Can you identify to odor on the clothes?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's a musty, dirt , smell.
Expert:  John replied 10 months ago.

It's most liked caused by mold growing in lint that get by the filter screen, and into the motor and heater area. The front cover panel needs to be removed, and the area vacuumed out with a shopvac. I live in Florida, and the problem is so bad, I have to do this every three months or so.
