Question about Amana NGD7200TW Gas Dryer
Very common problem. You need to call a duct cleaning company and tell them to clean your dryer vent. Rule-of-thumb: dryer vents should be cleaned every couple of years to prevent them from being clogged with lint and causing lint fires. This is definitely your problem. Good luck :)
p.s. one way to verify a clogged vent is to go outside where the vent exits the house and feel the air-flow. should have adequate air-flow.

Please take a look at the following link. In particular, the first major paragraph where it discusses proper ventilation:
I know the link is for a dryer that no longer heats, but if a dryer is left in a condition where it is starved for air, the heating circuits will actually over-heat and eventually fail. You need to ask yourself when was the last time you inspected or cleaned the dryer exhaust ventilation. If you can't remember, or if you've never cleaned anything before, it may be a good time to do so. Most dryer heat related problems are caused by poor ventilation and lack of cleaning. I recommend that you clean the dryer ducting twice a year. That's once in the spring, and once again in the fall. It is also important to note that the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the exhaust vent line is, the BETTER. The more bends and kinks that you put in the dryer exhaust, the more resistance you create for the dyrer blower, and the more potential choke points you create where lint can accumulate and clog. Not to mention, this can also cause a fire hazard and/or a habitat for rodents.
Follow the recommended advice and try drying a load of clothes with the vent hose removed, first. If your clothes dry faster like they should, you may have an exhaust clog somewhere. If your clothes still aren't drying correctly, inspect the interior blower fan housing for obstructions. This is all explained in the link provided.
If you attempt these preliminary measures and still have problems, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.

based on your description, you may have one of several problems but the prime suspect would be a restrictive exhaust system. Check and make sure you don't have a blockage in your vent system all the way from the dryer to the exit point. When cycling, you should have a fairly robust air flow at the exit outside. If you don't, then you may have a blockage in your vent, something restricting the blower from operating at 100% or lastly a poor flame from your gas system. Air movement is the key thou so I would focus on that since you didn't state that the dryer wasn't heating up.

Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

Hello & Welcome to FixYa If everything else in the dryer is working fine and it won't heat so it means that the thermal fuse which is located inside the rear panel on the blower wheel housing is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
