Condensation in Dryer

Hello, I noticed the other day that I have condensation coating the entire inside of my dryer. I have not used it for over a week. Any idea what could cause this?
I have some bushes outside very close to where the vent lets out. Could rain moinsture from the bushes be converted to steam with the hot weather, and then the vapor run down the vent and coat the entire inside of the dryer? Could it be something else?
Thanks in advance!

Probably just getting outside air sucked slowly in, and cooled indoors. The rest, as they say ...

This could hppen if you don't completely close the dryer door allowing outside air in.

Do you have air conditioning? Not only would that cool the drier below the dew point on a humid day but it could cause a negative pressure in the house that would derw outside air into the drier and since anything colder than the dew point will collect condensation it gets wet.
In any case it shouldn't be a problem since driers are made to manage moisture in clothing. you can always run it for a few minutes to dry it off.
Check that the flapper valve in the drier vent is not stuck open because of lint or something. This should prevent air from coming back into the house through the vent. If the A/C is causing negative pressure, you may need to rebalance some vents so that no outside air is coming in.
