.Two weeks ago I went to clean air ducts in Mansfield Ohio. When I got there the owner said he was nearly cleaning dust bunnies from the floor every day. After carefully cleaning the house ducts and dryer vent I noticed that the new furnace has some return air leaks.
Then I noticed the dryer vent wasn't hooked up correctly. The small particles from the dryer got sucked through the furnace and we ending up in this mans house. Dust bunnies where everywhere! This is because high efficiency furnaces ran the blower motor more often and at a higher volume of air back to the home.
I repaired the air return plenum with clear silicone and DUCK tape for furnaces.
I also fixed the dryer to lint trap to exit without releasing fragments of lint into the basement which ultimately get stuck someone in the home. They are very hard to see until they accumalate.

Cleaning the dryer lint trap. Really it's no big deal when you have nice place to throw away the lint when your reach out and grab it-so soft and fuzzy! It's usually just the lint of towels and cotton clothes that constantly fall apart.
The problem is that when a dryer runs, the moisture that get eliminated with the lint causing the dryer vent to get gummed up! Then the metal and plastic tubes leading to fresh air get full of lint as well. This makes a mess and in some cases leads to a fire inside the dryer vent cavity.
When I opened the back of the dryer up, I placed part of the diffuser on the floor.
If you've been cleaning the lint trap all along, but it takes longer to dry the clothes, the answer is deep inside the dryer.
Here is what a dryer looks like opened up like a factory repair.
