Hello, this is Dave. To get clothes to dry properly you need three things to occur. You need heat, tumbling and movement of the air. The one that is almost always the reason for slow drying is the air movement. If it heats and tumbles but the hot moist air can't quickly be moved outside it will be very slow. If you can get to where the vent comes outside you may find there is very little air coming out. A long vent or many bends makes the dryer run too long. I suspect your vent may need to be shortened or just cleaned.
