LG 2514W Rear Seal

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?

Hello,
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

Ok, it's the rear drum seal - roper electric dryer - RES7646KQ - need a repair manual on how to replace it...


Follow these directions on getting the drum out of the machine. The kit you want to order is call a rear seal with adhesive and the part number is 279857
1) unplug the dryer. 2) Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer. 3) take the two phillips head screws out where the lint trap is. 4) with a flat head screwdriver pop the top of the dryer up by sliding the driver inbetween the top and front of the dryer and pry upwards a little. 5) on the left and right upper inner sides of the dryer you will find two screws, one on each side, remove these and the front should be easlily remove. 6) Next is to remove tension from the belt so that you can remove the drum. To do this simply reach under the drum and pull the idler pulley in the direction of the closest wall. This will give you the slack needed to take the belt off. 7) carefully pull the drum out. I usually do this by lifting up on the left from the top, using it as a handle. This is helpful because it also prevents the belt from getting snagged on anything underneath.

Brown marks left on clothing -- occasionally My dryer is not gas but electric but that wasn't a choice on here.


If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: Rollers Rear seal Front glides Front seal Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set. Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it. Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set. Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior.

I'm finding pinholes in my clothing.


I'd be more suspicious of what you're putting through the wash, rather than the machine.

LG 2514W Rear Seal


Hi kc,
You are on the right track, the dryer has many screws and sections to pull off including the top and front. I use a plastic scraper from Ace Hardware to remove old felt to prevent scraping enamel on drum. Note how the belt loops on the tensioner to the motor pulley.
