we have a dryer that vents our our ROOF!! -- Made sure we cleaned the lint trap -- bought the cleaning kit, with the flat hose you can run down the hole for lint trap, took the vent hose off the back and vaccuummed from the back as well.  Then went on roof to check the vent there.  Seems to be fine.

Dryer is heating really well -- blister on my finger from the back of the drum to prove it -- The load is not too big, but here we are 2 hours after starting the load, and they are still not dry??  Any ideas??

that would indicate an air-flow issue ...

disconnect the Vent at the back of the Dryer and see if it dries better .. ...

Thank you so much guys -- I will have DH take the drum off tomorrow and see if there are any more places that lint could be hiding -- I read on another post a guy took his off and found an area that he pulled two 6-gallon dry vac loads out -- that is a LOT of lint -- I know it is hiding somewhere!! Will post when I find it!! Thank you again!!
