Question about Dryers
If you experience heavy condensation inside the dryer, and have lint accumulating inside the drum, you have a clog somewhere in your exhaust ducting. Since this is a recently purchased (new?) dryer, I'm assuming the clog is EXTERNAL to the dryer.
A quick test that you can try to determine where the problem may be is to remove the exhaust ducting from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a normal load of wash. If the air flow from the back of the dryer is forceful and warm (about 140 degrees F), and the clothes dry normally, the problem isn't the dryer. The problem is in the ducting from the point where it leaves the dryer to where it exits your home. If this is the case, you will need to inspect the entire length of the ventilation to ensure there are no kinks, clogs, sags, or significant bends that can cause choke points for lint to accumulate. If left in this condition, the dryer will eventually overheat to the point of failure.
If the air is weak and hardly moving at all, you will need to inspect your air blower assembly inside the dryer to ensure the fan is not obstructed and the ducting is not clogged.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Check out how you have the dryer vented to the outside. When venting the dryer to the outside, you should use a rigid metal vent pipe, since this is the safest and most efficient way to vent the dryer, Back pressure is the enemy when venting the dryer. Check to make sure that your vent hose is not collapsed or kinked and make sure that you go outside and make sure that the vent hood flapper on the outside of the house is not stuck closed. I think it is a venting problem because of the condensation that you mentioned. The air inside the drum is saturated with water vapor from the warm wet clothes, and the way that water vapor is supposed to be gotten rid of is through the dryer vent. So please check these things out and I sure hope it helped you. Good luck and good drying.
