You will need a helper. Dismantle the Dryer: Remove the screws that hold the top cover, front control panel, front door and front panel. Release the V-Belt under the drum. Remove the Drum. Removed and replace the 2 Front roller assemblies - these were completely worn. Replaced the 2 rear rollers (did not replace the rear roller axels as these were more difficult to remove and they were in good shape) and the V-Belt while I had the whole thing open. Use a shop vac and cleaned up the whole unit. It is so nice and quiet now.

Simply removed the old filter and put in the new one. I was impressed with the sales person when I ordered the filter by phone. The online site didn't have a photo of it - just a description and price. She reassured me that I was ordering the correct item--she was very friendly. And the price was reasonable.

Dryer will not heat up.

My LG electric dryer would not heat up. I went on line and found that the thermostats (there are two) could cause this problem. I used my DVM to ohm out the thermostats and found that the high heat thermostat was open. I replaced this thermostat and the dryer ran for a little while and then quit heating. When I checked the high heat thermostat again I found it to be open again. I then ordered and replaced BOTH thermostats and the dryer has been working well since. The hardest part about this repair was the job of taking the dryer drum out to access the thermostats. I did however get good at doing this.
