Question about LG DLE7177 Dryer

Open Question

My LG DLE7177WM has a huge tear in the drum and it sounds like shoes or something heavy is inside while turning. Is there a manual that will tell me take it apart and replace the drum?

SOURCE: i have an lg dle7177wm

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...

SOURCE: LG DLE7177WM began making loud RuMbLiNg sound.

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!

Dryer is "eating" clothes; how do we fix it?


I suggest you find someone to "get inside" the machine drum and find out what is damaging the clothes. I could not find the machine in "Sears Parts" to look at the drum. (They have pictures for most all US machines). I am not sure the drum might not need to be removed to repair it. There should be something there that is "snagging" the clothes and could be sanded down or smoothed somehow. If it has removable "paddles" to tumble the clothes, sometimes one could come loose and need tightening. I have seen heavy objects like large tennis shoes loosen a paddle.
Be blessed.

Our LG washer is 4-5 years old. All of a sudden there is a slight scraping noise when the drum is turned. I can feel no resistance when turned by hand. It sounds like something may be between the stainless...


My LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer had the same problem, I took it apart and it turned out to be heavy corrosion on the drum. just sand it back and it will be as good as new

Bumping sound when operating like a shoe is inside.


drum rollers,drum glides or belt idler assembly, all these items can be found on eBay. note the routing of the belt, the idler assemblage is next to the motor. this website shows the rollers/glides and how to open the dryer, hope this helped Tim:

When spin starts - sounds like drum will detach. very load and shakes the whole room.


You have an uneven load in the drum, for example a shoe or something heavy that should not be in the washing.

LG DLE3777W dryer thumps when running . It sounds like there are tennis shoes in the drum.


Probable cause is the bearing on the wheel that turns the drum is worn out. They are easy to replace and should cost less than $25. for the part.
Remove the front of the dryer and turn the drum by hand, you should be able to tell which side is worn.
Be sure and unplug first.

My dryer drum is no longer turning when I press start.


When you turn it on, can your still hear the motor running but the drum doesn't spin? If so, yes, the belt could have broken or slipped off the pulley.

With my dryer, putting in a pair of shoes often makes it turn off. I hear it tumble for a while and then and then I hear a squeal and then the dryer turns off.

I have seen a device that can be put inside a dryer and adjusted to fit tight between the diameter of the drum and will allow you to put shoes on it. This solves the CLUMP - CLUMP - CLUMP issue.

If you don't hear the motor, its possible there is a blown fuse. have you checked your breaker panel too?

Good luck,
- Jim
