Converting back to nat gas from propane


Typically, conversion from natural to propane and visa-versa is just a simple connection behind the appliance. Look in the box of the conversion kit (or on the back of the packaging,) and you should see the conversion instructions. Since you are dealing with gas, you need to make sure the shut-off valve is... shut off so no gas can leak while do the exchange. Also, make sure there are not open flames anywhere near the work area. Take your time and follow the directions...

You can get the conversion kit. It will tell you how to convert the dryer. I recommend that you get a technician to do it though.

WITH LOCAL CODES AND ORDINANCE

GE Gas dryer getting too hot


The gas burner valve is not the correct one for LP gas. You have to convert the valve as well as the orifices. The clicking is because it is over heating and cycling on and off o the high limit (safety thermostat)

LG gas dryer to convert in propane


If you replaced the orifice on the gas valve, then you must screw down on the adjustment screw on top of the valve.  Use a flat screwdriver and screw down the pressure adjustment screw till it stops in the down position.  Then the valve is set for propane use.
