Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
If you have a 3 inch hose at 45 feet there is probably too much air pressure making the thermostat kick out because of the extra heat. If its possible to run a 4 inch pipe i feel it probably would work. Another thought. Are you using a plastic flex pipe. If so if you used an aluminum pipe you may have the additional air flow. A plastic flex is not a good pipe to use as it will bend and make less air flow hope I am reading this right.

SOURCE: Venting a dryer outside
What do you need to reverse?
I understand that the wall kit is to blow the heated air from the dryer to outside therefore not humidifying the laundry.
Are you trying to draw air into the dryer from outside or blow the air outside?

I have had the same problem with my dryer for about 2 months. I bought a heater kit upgrade on eBay, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220334963461 , and installed it myself this past weekend. Easy to install for a do-it-yourselfer. About 6 screws to remove, lay the dryer on the back and its all right in front of you. Dryer is working like it is new again.

Is the dryer vented properly to the outside? Feel the amount of air flow when it's running and empty. It should be substantial. If it feels weak, you need to take the back off the machine. There is a metal 'box' that is connected to your vent line going out. Take the cover off the 'box and it is probably full of lint. This blocks the exit air and causes your problem.

SOURCE: Electric dryer will not dry
Is the dryer heating up? If so, then you have a problem with the moist air being taken away, which would indicate a problem with your fan or the vent. If it is not heating, then the problem is with the element, either bad or not getting power. I like to get parts from:
Belks used appliances 704-864-4496. May have a used part to save you money, or he can order and ship new parts if he does not have in stock. Either way, Harry Belk (the proprietor) usually saves me $$$.
