I've got a
relatively new clothes dryer (a few years old), but it just doesn't
seem as effective as it used to be.
cleaning lint out of every pore possible, but what used to take 60
minutes to dry now takes 75-80 minutes. Any suggestions?

Other than checking for lint blockages, which you have already
done. You might want to make sure that the venting pipe leading
from the back of the dryer doesn't have a kink in it or is flattened
Another thing you
should check is the flapper of the vent on the outside of your house. Sometimes
lint can stick to the sides and keep the flapper(s) from opening all
Other than these
quick and easy fixes, the internal thermostat
that senses the temperature inside the dryer might be faulty.
This would require you calling in a service technician.
Hope this helps
