Converting LG gas dryer to propane DLE7177WM/DLG188WM

I need to convert to propane. I had looked up kits and saw they are available on line. So called Home Depot to see if they carried and they said I would need a licensed tech to do this for me. I don't mind doing myself if not dangerous like posted on a previous problem. Also don't mind hiring someone. Got 1st call back today and was quoted $250.00 labor and $30. for part. Does this seem like a fair price? Gosh I hope not. And anyone else know if it is ok to do myself?

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.

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.

Lp conversion for LG dryer


After removing the three screws which pass through the L bracket into the back of the dryer:
Stand in front of the dryer and (using the palms of your hands) give the top a sharp push back on the dryer top at the left and right side of the top. The top should slide back 1 to 2 inches. Now lift the top off.

If you post again with further questions, make sure to post under the model number you have. (you posted using a combo washer / dryer, and stated you are converting to LP, which combo units are not gas.)

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.
