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...
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!

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

I should have been more specific about which models. Please accept apologies.
Still,Cabrio is better than LG.

You should go to a home depot or lowes and get a plain Jane ROPER washer and dryer. Get em without the bells and whistles. All your headaches will go away. I am not saying they won't break down, everything does, but you won't have to take out a second mortgage to get them repaired and you can fix em yourself without having to get a PHD or become a rocket scientist. My opinion.

So we took the tub out of the LG dryer and the felt gasket on the side the roller busted on appears to have a slight defect in one portion of it. It is almost thicker or just distorted in that area.  Could this have caused a the wobble that broke the roller to begin with or is that unlikely.  No spilt in the weld of the drum.

Thanks,
Cindi

Are you using the correct vent pipe? If you have the incorrect stuff that could have caused the dryer to buildup excessive heat and created that problem.

Well the roller that broke is closest to gas ignition I believe.  That is also where we found all the metal shavings.  We are using a good vent pipe as far as i can tell from dryer to wall and have cleaned the outside line but this house is 18 years old.  Maybe not the best line to outside as far as being intact.  This is one of the things I was going to look into having changed out with smooth pipe.  it goes through the garage and out and the previous owners boxed it in with dry wall so we can not see the pipe itself only where it comes out the side of the house and it appears to open properly.  There was quiet a bit of dust on the inside of the machine which surprised me.  I vacuumed out the blower wheel but did not take it completely apart would you suggest taking the wheel off or is that overkill?


Thanks,
Cindi

I would clean out the vent to outside, and clean the lint filter before each new load.

Really quick question anyone.  Does the LG drum have a back versus front? and does it rotate clockwise or counter clockwise once the  belt is attached to the pully?  We think we installed backwards.

Thanks,
Cindi

All you gotta do is look at the line on the drum that the belt makes.
