SOURCE: need to replace roller's on LG Tromm Gas front

Unplug power cord. Remove phillips head screws on the bottom side of the "L" bracket on the back side of the dryer's top. Use the flat sides of your hands to sharply push back on the dryer's top, sliding it back about 2 inches and then lifting it off. Remove screw from top corner front corners and pry control locking tabs off from along top edge. (watch for sharp edges) Swing control panel up onto top of dryer. Remove the two screws at the bottom side of the door opening and the four screws along the top of the front panel. Unplug the light, door switch, and also the moisture sensor (by the bottom of the drum) then remove front panel. Remove four screws holding front drum support and lift up on it a bit to remove. Look at how the belt goes around the motor and pulley before removing, then take out drum. You will need to remove the phillips screws from behind dryer to remove the rear drum support assembly, allowing you to get to the nuts on the back rollers. First time job: maybe 2 hours. Second time: maybe a half hour, tops.

SOURCE: I need to replace roller's on LG Tromm Gas front load dryer

There are 4 screws holding on a plate on the back. It is not the whole panel. Are you trying to get at the ball sensor?

SOURCE: LG WD-12124RD How do I remove the front panels?

Hiya,
most machines now open from the back you will find 2 or 3 screws/bolts at the top holding on the top section if you un screw those then slide the top back slightly it should unclip allowing you to take off the top this should expose some more screws or bolts that will be holding on the front & sides, if your machine is leaking from the front you could have a leaky door seal too so you may want to check that before starting to take it apart.

Hope this helps

Need to convert from natural gas to propane


Take 3 screws out of bottom side of Z shaped metal part on the back of the dryer's top. Stand in front of dryer and use the palms of your hands to sharply push dryer top back about 2 inches and lift top off. Open door and remove screw at 4 and 8 O'Clock position. Remove control panel (ususally 2 screws and a bunch on retaining plastic parts along the top side) and set on top of dryer or unplug electrical plugs and set aside. Remove screws at top of front panel. Unplug light bulb and door switch. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom tabs, then unplug moisure sensor wire at bottom, allowing front panel to be set aside. Remove 4 screws at sides of drum support assembly, lift up and off. Release belt, and remove drum. (easier to do if flat metal part originally right behind control panel is removed first) Use belt as a handle and lift drum out of dryer, allowing access to burner assembly. Change burner orfice and regulator blocker. Re-assemble and test.

WHERE DO I FIND THE RESET BOTTON FOR MY DRYER


If you are referring to the hi-limit thermostat reset, it is located on the left side of the gas burner. Access this by removing the front panel with these steps.
1: Depress the two clips between the front panel and the dryer top and lift top up and back.
2: Remove two screws, one from each corner. (Running down through the front panel and into the cabinet)
3: Remove two screws from front panel below the lint trap area.
Watch the edges on these, they can be very sharp.

LG DRYER DLE2532W DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS


DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

LG Dryer DLG7188RM LP conversion back to NG


Disconnect power. Open dryer door and remove 2 phillips screws near lint filter. Remove three phillips screws at very back of dryer top which go through an L shaped part into the back of the dryer. (the L shaped part remains attached to the dryer top) Push the dryer top back about 2 inches and lift off. Remove one screw at each top front corner holding front control panel on to dryer. Remove control panel by carefully releasing plastic tabs which are holding front control panel onto metal support. (Watch out for sharp edges !) You can unplug all electrical plugs, or just swing it up on top of the dryer. (careful not to scratch the plastic control panel) Remove the four phillip screws now assessable at the top of the dryer's front panel / door panel. Tilt forward, unplug door switch and drum light, and lift front panel off . Now set the panel aside. At this point, you may be able to continue with the conversion, but it is easier to do and see if you remove the drum.

To remove drum, Unplug the sensor wire at the bottom of the drum support and remove four phillips screws (going into sides of dryer) holding front drum support and lift up and remove front drum support. Reach in under the drum to unhook the belt. Take drum out.

Take two phillip screws out of flame spreader and push flame spreader back off brass orifice into the burner cone a bit to remove it. Unscrew brass orifice and replace with the Natural Gas orifice. Turn the brass slot headed regulator blocker screw on the front top of the gas valve all the way up. Reassemble.

Sounds complicated but it's not real bad.

A FixYa rating is expected with this much help. Thanks.
