Thanks Built1950 for your answer. It worked partly. It seems that the draft from the wind outside the vent is blowing into the dryer once it stops and because of the difference in the dryer temperature and the draft, condensation occurs which leaves the clothes damp. Is there any way to fix this, like a valve etc or do you think i am incorrctly diagnosing the problem.
i replaced the vent terminal but the clothes still do not dry as expected. they do dry better than earlier. any tips ?
I was on a service call and found this problem...even after I suggested the customer check the venting/dryer air ducts/lint filter before we look at the dryer. "Everything is good" is what they told me..... guess again.....this is what I found.....

Not much air flow through that grill. Looks to be approx 1/2 plugged :-(
