Check and make sure there is not lint build-up in the venting hose leading to outside. This will cause longer drying times and can be a fire hazard. Also, if you use the Aluminum venting hose instead of the white plastic it can cut up to 30 min. off your drying time. It is a lot safer then the white venting hose which can also be a fire hazard. Make sure all the lint is cleaned out from the inside of the dryer where the venting hose is connected. It could be a clog there. This sounds more like the problem since the clothes are actually drying but it could be a partially burnt out heating element. Good Luck.

Check the following to address this issue--
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

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.
