Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer I purchased a LG washer and dryer from Home Depot in Manhattan, Kansas. When we picked up the washer and dryer they were in pristine boxes therefore not checked for damage. Upon arriving home with the appliances we discovered that although the dryer box was perfect, the dryer itself looked like an elephant had sat on it. We immediately contacted Home Depot. All of this took place over 3 weeks ago and they still can't get me a replacement for my smashed dryer. I had an installer her when the appliances arrived but needless to say he couldn't install the dryer. This keeps going on and on and we can't seem to get LG to send a new dryer.

Re: dryer

I used to do warranty work for LG needless to say, after finding out customers were waiting up to 2 1/2 months just to get parts i stopped doing any work for them. if it were me, i would take both the washer and dryer back and buy a bosch instead. much more reliable and there customer service is great

I need a dryer vent duct that transitions a 2 1/2 inch rectangle to a 4 inch round.

You can pick them up at Lowes or home depot. They are made specifically for tight clearance situations and are adjustable as far as length. They cost 10 bucks, but they are a life saver if you need one.

There is no power chord in back? where can i buy one and where or who can i have it serviced if it needs it?

Electric dryers use a large, gray 220 volt power cord with oversize plug that can be purchased at any hardware or home improvement store, such as Lowe's, Menard's, Sears, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, etc. They are easy to hook-up (they come with instructions), but many stores like Lowe's or Home Depot also have employees that can service your appliance too.

How do i change the cord?

Hi there, My question for you is, I'm going to assume this an 220 volt / 30 amp electric dryer - which is most common. Therefore, it sounds to me like you have an existing receptacle which has a 4-prong design. And, that you have a dryer with the electrical power cord already attached to it. If this is correct, then you would just need to replace the receptacle from a 4-prong, to a 3-prong. What you would need to do first is check the amperage on the existing receptacle. You want 30 amps, which is standard for most all electric dryers. If so, great! If not, it's most likely a higher amperage - which is fine. Then you'd have to go to your nearest appliance store (home depot, Lowe's, etc.) and pick up a 220 volt / 30 amp 3-pronged receptacle. Then, to replace it - first turn OFF the 30 amp. 2-pole circuit breaker. It's most likely the only one you have in your electrical panel. If there's two, then get a little inductance/voltage tester when purchasing your receptacle - to check for power. These are worth their weight in gold. So not to confuse (which I hope you're hangin' with me still..:) you any further. Once you've turned power OFF, and confirmed it. Remove the cover and receptacle (leaving the wires attached). Then, remove the ground (green) wire from the 4-prong recept. and put that into the 3-prong recept. Then, take the black wire off - and add it to the other too. Then you should have a red (but sometimes another black) wire. Do the same as you just did with the black. Now, the remaining wire (which is most likely a neutral/white) - you can cap this with a wirenut, or tape it good with electrical tape - and tuck this into the back of the box. Now make sure you've tightened and secured your connections...then attach the receptacle to the cover (see a note below on this cover) if applicable. Otherwise, you'll need to purchase this also. Actually, regarding that note I mentioned. You might want to pick a cover up when you purchase your receptacle, or at least ask the clerk. Off hand, I don't remember if they are compatible, or not? Anyway, after you're finished securing and wiring your receptacle - now you can go turn ON your circuit breaker. If it holds, great! If not, recheck your connections - and then contact me. I'll walk you through this. However, I believe you'll do fine. Anyway, Good Luck and I hope this helps! - Jim

The following link explains how to properly wire a three or four prong 220VAC appliance:

Read through the link provided, and make sure you have the power cord wired correctly at the terminal block in the back of the dryer. NOTE: If this is a new installation, you are required to be using a four-prong outlet with 4-prong power cord. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps solve your problem.

I have new DLG1320w gas dyer and do i have to buy the sepcial gas flex for it

Hello rubendidit,
Many home improvemnt stores such as home depot and lowes carry flex gas lines and shutoffs for these applications.. Some states require the gas line to be hard plumbed in so check applicable laws and use your own judgement. If you decide to go flex ( they are usually yellow colored) you may also consider picking up some 'snoop' leak checker ( sudsy water based product you daub onto fittings to make sure you don't have any gas leaks.. You put it on fittings and watch for bubbles.. if you get bubbles.. shut off the gas and repair the fitting with proper thread sealant.. Good Luck

Dryer wont heat!

It could be a problem with the terminal block in the back of the dryer.  You'll need to unplug the dryer and check the block.  I learned this on home  Should cost you under 75 dollars to fix if you do it yourself.
