how long is dryer vent run ? does it go up or out to the side ? Sounds like the dryer vent is clogged. A long run on your vent will also cause this problem with a small amount of lint. Try cleaning out your lint screen on the dryer vent they can get pretty caked up with lint. If you have a long dryer vent run post back the length and direction and I will get you the maximum length for your specific run. You may need a booster fan if it is excessively long or straight up as through the roof.

SOURCE: Doesn't Dry Thoroughly
if you have not already you need to clean out your vent hose. if you have a bunch of lint build up in the hose or in the blower wheel of the dryer it won't move air through the dryer that needed to dry.

If your dryer is still heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:
The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will actually take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter than usual in many cases as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information is helpful.
NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat failure.
