Question about LG Dryers
2: Remove the front door assembly (2 screws holding the hinge to the drier carcase)
3: Remove the top cover (2 screws at the rear, then slide the top backwards and lift off). It's a good idea to remove any fluff from the innards at this point.
5: Remove the cover over the drum bearing and earth strap (2 screws)
6: Remove the cover over the fan assembly (numerous screws)
8: Remove the fan vanes (3 hex screws holding 2 metal flanges that make up the impeller fan)
9: Remove all screws around the rear cover and gently lift it up (I supported one edge with a basin perched on the rear of the drum, it gives access to the motor chassy etc. There's a vent tube that will come dislodged at this point; it's easy to relocate later.
11: Carefully feed the belt past one idler wheel and then over the motor pulley. Slowly turn the drum slightly to encourage the belt to feed round the second idler wheel.
13: Replace the rear cover (make sure the vent tube is seated correctly at front and rear). Tighten all screws.
15: Replace the drum bearing circlip (I took the opportunity of rotating the bearing through 180 degrees). Replace the copper earthing strap.
16: Replace the fan housing cover and drum bearing cover. (Make sure the heating element is free of fluff and crud)
18: Fire up the beast!!! It may smell a little if there's anything still on the heating element.
