Maytag Bravos XL MCT dryer overheating?
My Maytag dryer which was bought 4 years ago is overheating and I don't know what is causing it to overheat. The check lint screen light keeps coming on every time I turn on the dryer but I don't know what is causing this to happen. The vent was checked outside to see if it was clogged up but there is no clog to find. I did vaccum up a lot of lint from the bottom of where the screen goes in but the light still keeps coming on every time I turn on the dryer. I checked behind the dryer and it does not seem the back is being crushed. I have an appointment for someone to come out to look at the dryer but it will cost $125 just for the person to make the trip and they can't come out until October 13. Anyone know what is the problem?
I removed lint from the area around the screen and is no longer hot but the "check lint light continues to come on.

sounds like something is blocking the exhaust vent ..............
