Question about LG DLE3777 Electric Dryer
My dryer door has just started opening in the middle of a drying cycle and turns the dryer off. I found if I push the door in at the top left I can reset the dryer and it works again. How do I get the door to seal properly so it doesn't keep opening up during the drying cycle?
Check the door strike and the plunger to see if one of them has broke.

Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.

sounds to me like the nylon pieces that isolate the drum from the front of the door are gone, you may want to open it up and take a look at it. Is it an old dryer? Its either that or I suppose it could be the bearing in the middle of the back but I dont think it would be in only certain parts of a rotation, it would be all. Im sure the drum probably just ate through the nylon seperator.Theres not much else that only makes noise part of the time.. and theres not many moving parts.
Im not sure if there are replacement pieces for this but you can google it.

Recheck the vent all the way to the outside and make sure the vent hose is not smashed behind the dryer.
Long time to dry complaints almost always are due to a restricted vent.
Remove vent to dryer and test a wet load if they dry ok then the house vent is at fault.

How long is the exhaust venting system from the dryer to the outside, where it vents? The dryer is not equipped to push air through any pipe that is too much past 8-10'. Each 90 degree bend in the pipe adds 3-5', so a few feet plus a few 90 degree turns makes it nearly impossible for the dryer to do a good job drying clothes. I own a Tjernlund LB1 dryer boost fan and it works wonderfully - a great solution to drying clothes in a reasonable amount of time with much less wear and tear on my dryer.
Here is another idea - I recently opened up my dryer to fix a problem and found that the interior exhaust pipe - the part that takes the exhaust air out of the dryer, into the vent pipe on the back of the dryer and eventually outside - had become disconnected INSIDE the dryer. The dryer itself was full of lint and the air wasn't getting out of the dryer at all. If you have this problem you'll also have a lint problem, so check this out - it would be an easy thing to fix.
