Question about LG DLG5988 Gas Dryer
Need to remove front panel to get better access to the accumulated lint.
You need to remove the the top panel first. Take out the three screws at the top of the back panel, just under the lip of the overhanging top panel. This will allow you to slide sharply, the top panel to the rear a couple of inches and then you can lift it off. You will need to then remove the control panel, 4 screws. The control panel is held in place with those 4 screws and then is clipped into the dryers frame via clips on the back of the control panel. These clips are located on back of the panel, at the top. Once you finagle the clips loose, you tip the panel toward away from the front and the clips at the bottom of the panel will allow you to lift it away from frame. There is not much slack in the wiring to work with, but I was able to lay the panel on top. Next, you should open the door and remove the two srews you can see, at about the 4 and 8 o'clock position. Then look to the top of the fron panel and remove the visible screws that were hidden by the control panel. Then tip the top away from the frame and unplug the door open switch. Now you should be able to lift the front panel off and have access to remove the lint path. I believe it is just 2 more screws and you can remove that to clean it out. This is as accurate a description as I can remember, I just did this yesterday.
