Question about Dryers
Check to make sure your moisture vent at the back of the dryer(big metal flex hose) is not crushed. If it is ok the remove it and see if it is plugged with lint. If it is clear there may be a restriction in your vent pipe that goes thru the wall to the outside. The problem is if the moisture vent system is plugged the clothes will get hot but take a long time to dry due to the humidity is not released from the dryer. Using this dryer for a long period of time like this could damage the dryer from constant overheating. They make a kit to clean out the pipe that goes to the outside. You can buy it at a ny home improvement store.

You need to make sure your exhaust is not kinked or clogged up any. If the dryer does not have good air flow, it will not dry good.
Best way to check this is to remove the exhaust line from the back and dry some cloths with it off.

with a gas dryer in which your assured te hventing is free and clear of any obstructions, i would look to replace the coil pack located atop the gas valve itself, probably about $25 part number 279834... 2 coils simply mount atop the valvle

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.
