There is a hole in the inside drum of the dryer


LG is responding to the complaints of cracked drums in their entire LG dryer line up by offering a replacement for the cracked drum part for free.

NOTE: This will only apply if you have an authorized LG servicer replace the drum for you. The labor is not covered so you will have to pay for the labor to have the drum replaced. You can call LG customer service at 1 800 243 0000 for more info.

LG DLE2514w electric dryer has loud thud every turn


Hi,
Most model dryers are supported at thge rear of the drum with a bearing configuration, but usually the front of the drum is supported by some lining pads or guides. These help hold the rotation of the drum concentric. It sounds like your drum is not spinning concentric. My guess would be that some new guides might need to be installed.
Hope this helps...

Cracked drum on the DLE3777W model


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.

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.

Cracked Drum on LG Dryer Model #DLE2512W


If you are still looking for information on this:
No, there has not been any recall.
It is not a real common problem. I only see 1 or 2 a year, which is not many. (LE errors on washers are much more common, for example) The part number of the drum for a DLE2512W dryer is 3045EL1002D and lists for just over $100. You can find a service center to order the part from (in the US) at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp
I would rate the repair at about a 5 or 6 out of 10 on a scale of 1-10 in difficulty. (Basically, remove top, remove front control panel, remove front panel, remove front drum support, remove belt, drum comes out the front, reassemble.)
