Doesn't look like much more lint than the regular electric clothes dryer collects in 5-8 years usage. Unfortunately, by design, the heat pump system requires cooling fins that become clogged when the lint builds up, forming the issue you saw. I've actually taken apart dehumidifiers that looked similarly clogged inside.

Some routine maintenance should keep you in business with that system for quite some time to come...
