Question about Dryers
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.
Here's the oriface to convert it to Natural gas:
Part # M170 is for Natural gas, you have a #M171 in there now for Propane.
Here's the manual to do the conversion:
Real page 32, pdf page 32.
**** Be SURE you back the gas valve screw out as shown or soot city in your tube!!!
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org Will be home this evening. Catriver.

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...

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.
