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.

Hotpoint tcem80c 6p not drying very quickly

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 !

Not drying well takes more time than usual

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.

Dryer not heating properly

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.

The dryer works and the condenser is clean but no water collects in the tank and things take much longer to dry.

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.

Dryer gets hot but doesn't dry well

Restricted air flow...either vent or wheel that moves the air. Try taking hose off of where it goes outside and just let it run like that and see if clothes dry faster. If so you need vent cleaned.

I have model # eed4300tq0 it takes 3 times longer to dry than it use to. it use to dry in one cycle on high heat,now i have to use high heat 3 times to get completely dry. dryer is only 1 and a half years...

Blocked vent hose . Disconnect the hose from the dryer and dry a load . If dryes ok , check the vent hose and vent . Make sure there is good air blowing out the back .

Dryer not heating Enough

Ceck the vent hose and vent. Make sure these are clear of obstruction. This is tipical of poor venting. The dryer can`t remove the moist air to dry the clothes properly.

Laundry taking too long to dry!

1. Make sure the filter is clean. A clean filter allows for proper air circulation in the dryer.

2. Make sure the rear dryer vent is clean. Move the dryer, unplug it and remove the rear vent hose and clean out any debris from the vent, in the hose and any debris in the outside vent.

Over time, these things get clogged and reduces the air circulation in the dryer, causing it to take longer for the clothes to dry.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
