I have a vented hoover vhv180 visionHD 8kg. it is taking longer and longer to dry. the hose is well fitted and not kinked and the machine vents well. is there any way i can get to check and possibly clean/clear out the machine of the rubbish that gets past the lint catcher/filter in the door opening
The only way to clean the dryer out would be with a vacuum cleaner and a flexible hose. Cleaning it may help but your problem more than likely isn't lint build up. The gaskets on these dryers wear out pretty quick and don't seal as well as they should. Usually cleaning will help for a little while but it will not solve the problem.

Long Dry times tend to be caused by improper exhaust venting
normal ventng should be 8 to 10 feet long max should be flexible aluminum or solid metal venting if length is longer than 10 ft solid metal venting is a must ! White Vinyl is absolutley NOT advised ! ! make sure venting is as short as possble with no kinks or crushed areas and also you have good air flow out of dryer exhast outlet before connecting venting after connecting make sure you have good air flow at outside of home.........good luck !
Check the exhaust vent hose and complete vent system. If these plug up with lint, often where you cannot see them, it will take longer to dry. A way to test this would be to unhook the dryer vent hose from the wall and vent it into the room and see if that makes any difference. Be blessed.
More often When you experience a problem like this with your dryer it is becouse of a clogged dryer vent hose or the vent in the wall. Disconet your dryer vent hose from the dryer to see if it will dry properly. Then you will know if the dryer or the vent. http://www.on-timeappliance.com/dryerrepair.html
I'm not sure what your saying when you talk about the condenser on a dryer. Without a model number I'll have to guess your talking about a clothes dryer. All dryers have a cycling thermostat. If this is a regular clothes dryer, either this will be the problem or your vent hose is clogged. What sounds like is happening is something is cutting the heat off prematurely therefore it takes to long to dry the clothes. If the vent is clogged, it can't get rid of the air and this will cause the dryer to short cycle. The cycling thermostat will also cause this when it gets weak. I hope this helps but I'm not sure we are even talking about the same thing. Sorry.
Sounds like the moist air is not being properly vented. Your dryer has a fan that pulls in dry air and expells the moist air. This is vented thru your dryer hose and should be vented to the outside of your home. Sometimes the hose will get either a blockage or a partial blockage that will make it either not dry your clothes or take longer than it should. I have seen hoses that have a sag collect water much the way your trap will under a sink. You can either throughly clean the hose, and check for a blockage in the hose or the dryer itself, or you may, as a test, disconnect the hose temporarily and vent your dryer into an old pair of panty hose. When you turn the dryer on, the panty hose should inflate. Also make sure you keep your lint trap clean...EVERY LOAD.
