Question about LG DLG7188 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer takes hours to dry ever since I converted to propane.

I put the dryer on to dry a load and literally have to do this at least 3 times before load dries. I moved and converted to propane worked great a couple times then not again. I've checked connection. I checked dryer to make sure it was getting hot. Not sure what to do next. It takes all day to do just a bit of laundry. And I'm getting scared of propane bill.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.
