Gaining access to the inside of LG DLE3777 dryer.

When running, our LG DLE3777 dryer is making a rattling noise, like something is loose inside. I have no idea how to gain access to the inside however. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply - the rattling is a deeper sound than change - I have discovered that I can press on the front of the dryer, about a foot from the floor, and minimize the rattling. Looks like I'll have to to inside from the bottom....

We have a GE DBXR463GD1WW gas dryer, once the cycle is over it makes a rattle noise as if something is loose.The noise is comming from the bottom of the dryer, any idea what that might be?


if there is something loose inside your control panel, i mite get concerned a little, if it a piece of metal, that bad, new control unit, new circuit board, cost to replacement, either you will have to figure out or have some come and fix it .
fix now nothing broken yet
but circuit board, fire, explosion maybe,

Making noise whenever it runs(circle).


Hello, what kink of noise? I know what the problem is. inside of the dryer there are two plastic roller with ball bearing pressured into the hub. Because of the head generatored in the dryer the bearing will loose their grease. This will bearing rattle with thump/thump and squeaking.

Now if the noise is in the front of the dryer then the felt seal will be need to be replaced. I hope that I could be of some service to you. GB...stewbison

Dryer makes a "thumping" sound even when it is running and clothes are not in it. Sounds like a pair of shoes are in there being dried.

How do you remove the top/front of dryer?


Like a lot of the newer "energy efficient" models there is no longer an easy way to get to this stuff.
There are screws on the rear of the top that once removed will allow the top to slide back a little, then lifted off to expose the innards of ur machine. The front of the dryer has to be removed to gain access to the drive train. Some of these LG "laughing greatly" machines have to have the front electronic controls removed to be able to access the top screws that attach the front of ur dryer to the chassis, lucky you. Once you gain access to the screws for the front of ur unit, disconnect the door switch harness, pivot the front out slightly at the top and lift, the bottom is retained by clips. Then you can view the inner front support, rollers, belt, tensioner etc..
best of luck, and have fun,
ttfn

The dryer makes a loud noise when running. It still works and drys. Its a loud screeching sound. Do you think the belt needs to be replaced?


Could be the one of the 4 drum rollers, Idler pulley or belt.
I usually replace them all at once for long term reliability.
