Dryer Repair / Re: Brand new dryer has the same problem as the old one - please help!

  You are correct, my bad.  I just posted the answer on the wrong appliance thread, so I am reposting it here.  Hopefully someone else will find use from it.  Here goes......     
Wow.....let me tell you the sory of the washer/dryer......
After the new washer/dryer was deliverred, we still had the same problem - the dryer would not dry, the unit would shut off after about 20 minutes of running. 
I called the appliance store, and they were kind enough to swap the new unit out for yet another new unit, thinking that the problem was the unit itself. 
The second new unit also had the same problem.  I was then told to run the unit with the exhaust detached.  Lo and behold, the unit worked fine, ran for 40 minutes, after which I had to shut it off because it was filling the apartment with hot air, and we were having a heat wave outside. 
I had to contact the condo association, because it seemed to be a problem with the venting, and I could not access anything behind the sheetrock (nor should I need to, it is the jurisdiction of the condo association).  They sent their men out, and they had to cut away the sheetrock to get up into the ceiling space.  Turns out, this was a retrofit of a pre-war building, and they used the plastic tubing to exhaust all of the dryers into the main chimney.  Being that we are on the first floor, everyone's (all 12 apartments) heavy lint was settling into the chimney, and causing my unit to get blocked.  Turns out, there was no trap door in the basement either.  I don't know how they managed to get all of the lint removed from the chimney, but they were there for about 3 hours on day one ( to diagnosed the problem) and 9 hours on day 2 ( to cut open the walls, climb into the head space, and remove all of the lint).  Since them, we have not had a problem.
I thank all of you for your help.  There was no way anyone would have known about this, except for the builder, who used a short cut and (likely illegally) vented all of the dryers into the unused chimney.  I think the chimney was probably for an old furnace, but since we all have PTAC units for the heat and air-conditioning, the chimney is no longer being used, at least for heat and oxygen/carbon monoxide transfer . 
This is one to remember! :thanks:
