Try this: Most dryers tops are held in position with a spring clip(s). Pop the top up being careful of the finish.

You will soon discover the process for holding the front panel on --- generally spring clip(s) or screws or tabs or combination thereof.

Be careful of the door safety switches and wires.

The drum should come free of the dryer as you remove the front panel

I hope this answers your question

SOURCE: LG Dryer cracked drum on

Thanks for the solution. I figured out how to remove the drum the other day. Since this is a ongoing problem with the drum i figured a new one is going to fail someday so i took my cracked drum to a weld shop and had them tack weld in a few locations (inside and outside) and fix the crack at the seam. My cost was $30. I installed it and it seems to be working great.

SOURCE: Thumping sound from loose drum

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

LG DLE5977W electric dryer hums when attempting to restart


This is usually the motor but not always. Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.
If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers, pulley, rear bearing, then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

I have a LG dryer dle5977w and it has started making a rattling noise it is coming from the bottom left side by the lint fan does any one out there have a idea of what it might be


May be a small sock or dryer sheet caught in the blower wheel.
Remove filter and use a flashlight to see down the filter housing. You may be able to see item.
Rotate the drum each way by hand to help see item.
Remove with hooked wire hanger.

You may need a service call to remove object.

LG DRYER MAKING CLUNKING NOISE


Look inside the drum at the seam, front and back side. The weld on the stainless steel drum may have cracked. You would need to replace part number 3045EL1002F. It is moderatly difficult to replace.
