My 3431 dryer takes too long to dry and it vibrates badly during the spin cycle.


You have two issues. The cycle time on this unui in the normal mode is 3+ hours. If it is longer than this you have a clogged condensate/dry duct which needs to be cleaned out by an LG tech. The balance thing is a matter of using a level and getting it perfectly level. Once you have done this, if it still bounces check the feet and adjust the one that is not solid on the floor while the machine is bouncing.

The washer bounces during spin cycle
