Question about Dryers
When we dry clothes or towels water builds up in the door jamb and the clothes have difficulty drying. Lint trap is clean and there are no kinks in the outlet hose. Any idea why the water (condensation) is accumulating in the door space>
Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
You have a definite air flow obstruction. To prove this, temporarily disconnect the vent tube from your dryer and run a normal load of clothes through a cycle.( You can place an old nylon stocking over your dryer vent outlet temporarily). If it dries normally then you will need to investigate your venting situation a little further. You don't describe any abnormal sounds, but a faulty blower in the dryer could also cause low/no air flow, so if you do not acheive any favorable results after the vent test, look at the blower next.
Side Note: If you use fabric sheets in the dryer, an invisible sheen can coat the lint filter, slowing airflow. To test this, run your filter under running water,(horizontally), and if it retains the water, replace the filter and avoid using fabric sheets.

Tips for a great answer:
If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
