Asko dryer overheating.........

Now that I have sucessfully replaced the drum roller wheels, and the belt, the noise of howling puppies in the dryer has gone away.  Now I have noticed the dryer will shut off in mid cycle due to it overheating.  The rear panel of the dryer gets too hot to touch for much longer than about 5 seconds.  Is that normal?:yikes:

To restart the dryer I have to reset the button in the back of the machine.

Currently the dryer is venting directly into my crawl space (to be rectified soon), so there is really no vent pipe air flow restriction or blockage.  The existing vent is long and clogged and needs a full replacement.  Will replace with a rigid pipe system.  It will still be about 25 feet long.  I realize that a shorter pipe is better, but this is what I have to work with.  I was thinking of using the white 4" rigid pipe, instead of the flex metal one.  What do you think?  Should I consider using the larger pipe diameter, to reduce flow resistance?
