Question about Amana Dryers
You mean ALE643RBW... drew blanks when I first looked and gave up. So... there's no moister sensor for this model. It runs the cycle by the start point of the timer. Its labled "more" dry or "less" dry in some fashion which merely changes the length of the cycle. Simple and dependable but doesn't meet todays "green" requirements.
Most likely it is the timer which lists at ~$170US from Sears. Your dryer has gotta have some years on it so not sure what else it may need in the near future. If you can do repairs yourself, $80 refurb timer on Ebay Otherwise to pay labor and markup... better off with new.

Either the heater element is breaking or is loose and getting only 110V instead of 240V. First I would check the wall outlet with a voltmeter for 240V between Line1 and Line2. Also check the connections and continuity for the heater element.

The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem
