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 convertion kit to convert to propane or is it in the line


You will be needing to find the manufacturer of the clothes dryer and call them on the telephone to ask this question. Look on the plate telling the manufacturer and the model and the serial numbers.
You will need this information for your phone call.
I am not certain, but I believe dryers cannot run on propane or butane.
I think the only run on "natural gas" or on LP gas ( liquified petroleum gas.
The two different gasses have different orifices for the pressure and flow of fuel.
God bless your efforts.

Converting back to nat gas from propane


Typically, conversion from natural to propane and visa-versa is just a simple connection behind the appliance. Look in the box of the conversion kit (or on the back of the packaging,) and you should see the conversion instructions. Since you are dealing with gas, you need to make sure the shut-off valve is... shut off so no gas can leak while do the exchange. Also, make sure there are not open flames anywhere near the work area. Take your time and follow the directions...

Converting your Natural Gas Dryer to Lp is taking it from a lower BTU gas "Natural" to a higher BTU "LP" value. The orfice on a LP gas valve is smaller because you dont need as much gas to make the same amount of heat. make sure you change the orifice. The little plug goes in the regulator of the gas valve, changing the valve from a low gas pressure Natural to a Higher Pressure LP.

If the kit doesnt look right, did you get the correct one?

Maybe you should call you LP provider they can do the conversion for you.

I am converting my gas dryer to propane and would like to know if I have to remove the natural gas regulator before hooking up to LP gas?


Most american dryers have the regulator built into the gas valve.
you will need to put he correct parts on the gas valve.

do you have another regulator on the gas line before the machine?

If you dont feel comfortable doing this conversion you should call your propane supplier and have them do it for you.
