First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

most of the time your complaint is the home owners house venting.run a load with the venting detached[it wont hurt a thing] if ok then must clean venting till dried as well as with out venting.if still long dry times first must make sure air ways in dryer are clean[should have good air flow at back if hand held there] and may need to remove front to clean lint filter area.and inspect blower ,making sure mounted to shaft and not worn in the center[blower key way, inside the hole where motor shaft goes thru blower]you dryer only has one element so if you have heat its heating.if you did all above and have problem still can be electronic[thermostats,timers etc........but i have fixed 1000s of dryers and their having problems are rarer.i hope that helps God bless ,tom

Has air flow problem, check to make sure the vent going to the outside is not blocked. If it isnt, you should be able to take off back cover of dryer. Should be a duct that air goes through, take it apart and make sure there is no lint in bottom of it. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

First thing I would do is clean from screen filter all the way out. I would clean and vacuum all the dust in the vent.
If problem still persists, I would have the heating element replaced

How is the filter and exhaust pipe? Have you cleaned them recently? I think your machine has a clog somewhere between the filter and the outside vent hood.
Pull your machine away from the wall, remove the pipe ... if it is plastic, please consider replacing it with a metal one. Metal will not burn. Vacuum the pipe end to end - then check the flapper outside ... is it clogged? clean it.
