Natural gas to propane conversion LG dryer

Should you be able to hear the burner during use after conversion...it sounds a little like a gas flame blowing in the wind and sounds like it is turning on and off during the drying cycle??

You posted under a combo washer / dryer WD-4343RHD.
For a gas dryer, conversion is to replace Nat gas orifice with LP one (the LP orifice has a air hole going cross ways through it) plus screwing the regulator blocker (brass slot head screw on top of the gas valve) all the way down (if you missed that step, I would expect your symptoms). Also, make sure you have a good vent with strong air flow at the outdoor outlet. If poor vent, short cycling may occur.

    Yes, a 20 lb propane tank with a gas grill type regulator should work just fine. How about a FixYa rating instead of just the Helpful? Seems like you got a lot of good info, and I expect your dryer is working now, correct?

Look on the back of the dryer close to the gas inlet. There may be another brass nozzle in storage there. Use it to replace the nozzle on the burner.

Do I need a part to convert my Maytag gas dryer/washer combo back from propane to Natural Gas?


Yes you can, but whether you should is another matter. I purchased a new dryer and needed it to be propane ready...you need to get the proper orifice (which lets the gas in to the burners) changed out. Natural gas orifice has a larger hole than a propane orifice. In addition, the regulator must be modified. It may involve flipping an insert under the cap (typical of stoves) or it may require conversion parts packed in the conversion kit (order one specific to your drier). This regulator is part of the piping within the back of the drier.


Incidentally, conversion orifice(s) should be included with the drier and screwed to the body in a clip. When you change it over and label the equipment as converted to propane, put the old natural gas orifice in the clip and screw it back onto the body. Put the instructions in a paper envelope and tape to the outside of the body of the drier.

I have just installed LP ventless in my garage . Burns a nice blue flame but the odor will burn your eyes and smell gets in the house. I had used this same heater 2yrs ago just fine w/no issues .Cleaned...


if your burners are dirty you will get incomplete combustion and this could cause the problem you described. be sure that the unit is for lp and not natural gas this situation could also cause the issue you describe.

LG Gas Dryer to use Propane vs natural gas


The difference between a natural gas appliance and a propane one is basically the gas nozzles. For example if you have a gas stove and you lift up the top, under the burners are the small gas nozzles. The problem is there are no standard when it comes to these nozzles. In other words they are not interchangeable form one brand (Whirlpool to LG) to another or from one type (washer to furnace) to another. What you can do is contact you locale propane dealer and ask them if they have any suggestions. Also look on line for sites that may offer conversion kits like RV dealerships.
Hope this helps.

LG gas dryer to convert in propane


If you replaced the orifice on the gas valve, then you must screw down on the adjustment screw on top of the valve.  Use a flat screwdriver and screw down the pressure adjustment screw till it stops in the down position.  Then the valve is set for propane use.
