Question about LG DLG5988 Stainless Steel Gas Dryer

1 Answer

My DLG5988 IS MAKING A SQUEAKING NOISE AND THUMPING NOISE. I do have mechanical knowledge, but referring to "remove set screw" is pretty ambiguous without a schematic. I've removed a number of screws from my dryer unit, and still can't seem to get any of the panels to budge and be able to open it up and see what's going on inside. The owner's manual is worthless for this type of troubleshooting. Please advise. Thanks bennychickenlegs

The seat belt mechanism is making a squealing noise - I want to get into the mechanism how do I get into the mechanism?


Remove the door frame bottom plate (it pops out). The mechanism is behind the column bezel, just pop out the bottom and so far up to get access to it. If just squeaking, lube it.

Thumping noise and squeaking noise!!!!


rachel you have done quite a bit to fix this dryer. Have checked the the manual for any solution? Check with Kenmor. Seems to me some fine tuning is needed rather than parts.

GE dryer Mod # DWXR463EG1WW is squealing. Does anyone know what is wrong with it and how I can fix it?


Sounds like a rear bearing . remove the 2 screws from the top when you open the door . this way you can take the top off . When you take the top off remove the screws on the inner left and right on the front panel. disconnect the belt from the pulley and motor and pull the drum out . then you will see the rear bearing . cheap fix but can be a pain. good luck

My Asko dryer is thumping loudly. I am finding bits of rubber when the lower panel is removed.


You need to have your drum rollers replaced, they are making the noise because they are falling apart.
Also it could be or include the drum belt breaking down and falling apart...which means its about to break.
Normally pretty cheap parts can be found on the net...look around.
Its a pretty easy fix.

The drum baffle screw has unscrewed itself and the head is thumping against the inside top panel. Pull door, lift lid, rotate drum to find screw sticking out and tighten.
