My husband and I disagree...
If you were to stick your hand in your dryer (hasn't been used for a few hours) would you feel cold, outside air? We live in MN and it is cold here! Barely zero degree temps for over a week.
If I stick my hand in our dryer, you feel an instant cold draft. I don't think it's sealed right or something. He doesn't want to do the work...you get the picture.
If you open your dryer right now (provided it hasn't been used in several hours) how is the air?

Mine is not as cold as our outside temps, but it is definitely colder than room temperature. I've been noticing it for the past few months, but have never noticed it in previous years. I've been meaning to tell my husband, but I keep forgetting.

Leaving the dryer door open is like having a window open. I do my part to insulate by letting the clothes pile up in there

My dryer vents to the outside. There isn't a seal or anything. It's definitely cold!

I would worry if it wasn't cold because the vent needs to be clear to outside.

Why would you want it to be sealed?
It vents to the outside and you have to pull new air in from the room as it cycles the moist air out.

Yep, cold. It only needs to be warm when you turn on the dryer.
