SOURCE: lp conversion for LG dryer

After removing the three screws which pass through the L bracket into the back of the dryer:
Stand in front of the dryer and (using the palms of your hands) give the top a sharp push back on the dryer top at the left and right side of the top. The top should slide back 1 to 2 inches. Now lift the top off.

If you post again with further questions, make sure to post under the model number you have. (you posted using a combo washer / dryer, and stated you are converting to LP, which combo units are not gas.)

Door latch broke cant open door to get clothes out

You don't say what make/model but if its a front loader take off the top lid and reach down the front of the drum and release the door latch. You may have to break it to achieve this.

How do you change the front door seal on a LG 7kg front loader washing machine

Well I have the manual. If you want it.If the problem is water leaking out the door LG recommends you shim the door latch with washers. This would make the door close tighter and eliminate leaks. See page 36

I have front loader dryer and the door is popping

Buy door latch kit from parts supplier. Comes with male and female parts of latch. Replace female part first and see if problem correct. Replace male if necessary. Don't worry if parts break off and fall inside while removing old pieces.

Kit is very inexpensive. If after replacing both parts your door still pops open check to make sure door is not sprung. To do this place a known straight edge across center of door from left to right and be sure there are no gaps between door panel and straight edge. If no gaps, replace hinges. They are likely bent.

Dryer works for few minutes then stops

clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor
