Unplug power cord. Remove phillips head screws on the bottom side of the "L" bracket on the back side of the dryer's top. Use the flat sides of your hands to sharply push back on the dryer's top, sliding it back about 2 inches and then lifting it off. Remove screw from top corner front corners and pry control locking tabs off from along top edge. (watch for sharp edges) Swing control panel up onto top of dryer. Remove the two screws at the bottom side of the door opening and the four screws along the top of the front panel. Unplug the light, door switch, and also the moisture sensor (by the bottom of the drum) then remove front panel. Remove four screws holding front drum support and lift up on it a bit to remove. Look at how the belt goes around the motor and pulley before removing, then take out drum. You will need to remove the phillips screws from behind dryer to remove the rear drum support assembly, allowing you to get to the nuts on the back rollers. First time job: maybe 2 hours. Second time: maybe a half hour, tops.

There are 4 screws holding on a plate on the back. It is not the whole panel. Are you trying to get at the ball sensor?

Cracked drum lg tromm dle2512w dryer. is it worth replacing? dryer is about 3 yrs old


I'd say yes, especially if you replace it yourself to avoid a service call. Top needs to come off (screws at back, then push top back 2 inches and lift off), remove front, remove 4 screws holding front bulk head / front rollers, slip belt off tension pulley, remove drum, reverse to install.

My LG tromm dryer wont heat and i don't know how ignite the pilot


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

I have a front loader LG Tromm dryer that has a crack in the drum. Can this be self repaired anad if so how? Thanks


I HAVE REPLACED SEVERAL OF THEM. THE ROLLERS CAN GO BAD AND THE TUB IS SUPER THIN. IT USEUALLY CRACKES AT THE WELD IN THE BACK. THERE MAY BE A RECALL ON THAT BY NOW. THE LG COMPANY MIGHT SEND YOU A NEW TUB AND ROLLERS IF YOU COMPLAIN TO THEM ENOUGH. UNTIL THEN ALUMINUM TAPE IS A TEMPORARY REPAIR

LG DRYER MAKING CLUNKING NOISE


Clunking could be from bad rollers or cracked drum. Check the drum seam for a crack. If its the rollers you can do the same thing as drum replacement only order the rollers. I got my parts from Sears parts. The below is for a 2514 but should be close for yours.


Ordered drum from Sears parts. 3045EL1002D
Cost of 85$ + 15 to ship. It came in 5 days.

Here is how to do it on a DLE2514W. Takes about an hour. I only used a phillips screw

driver. Take your time and look over the situation. I hope that I rememberd

everything. Good luck.
