This dryer is working, but it takes 4 hours to dry with a full load.

Sanitize option gets the clothes too hot.  Where do I look first?

Check the flapper on the outside of the house. Make sure its not clogged with lint. Then like sh2sh2 said. Check your vent

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Remove the vent from the dryer and run a cycle, if it dries the clothes in one cycle then it is a venting issue.

Dryer Vent 4" diameter

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,
$ 3.99 sometimes on sale for $ 2.99
