Try this approach.. with the dryer situated so that you can access the back of it.. look at where the top cover projects over the back..directly beneath that is 3 screws that when removed ,..should allow you to slide the top back and release it from the chassis.. Once that has been done, you should be able to remove the front panel ( after you undo the lint trap screws with the door open ).. You can tilt the front panel away from the cabinet to unhook the door switch.. than you should be able to lift the front panel assembly up and off the guides on the bottom.. Once it is set aside, you should have access to everything you need from the front.. Hope that helps...

I have the same problem; pulled it apart and discovered the drum was cracked at the seam where it was welded. the noise occurs as it passes over the wheels the drum rests on. called LG's Cusomer Diservice and nobody was interested. found the same problems by others while searching myself so its clearly a manufacturing problem.

SOURCE: Crack in drum at seam
We had the exact same problem with our LG dryer but the crack was in the front near the door. The service tech as well as the engineer from the LG R&D department both agree that it is a manufacturing defect...the result of a poor welding job by LG. The service tech replaced the dryer tub today and the dryer is as quiet as when we first bought it. I paid for the part and the repair myself to get it fixed quickly. The service tech said to use it with the crack could be a fire hazard since the heating element is open under the tub. However, the service company we use will reimburse me for the cost of the part if LG agrees to reimburse them. I am in the process of working with the resolution department to get them to agree to pay for this part. It is no longer under warranty but since there engineer has agreed that it is a manufacturer defect, I am hopeful I will get my money back!
