Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Dryer I really like this dryer, but I use the timed drying instead of the auto dry sensory. Sometimes the cloths were not dry when I use the sensory dry but all in all, it is a wonderful product.

This model has not been discontinued, so much as replaced by different models with different feature sets. Product failures are not common, with this unit, but should something happen, we are still ready to assist with this model.

The door catch broke on dryer m # DLG4802W. How do I get and install a new one?

Asked by: Demps
A door catch can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at http://www.mcmelectronics.com/content/en-US/forms/lg_parts. The part is called a locker assembly and the part number is 4027EL1001C. There should be instructions on how to install the part in the dryer. If the part does not have any instructions, you may need to contact a professional service technician to install the part for you.

Where can I find a tech to convert my DLG4802W dryer to LP?

Store where purchased says they will not do it
Asked by: Waynesworldboca
A licensed service technician or a certified plumber should both be capable of the conversion between Natural Gas and Liquid Propane. If you wish to contact a licensed service technician, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Do you have any recommendations or specifications for selecting a gas dryer connector?

We are considering an LG DLG4802W to replace our existing/non functioning gas dryer. It seems like there are any number of accessories that could be purchased to help install it. I just need a little more detailed direction. I did see the info on the vent! Thank you!

How do I take the front off to clean the interior of the dryer. I've had problems with other dryers that accumulate lint beyond the lint screen

I've been told to clean inside the guts of the dryer. I do it with my stackable lg at work. Lint gets beyond the lint screen and accumulates inside. How do I access it. Thanks
Asked by: carolyn44
I apologize, but the removal of the front panel of the dryer by anyone other than an authorized service technician, for any reason, can result in voiding the manufacturer’s warranty on the product. At this location, we are not technicians, and as such, cannot provide information regarding accessing the interior of the unit.

For the LG 7.1 electric dryer -- is the a side vent internal kit?

Asked by: Paull
Your new dryer is shipped to vent to the rear. It can also be configured to vent to the bottom or side (right-side venting is not available on gas models). An adapter kit, part number 383EEL9001B, may be purchased from your LG retailer. This kit contains the necessary duct components to change the dryer vent location. http://www.lg.com/us/support/find-parts
