Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer
I have an LG DLG5932W dryer. It started making squeaking noises a couple of says ago and stopped working. I managed to open up the dryer using the service manual and found that two rollers had just seized. One of them is in such a bad shape that two sides of the roller are flat.
I'm having trouble removing these rollers. Can someone please tell me how I can do so without breaking the assembly. Should I be using a wrench or is it simpler than that?
The front of the dryer's drum is usually supported by two rollers. These wheels are either metal with a rubber rim or pressed nylon. If the rollers squeak but appear to be in good condition, apply a few drops of 20-weight nondetergent motor oil (not all-purpose oil) to them. If the rollers are worn, you can replace them if the roller assembly is not riveted. To replace drum rollers:
Step 1: Remove the front of the cabinet. Rollers are usually held on a metal shaft by a spring clip.
Step 2: Remove the rollers by prying the spring clip off with a screwdriver. Under the clip are a washer, the rollers, and another washer. You might have to remove a small nut at the back of the shaft and remove the shaft itself to reach the rollers. Remove the rollers from the shaft and clean away built-up lint and dirt before installing the new roller. This dirt and lint buildup could cause the drum to turn slowly, which prevents proper drying and strains other dryer components.
Step 3: Install the new rollers on the shaft with the washers in the same position.
