If you're in an FLA that has an animation, and you choose File/Export/Export Animated GIF..., do you not see the same animation in the dialog that appears? There are play controllers in the lower right, where you can also set whether it will loop forever.
Assuming that works, if you click the Preview button in the lower left, do you then get a browser window that is showing the animation?
If you do you can either just drag that graphic to your desktop, or back in Animate you can click the Save button in the bottom right of the dialog.
Let us know at which stage something fails.
It doesn't work at the very first option - the export dialog. I see the player controls but there is no more than a single frame so nothing to animate and the browser preview just displays this static frame.
I have an animation as a movie clip symbol which is placed on the stage in a single frame - this doesn't export as an animation. If I open up the movie clip symbol to expose the timeline and layers and do the same thing I'm again presented with just one frame.
I've tried selecting all the frames and setting the editing markers to encompass the entire timeline but still - one frame.

The feature is for exporting the main timeline, if you put your movieclip animation into the main timeline, it should export ok.
SWF appears to work because it's looping the timeline, and the movieclip progresses.
