Interesting problem I encountered - LG dryer.
« on: August 13, 2013, 03:46:21 AM »

I was installing a gas valve on an LG dryer today with controls on backsplash.   When I was done and put it back together,   it was making a wierd clicking noise.    Couldn't figure it out right away.   Took it apart twice.    Then,   I figured it out.   When I went to install vent (machine was on a 1 foot high stand),  I got on top of machine.    Well, the machine is made of too thin of metal and what happened is the front bulkhead spread out a little and rollers were causing a clicking sound because they weren't running true in the drum grooves.  I took bulkhead off,  bent it in a little,  and problem was solved.    First dryer I ever had this problem on.

Not much metal on lg dryers. But I tell my customers dont blame the appliances it is because of the cheaper beer cans they recycle to make em
