Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer
Hi Rick: Follow-up questions:
1. Where can I get a rear seal for this unit?
2. I still cannot tell whether I would take the top off and the front off, then remove the drum from the front by bringing it towards me (in front of the unit) or do I remove the top, then the back panel? The service manual doesn't make this clear to me at all.
3. What type of adhesive would be best to use? Is it really just glued on?
I've used a company called MCMINONE online to order most components for LG products. Try them first.. If that fails to reap benefits.. I would call appliance repair shops in your area or search online for parts for LG products.. ( there are numerous hits if you do that) and get your parts that way.
You will need to remove the top and front to pull the drum out and that is done typically by removing three screws on the back of the cover.. to allow it to slide toward the back of the unit then you should be able to lift it off. You'll need to unscrew the filter housing and with the top cover removed you should be able to remove a few sheet metal screws to detach the front panel.. You'll also have to disconnect the door switch... and the drum belt.. ( here is where you may want a digital picture to use as reference when reinstalling it.. )
As for gasket cement, you can get some in a small container at an automotive parts store of the parts house you find to get your gasket should be able to provide that too..
I am in my day job now ( lunch break) and can assist you better from home later on if you need any additional information.. feel free to ask.. ( If I recall correctly, did you say you lived in western mass?) If thats true, I may know arepair man that would be willing to assist you.. but I would have to ask first.. Please advise on that one.. TTYL
