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.

On the white plastic pressure ajusting screw you should see a nut glued into a certain position turn the screw down untill you can not EASILY go any further. That should be the position you need. By the way for all those disassebling one of these front load dryers you have to start by removing the 6 screws on the L bracket from the top, remove the top metal take the two screw off of the plastic control panel, unplug all electrical, remove panel. you wil then see four screws on top of the front door panel, remove them, tilt from section forward lift and remove. under that is a drum support panel, four more screws there, remove them, then disconect internal light and door switch connectors, then you can lift ant pull out fron drum support panel. The drum belt tensioner can then be unloaded then you can remove the drum throught the front. You will then have the gas valve exposed to be able to change. Hope this helps someone. I took the time to type this because I could not find the information anywhere in the net!

Actually you need to adjusted the gas valve setting or the screw you are talking about to the correct manifold pressure while the burners are on. This info you must get from LG it should have came with the oriface conversion kit this is essential as to insure the proper pressure while ignition is in process.
