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,
