Want to switch the side the door opens on my lg dryer

The directions for reversing the door can be found on page 13 and 14, with pictures of the operation. Open the door to reverse. Check the 10 screws that need to be removed (6 on the left, 4 on the right). Remove 4 dummy screws with a screwdriver. Remove the two screws from, and disassemble, the latch. Hold on to the hinge while removing 4 screws from the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Remove the door from the cabinet cover. Move the door to the left side and insert a hinge into a hinge hole. Hold on to the hinge while screwing down the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Insert the latch to the right side and install the screws. Screw down the 4 dummy screws to the right side. Check that the door closes and latches properly.

I need to know how to get the front off of my lg dle0442w dyer.

Disconnect power then using a putty knife, push the blade in the seam between the top panel and the front panel against the retaining clips 2 3/4" (7 cm) from the sides. Lift the top panel while doing this to release the clips and raise the pane.

Open the door and remove the two screws at the bottom of the door opening.

Remove the screws securing the top of the front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel slight away from the cabinet and disconnect the door switch wire harness. Pull the front panel completely out and set it aside.

Reassemble the dryer by following the disassembly steps in reverse order.

My dryer does dry my clothes... thier is not hot air coming out what could be worng?

Could be the element the safety's or some sort of sensor. To disassemble remove the top first by removing screws in rear. To take off the control remove to screw on each side of the back. All connectors are color coded. Cannot screw up reassemble.Lift control out and up. Control board has 4 screws and is replaced as a unit. Keep the selector knob.
Removing and reversing the door
Remove the screws from opposite side and then remove the latch pull out the latch no wires are there. Take the door off and reverse it then replace the latch and shorter screws for extra holes.
Remove the front:
Disconnect the dryer light and door switch wires. Move harness out yer way. Remove 2 screws at the base of the door opening and 4 screws along the top. Tip the panel to the front and lifts off. Next remove the top bracket 2 screws each end. Lift brace up and off.
To remove the shroud/panel 4 screws are removed and lifted up and pulled forward. Disconnect the wire to the humidity sensor.
Remove the belt from idler and yank the drum out. (The belt goes under the tensioner then over the pulley then release it and the spring holds everythang in place like a DOT dryer.) The grooved/ribbed surface goes to the tub side. themobilian_672.jpg

Is it possible to reverse door swing on dryer? My daughter has a new Elite front load dryer that swings from left.

Your dryer is designed so the door swing may be reversed at any time without additional parts. Conversion is accomplished by transferring hinges to the opposite side of the cabinet.
To change the direction of the door opening:
1. Open the dryer door. Remove the four hinge hole plugs from the left side of the door opening. Place nearby for future installation. NOTE: You may need a plastic knife to help pull out the plugs. Be careful not to scratch the paint.

2. Remove the four screws that secure the door hinges to the dryer front panel (see below). NOTE: Remove one screw from each of the two hinges first. Hold the door firmly before removing the last two screws.

3. Rotate the door 180° and reinstall the door hinges to the dryer front panel with the four screws.

4. Install the four hinge hole plugs in the open screw holes on the right side of the door opening.

Hope this helped Tim

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.

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