Must be past the filter-problems in the duct work and hoses. get one of the refrigerator cleaning brushes from the hardware store and a duct cleaning kit, or a rope and rag. clean out the dryer ducting, & hoses as good as you can and check the outside exhaust port. Sometimes these have trap doors that become stuck from old age, even though ductwork is relatively clean. problems can also exist after the filter but before the dryers exhaust port in the back try to clean that out as well.
The hose is probably off of the dryer in the back....the lint should be exhausting outside and not into the room...they will always throw lint even with the lint filter in the dryer...
look for where the exhaust hose is unhooked at...
If the clothes are coming out wet and hot after the first cycle then there is a blockage in the exhaust. This blockage could be at the lint trap or at the exhaust tube leaving from the back of the dryer. You need to check the lint filter area by removing the lint filter and with a flashlight look into the area where the lint filter was to see if there is any build up of lint. If so, you will need to clean this area. Also at the back of the dryer there is a hose that comes from the dryer to an outlet to the out side. This hose could be clogged with lint or possibly kinked to where the proper amount of air flow is not allowed to leave the dryer therefore causing the clothes to have to dry longer. Check these two areas first before going any further due to these checks are simple and may solve the problem.
My suggestion would be to make sure that the lint-filter and the exhaust flex hose are removed and cleaned. If you have the plastic type flex-hose, be aware that these can heat up and catch fire. Be sure to also check the exhaust port coming out of the dryer (that the flex hose attaches to); make sure that there is nothing obstructing the air flow, if there is, then clear & clean and try to restart. If not, I would call a service company...
