Kenmore 500, only 1 year old. Noticed that not much lint was being trapped in screen over several months. When I pulled the vent tube off the back, it was full of lint. I do not see any way that the lint can get around the screen. What is going on? This is concerning from a fire standpoint.

sounds like you may have a blockage in the ventilation. try cleaning out the vent hose and the lint trap area and see if that helps. Also, you may want to wash your lint trap with a brush. If you use fabric softener, it can get clogged up and be unable to be noticed just by looking at it.
The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.
Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.
Yes it could have been the lint igniting in the bottom of your dryer in future clean lint trap after every load and take trap door out and vacumn inside trap at least once a month If you ignore the lint trap you could end up with a serious fire so take care of it when you remove screen a certain amnt of the lint falls down into the bottom of dryer and after time a buildup can ignite.. more serious with a gas dryer as the igniter and burner is at the bottom of most gas dryers
please check your exhaust vent, where the dryer air comes out of the house, this particular pattern is very indicitive of a slow moving exhaust, you may need to clean the duct between the machine and exhaust as well
Luckily, dryers are light. Best thing to do is pull it out until you can remove the back cover. (unplug it first) Then vacuum and clean all the dust and lint you can. This should be a yearly thing at least anyway. Replace the back plug it in and slid it back. I do mine every 6 months or so.
its not too hard to get out. you will need a #2 phillips screwdriver and or a 1/4" socket driver remove lint trap remove 2 screws at lint trap unplug unilt open the top (2 clips between lid and front panel in the crack, push them with a butter knife or putty knife to release top) opens like a hood pull out dryer and pull off rear panel on the left hand side there is a metal duct like thing lol that leads to the lint trap at the top. there should be 4 screws at the bottom where it gets round. remove them, and wiggle the duct open. your pen should be there..
You have a severly blocked vent, its not removing the moisture to the outide but instead getting trapped in vent.reccomned reventing unit with solid duct pipe, not the vynyl flex tubing and mke sure the outside exhaust port is totally free of obstruction a well
