Some amount of accumulation there seems to be normal. However, there has been a redesign on the housing to help minimize it. The new design has a smooth back instead of circular ridges around the perforations. Check that the lint scraper piece at top of the housing isn't worn or broken. It's supposed to sit about 1/8" from the screen surface such that lint is scraped off when it accumulates to that level on the screen.

Also check if there are any rips/tears in the screen. Bits of hard debris (seeds/burrs from yard work, etc.) in the lint can get caught between the screen and scraper, causing small tears in the screen. To pull the screen, remove the the screw recessed at the bottom of the circular filter retainer, then rotate the retainer ring clockwise to detach it from the drum to remove the retainer & filter. The filter snaps to the retainer ring.

Wow! Thank you so much! I've had to order the screen because there are three small tears in the screen which explains why there is so much lint being trapped in there. I really appreciate the info! You have been so helpful. I'll post an update after the part comes in.
