I have a Wirlpool front loader model# GEW9200LW0. I stop drying my cloths. I don't understand the dryer gets hot but the cloths are still wet even after putting it on timed dry for 99 min. I've opened it up to clean out all the lint that was in the compartment even in the back of the dryer.

try a load with the Vent disconnected

Dryer Vent

Vent should be rigid metal.
Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK, if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.
NO plastic
NO PVC
NO screws
Foil Duct Tape is OK.
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F
Check / clean the Dryer Vent
Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.
Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.
If you have a Harbor Freight Store near you,

I disconnected the vent hose from the back of the dryer. I set it for 60min. at high temp and the close are still a little damp. I don't have access to a a temp gauge so I could not check the temp. Where the vent exits the apartment I used a vent clean out tool that brushes the vent line. I must have brushed and vacuumed out 12ft. out-going and 12ft. incoming. The total length from laundry room to outside vent is approx. 25-26ft. I'm confused about this.

But the clothes were much dryer at the end of the dry cycle with the vent off vs. with the vent on, correctum? This would point to a problem in the vent. See the Ultimate Dryer Venting Guide for lots o' good poop on this.

... I don't have access to a a temp gauge.

a meat thermometer would work.
Would need temperatures to diagnose. . .
