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?

3 month old dryer is not drying, takes two drying cycles to get clothes dry.

Bad airflow to outside. To prove this, remove the hose and dry a load with windows open back and front of house. If they dry fast, you have a blockage in the hose to the wall or in the connector through the wall. Can also get birds nests in there if the flaps are faulty or weak.

The most common problem for a dryer to take more than one cycle to dry is restricted air flow.

1.when the dryer is running go outside and find where the venting is located, there should be a good amount of air flow.
2. if the air flow is not good look at the ducting coming from the back of the dryer and make sure it is not kinked or pushed back to far.
there is usually lint build up some where along the ducting or at the end of the duct where it vents to the outside.
3. if you have access to a leaf blower,this can be used to help clear any lint build up inside the duct from the dryer to the outside venting.
move your dryer out and take the leaf blower tube and stick it in the hole and turn it on.
the vented louvers need to be removed from the ouside of the house to allow the lint and things in the duct work to be blown out.

My ler4634eqo throws heat but takes 1 1/2 to dry cothes

before you look at the dryer , check your venting. 80% of all our dryer calls are a result of poor airflow. Vent connector between dryer and main vent or outside wall should be 4" rigid metal or heavy metal flex. Dryer manufacturers consider plastic, vinyl and foil to be improper due to their tendency to crimp and flatten easily. Vent coluld also be stopped up.
Check outside exhaust opening to be sure it is not clogged or otherwise closed. Best way to check vent sometimes is to pull dryer out, remove vent and run a load of clothes. If drying time is significantly better, then venting is your problem.

Clothes not dry

check your dryer venting from the machine to the outside vent,if they are plugged it will not dry properly,then make sure you have good air flow to vent on machine,if not dismantle and clean lint from inside machine,these are inexpensive fixes,then it could be a cycling switch or the humidity sensor bar that needs replace

Lint is not going into pull out lint trap. The lint screen is torn and lint is collecting behind trap.

Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.

Dryer tries to start - then stops and beeps PLEASE HELP

Check the exhaust hose. If the dryer isn't venting properly it will either stop or the heater will turn off and the clothes will remain wet. If the hose is not clogged check the wall vent tube.

Restricted venting is the most likely cause, they did change the thermostats a couple years ago. the small t-stats should look cut out on the metal side they should not be solid, also check to make sure the elements are not shorted to ground.
