There are two types of systems used for "automatic" clothes drying. One uses a moisture detector to stop the timer advance until the exhaust air drops below a "set point" of moisture content. The other system uses an additional thermostat to delay timer operation and that thermostat cannot reach its "set point" as long as the moisture content is too high.

If this is a new dryer it should be covered under warranty.
