I have an Electrolux Wave-Touch electric dryer, model

I have an Electrolux Wave-Touch electric dryer, model #EWHED65HSS. 3-months ago I began to get an error message during drying saying "Dryer Vent Blocked", with the dryer stopping and beeping continuously. The clothes were not dried completely. I called a reputable vent cleaning company who I felt did a very thorough job, pulling the dryer out, using vent scrubbers and vacuum suction from the base straight up to the roof vent. They also went on the roof to make sure the roof vent was working properly, and disassembled, cleaned and vacuumed the dryer unit completely. Then installed a new vent tube and re-assembled. Everything seemed fine, but after they left, the dryer started giving the same message of Dryer Vent Blocked.I then called my appliance repair service, who came out and replaced the electronics, including the front panel. Again, everything seemed to work while they were here, but shortly after the same message appeared. I called the appliance service again, at which point they came out, measured the dryer compartment temperature with the vent line connected and disconnected, and said that the dryer vent had back pressure and was therefore plugged. I again had the vent service back out, and they completed the entire process once again, all the way to the roof vent, and assured me there was no blockage. They also put a new, shorter flexible vent pipe attachment in to be sure there was no crimping in the flow path.The dryer now works better, but I still get an occasional "Dryer Vent Blocked" message, shutdown and beeping, particularly if I restart the same load to further dry or re fluff. The dryer does dry a lot better now on the first pass.Any thoughts on next step?

Dryer cuts the cycle short so clothes do not get fully dry

Everything works like it should, but cuts the cycle short so the clothes do not get fully dry. Changed the "wetness" sensor by the door but did not change anything.I have not tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours. I'll try that next.I do have a spare wiring harness and sensors from a salvaged machine. Should I need any of it, control board also?
