I have recently moved into a home with a gas dryer. I have never owned or used gas before. My problem is this, when attempting to dry a load of bath towels, I set the temperture on high/cotton, with the timer between 50 and 60 minutes. After the cycle ends the towels are still damp. I run the dryer again the same temp and time, still damp. I call the landlord, who calls a repair man, he checks everything lint in vents miminal, dryer heating well,good to go, right? NO,rewash damp stinky towels, same temp and time, STILL damp! Call landlord, who consulted some website, says to remove vent from back( may be really clogged)STILL damp!

That could be caused by the burner cutting off prematurely. What the cause of that could be would have to be investigated. It could be a problem in the gas burner itself or part of the control system.

I would suggest having a different technician look at it, if the first one couldn't find the problem... and the venting was definitely not the problem.
