Question about Dryers

2 Answers

LG Tron Gas Dryer Model # DLG8388WM - I bought a used LG Tron and have to convert it to LP from Propane. What parts do I need and how do I do the install myself. Thank You.

When I turn the dryer on hooked up to the LP gas line it doesn't ignite and I get a gas smell. I hope this is due to the wrong gas line.

You can pay a service tech like myself $90/hr, 1 hour minimum charge to do the conversion in 5-10 minutes, or do it yourself in 10-15 minutes with a #2 philips screw driver, a straight slot screw driver and a crescent wrench. Your choice! :) Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: LP gas conversion on an LG dryer

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.

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: samsung gas dryer convert to propane

I purchased a Samsung steam gas dryer and found that no one in our area knew anything about them, Fortunately I am a gas tech. but have never worked on this brand. The first thing is you should always use a gas technician before doing this. Secondly turn off the gas and electricity. You must remove the two screws from the back that hold on the top of the appliance and set this aside. Then lift up the front electronics and disconnect the wiring harness, once you've done this there are 5 screws along the top of the silver strip or door area. This will alow you to lift up the front and disconnect the wiring harness and set aside. now you can follow the instructions on converting your dryer. PLEASE check for LEAKS and proper gas flow. Follow the same steps in reverse to put the dryer back together and happy drying.

I have a DLG8388WM LG dryer i have changed the ignitor and the thermostat twice now it still will not stay lit.it lites then goes out within a second what else could it be.


It's common for a problem like this with a gas dryer to be cause by a bad coil on the gas valve.
This is often a simple and cheap repair, but I looked up you model number and I don't believe you can get a replacement coil on this model LG dryer so you would then need to replace the gas valve, part # 5221EL2002A

Need to change from LP to propane. How do I get access


Gas to Propane requires a Propane Certified technician. These technicians are provided by the company that provides Propane that they will be using.
You may need to get a Propane conversion kit, for technician from the Propane company to install.
You can certainly double check on this...Hope this helps.

Lg dryer - gas


If you do not have the original orifice you will have to order a natural gas orifice and replace the LP one with it. It is just a small brass threaded part with the correct size hole in it, located right at the end of the burner. For a LG dryer it is probably part number 4948EL4001B but you should get your model number from the sticker just inside the door and order the correct part from your nearest servicing dealer. You can find LG servicer's in the US on line at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp
