Here is the actual service manual in case someone else needs it.  It appears to be pretty much the same as the one you said would be.

Not sure if I posted it right.

Not just a flat roller a busted roller from the center out.  I am going to try to get a pick of it to upload.  I have never had these kind of problems with dryers in the past.  This dryer is only 2 years old. ridiculous!

It happened very quickly actually started with a squeak sound and within a couple days the loud noise started.  I noticed two front rollers so far is that correct? or is there a third?  I can see one back one without taking the back off yet.  The roller that went bad is the one in front just under the lint catch part of the drum.  The other front roller seems intake. Would you recommend replacing all or just the bad one? Also found it odd that if not a third roller how is it in balance? Oh well I will learn more as I disassemble it. What was really strange is it started right after having a new washer installed I know just fluke.  I am not liking LG products much at this point.  Are Whirlpool dryers good if and when I decide to replace the LG?

Krazytech,

After looking at the service manual more closely looks like 2 front 2 back. 

Thanks,
Cindi

I like to change all rollers once I get it all apart . you have 2 in the back and 2 in the front. I would have a close look at the drum.. check it at the seam once you have it apart.. a little crack will get large once it gets hot so look real close...have seen split drum destroy many rollers...

with dryer all brand have there little problems...

Well I have already grown tired LG.  We have already replaced LG TROMM washer.  Looked pretty, but had way too many places for sludge to hide even when tub clean was used regularly.  >:(  As crazy as it sounds I went back to a agitator based washer because I wanted the pet hair off our clothes.  Cabrio had a large one where I could still select water levels if I wanted to.  So far very happy with it.  We will be looking for a sale on Cabrio dryer soon.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Not intentionally but please do explain?  :rofl:
Guessing you don't like Cabrio dryers? or washers?
What is your opinion on the best dryer? I remember when my dryers lasted at least 5 years before needing a repair. 
Also any opinions on vent in door versus top?  Seems like this dryer doesn't remove as much from the clothes as previous dryers did.

Thanks,
Cindi
