Answer: 
There is also a problem on some models that have to long of screws holding a sensor that can tear off the felt seal on your lent screen. If the lent seal is damaged, look in the slot and down about 2” in the middle. These can easily be changed one at a time with shorter screws. I had the extended warranty, but it is a design flaw. They should replace your lint trap, at the least for free.

Are there any recalls on the lint trap for this dryer ?

There is a screw that rubs against the felt "seal" on the lint trap and causes it to tear loose and excess lint escapes and builds up.

Answer: 
Something is seriously wrong! That tells me you have no exhaust air flow. Check your outside flapper and the duct work all the way to the dryer. You can also see in the dryer through the exhaust pipe, clean it with an shop vac. as far as you can. Also check to be sure a sock didn’t fall into the lint screen slot and get push down in. There is also a problem on some models that have to long of screws holding a sensor that can tear of the felt seal on your lent screen. If the lent seal is damaged, look in the slot and down about 2” in the middle. These can easily be changed one at a time with shorter screws.
