It's the chore nobody likes to do! But nobody likes a house on fire either.
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.
It might be hard to define what your looking at here. TheGREY MATTER -dust inside the vent of a dryer.

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.
