Take a 2 inch putty knife and slide in the separation gap just above the door.  There are 2 catches on each of the panel about 3 inches from each side.  Push in to release the catch and the top panel will pop open.

Newer LG front load gas clothes dryer. power hooked up dryer controls light and operate. gas hooked up and flowing. i hear the igniter light but gas doesnt stay lit. no heat. do i need a special gas dryer...


if you hear the flame light but it doesn't stay on for a long time most likely you have lint blocked up in the dryer or in the vent linepull out the lint screen filter and look down into the duct that the filter slides into,if that's blocked you can try to stick a brush down in there and pull out as much lint as you can and then get a shop vac and set it up to blow and try to blow the rest of the lint out,if this doesn't work you have to pull the front of the dryer off and clean out the duct,also vac and blow out the gas tube and the motor and vac up any lint that's in the cabinet,unplug the dryer,remove the top,then the control panel and then the front panel.put it back together and then go out side and make sure the duct is clear no cage or screen,go back inside,remove the vent line off of the back of dryer,if it's a long run to the outside stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it to the outside,put it back together and you should be fine.this should be done once a year with a gas dryer so you don't have any problems with parts or how it's running and most important you won't have a fire.if you need anymore help let me know.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

You can test the thermostat with the voltmeter...if it tests open then replacing it is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

How do I get to the motor of this dryer? Do I need to get to it from the front of the dryer or the back?


On a rear control LG, from the front. Open door, remove two phillips screws at 4 and 7 O'clock positions, use putty knife to push in clips (2) holding top at front, swing top back, remove two phillips head screws holding front panel cabinet. Disconnect door switch and light plugs, tilt front panel forward and off bottom tabs, allowing sensor at bottom to be un-plugged, thus front panel now completely free of machine. 4 phillips screws hold front bulk head / front drum roller supports to cabinet. Lift up and off. Reach in and remove belt from tension pulley. Drum comes right out, allowing access to motor.

I just cleaned those sensors at the bottom of the filter, it worked like a charm. The dryer is now drying perfectly, I did not know you were not supposed to use fabric sheets with this dryer. Now I know, Thank you for the good information.

LG dryer making unbelievable noise!!! Loud thumping noise. Took top off and drum is cracked seam where it is welded. This may be the cause of the noise.


Same problem here. Half of my LG appliances have failed within 2 years. Stay away from LG!!! They look pretty, though.

Start switch not working


You will have to remove the back panel on the control console, to give you a better visual on the unit go to sears.com/parts and in the model # put your info in then click on control/top panel view. Good luck
