Fischer Paykel dryer - exhaust smell on clothes


I noticed my dryer is getting slower and the last two weekends the clothes ahve come out of the dryer smelling like exhaust. I cleaned the vent to outside and took the back off and cleaned the wheel, but neither looked bad. What should I do next?

I would not use it again untill you figure it out. 1400 house fires are caused every years from dryer fires.
Did you remove the whole hose and clean it or just the outside part?
Is there any kinks in the hose?
There make a special brush for cleaning out the area where the lint trap is.
