating? are the clothes unusually wet before going into dryer? has this situation come on slowley or suddenly? are your clothes drying very slowley, or not at all? does the dryer run for hours, or does it stop?
