Question about LG DLG3788W Gas Dryer
REPLACE ROLLERS ,IN THE BACK OF DRUM (2)
Posted on Feb 07, 2010
OK. I hope this helps someone that runs across it later. I had that.
It sounds creepy, like someone pounding to get out. I found that same
lint catch issue where it wasn't collecting. Here's the scoop. There
is a screw behind the lint bowl thing that lets you remove that piece.
(forgive me if it's not exact, it's been a few months since I fixed it)
OK, next, There is a ring around the side that needs to be turned a
notch to pull it off the drum. It's the white thing that you see when
you look into the drum. What happened is the tiny clips that hold onto
the lint wheel broke. the remaining ones are clipping where they should
catch and hold, thus thumping as the drum turns. To fix this, I simply
took high temp epoxy from the hardware store and glued the two
together. (youll see it if you take it apart) Yes, if the lint thing
goes bad, ill have to buy both parts though it cost me a failed service
call and about an hour with less than $20 for the fix. Well worth the
possible issue down the line.
From here, I should note that the lint will need a little help. Clean out as much as you can (make sure its unplugged, 220v is no joke) The vent fan is all part of the same belt/motor as far as I can tell. I took a vac and shoved it in the back and slowly turned the fan thing by hand. It sucks, it's not going to get it all, but if you get enough, it should work to blow the rest out.
If this doesn't make sense or you'd like pics, email me. s kleman at g mail. with no spaces in the email...
