    Same problem. all resellers of LG and even LG are worthless. I dare say 50 of gas dryers are on propane, LP. No instructions whatsoever how to get to the regulator and back is welded on. Unit is worthless unless this 20 cent part is installed. Nine hours on voice mail machines only to talk to idiots!

    They were supposed to deliver are LP dryer. sent a natural gas with no conversion kit. Two weeks for that and must dismantle the entire unit to insert it. How do you dismantle the front?

Mr. D, make sure you have a little time, you have to remove a few things. 1. Remove the 3 screws in back which hold the top on. Slide the top back and lift off. 2. Remove the two screws on each end of the control panel frame. (inside). Disconnect the control panel harness, pull up and foward, place aside. Remove the 4 screws on the top of the front cover, disconnect the harness for the door switch and it should pull foward. Now I believe you can get at the gas valve on the lower right. Make sure to reverse the limiter as well as putting on the new orfice. If you need any further help, e mail me at catriver1@gmail.com Will be home this evening. Catriver.

I just did this, but there's no 'limiter' to reverse. I've seen this on a stove, but not on the dryer.
It's not igniting, no heat at all
thoughts appreciated

Try calling your gas supplier if you need to ask you should not even try.

I'm surprised they didn't give you instructions with the kit. Gas vale usually at floor level behind dryer. Sometimes you have to remove the lower drawer in stove it there is one and reach through there to turn off valve. After you pull the stove out I would remove the flex line and put a good plug on the valve..

Lp conversion


You guys like things that go boom. My advice is to get a certified gas tech. To change the orfice to LP you have to take apart the unit from the front.
