Your vent is propably restricted with lint. Have entire dryer vent system cleaned. Make sure first that the dryer is blowing ok by taking hose off back of dryer. If air comes out dryer without hose attached but no air out vent when hose is attached then the vent hose or duct work in house is clogged.
check the angle on the vent hose on the back of the machine and the vent flap hoodie thing outside also the vent hose should not exceed 11 feet. I had this problem and replaced the springy plastic covered vent hose with a rigid aluminum one and still have to check from time to time to make shore the hose is clear where it attaches to the machine. The lint from the extreme spin on the axxis washer is very fine and slightly damp it binds like paper mache.
First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .
Go to a hardware store and ask for a dryer hook-up kit. You can run the vent to an outside source through a wall or if needed you can exit the exhaust through a roof although I would not do this unless it was the last resort. Instructions for the dryer hook-up are included with the materials.
It consist of connecting a vent hose usually 4 inches to the dryer outlet and running the hose usually a flex hose to another outlet that vents the dryer air outside. The outside connection should have a door that closes when the dryer is not in use to keep rodents and pest out.
Doubt this has anything to do with the drum replacement. Your model has an independent variable speed blower motor (not linked to the motor which turns the drum) and speeds up when it senses a vent restriction. You may have a problem with the vent motor or blower wheel, or just a vent restriction issue.
The vent hose/pipe should be as short as possible to vent the dryer outdoors. If it is too long, cut it to the needed length. Also check the inside of the entire pipe to make sure there is not lint piled up in it. Finally check inside the back of the dryer where the vent pipe attaches to be sure it is clear, and the vent outside the house to make sure it is clear and not blocked.
I removed the deflector and duct from outside the house, disconnected the hose, attached the hose to the dryer, passed the hose through the wall as the dryer went back in, then reattached the hose to the duct/deflector and reinstalled the duct/deflector
You don't say how much fluff is escaping, but some things to check are -
1) That the lint screen is fully seated into the top of the dryer vent 2) All the way to where it discharges the house, is clean and free of restriction 3) Check that the dryer door gasket and lint screen cover gasket's are in good condition and do not allow air leakage.
Make certain the flex duct leading from the back of the dryer is connected tightly to the dryer and the vent duct, and make sure the flex duct is not split or broken.
you would need to remove screws holding on the door as well as the opposing screws , after remove th edoor the front "u shaped" panel will pull foward and off, yo may be able to acess the venting from this point
