Sounds like your outside vent is plugging up. Go outside your house and check for lint build up and just pull it loose with your fingers or a shop vac.
If it's not obviously plugged from outside, feel the volume it should be significant. If it's very weak (while running of course) your ductwork may be plugged elsewhere, for example at an elbow, or the joint between a flex hose and the actual duct.

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.
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.
4. Moisture Sensor
Most units will have a moisture or dryness sensor as well that will fail. inspect the sensor for faults. replace if necessary.

If the clothes going in don't appear wetter than normal, then it's probably lack of airflow.
Check your dryer venting.. especially directly behind the machine. Pull the machine out and disconnect the 4" duct from the back of the machine and visually check for blockage both in the machine and in the duct work. Use a vacuum hose to remove any debris.
You can also start the machine while it's disconnected from the duct, momentarily to check for proper airflow.
Best of success!
