Improvements over time (usually but not always).

As best as I can determine--"A" is NLA

B,C,E,F,G are interchangeable.

D is showing as a separate part but may also be interchangerable--a phone call to parts research can confirm this.

I know people hate resuscitating old threads, but I found your website directly from a Google search, and I have the exact same issue. For people like me that research problems and start threads as a last resort, putting all the useful information in a single thread is so much more useful than multiple threads with only one showing the answer!

My dryer (LG TROMM DLE2515S) uses drum 3045EL1002D, which is apparently no longer made and doesn't show to be compatible with drums of those other revisions. I have a guy on craigslist selling a broken dryer for $50 that uses drum 3045EL1002F. I have emailed LG to ask if they are compatible, but I deeply expect the customer support will simply read off the compatibility list which no doubt all the other parts websites use that don't list D compatible with the others.

John63 suggested "a phone call to parts research can confirm this.". I feel that's what I've done by emailing LG, but if anyone knows better please let me know! Aside from physically examining the two drums, is there any other ways I can test their compatibility?

Many, many thanks,


Daf

LG responded quickly and with somewhat useful information! Revision J is compatible with revision D, and otherwise (presumably) the rest are only compatible with each other. That allowed me to find this site:
https://www.appliancezone.com/ShowProduct.aspx?ID=53596

After tax and shipping the full cost was under $100, which really wasn't bad at all since the cheapest I could find the revision D drum was $150 after tax and shipping!

Thanks for the fast response AJ.

Good for you.

It's just to bad the place you decided to purchase the part from does not help support our site like our other parts affiliates.

Thanks for the update though. The information is much appreciated.  O0
