Cracked drum on the DLE3777W model

Clothes have a burned smell when they come out of the dryer. Thumping noise as well. LG will do nothing about this issue. Our dryer is almost 2.5 years old. Does anybody know the replacemnet number for this drum on this model. Has anyone replaced a drum and hw long has it lasted. Want to make sure its worth replaceing or just to get a new dryer.

The drum is a part number 3045EL1002F which will set you back at least $135. Still well worth the repair, especially if you can install it yourself. You have to remove the top by removing 3 screws in back and sliding top back about 2 inches and lifting off. Then, remove front panel. Remove 4 screws holding the front bulkhead. Remove belt from drum. Remove drum. First time might take a hour, second one you do will take about 15 minutes.
Now, don't rate me down because you don't like having to repair your dryer. I didn't manufacture it. I'm just giving you a bunch of free advise.

Mntech, how do you wrap the belt around the pulleys once they are off, there appears to be too much slack when putting the drum back in the machine?

    I figured out my problem. Thanks to mntech for the post, his explanation got me moving and saved me money because I was able to make the repair described in pretty short order.

I have a thumping noise as the dryer runs, but it seems to work fine.

Look closely at the seam of the dryer drum, at the very front and the very back. I suspect that the seam has developed a crack, and makes a thumping noise each time the crack passes over the drum support rollers. You will have to replace the drum to eliminate the problem

LG DLE3777W dryer thumps when running . It sounds like there are tennis shoes in the drum.

Probable cause is the bearing on the wheel that turns the drum is worn out. They are easy to replace and should cost less than $25. for the part.
Remove the front of the dryer and turn the drum by hand, you should be able to tell which side is worn.
Be sure and unplug first.

LG TROMM DRYER DLE5977 Burning Smell

It is a POS dryer, we have the same one. My suggestion get another dryer. We vacuumed it all out (don't you have a problem with the lint catcher?) Then it started loud pounding noise, which a lot of people seem to have the same problem, then our sensor went out and we had to dry the clothes 5-10 x' crack in stainless steel drum and is chewing up all our expensive clothes!

There is a knocking noise when drying clothes

Look for a crack at the welded seam of the dryer drum. Noise maybe coming from the crack when it passes over the drum support rollers. Check front and back side of the seam. Solution is to replace the drum. If this is not found, please describe your symptoms in more detail.
