Question about Dryers
You do not state a model or even a manufacturer, but I'll take a stab at this.
If you use manual (or timed dry) setting only, dryer should work fine, but all automatic settings are doing what you describe,..... sounds like the moisture sensor bar need to be cleaned off. They are usually two thin metal strips, about 4 to 6 inches long and a inch or so apart. They are generally located inside the drum, very near the lint filter. What has most likely happened, is that fabric softner sheet use has built up a waxy coating on the bars, preventing them from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees this as a dry load, and just runs the last few minutes of a cool down cycle and turns off. Cleaning the bars should restore your dryer to work in the automatic drying cycles.
