LG dryer Mod no. DLG8388nb

The door gasket has come loose.

I removed all the screws in the door panel,but can not figure out how to separate the door components to reattach the gasket.

I can not find a procedure in the manuals on this site.

Help a brother out.

How does the door come apart?

Check the model number, please.... SearsPartsDirect isn't showing anything for that.


What is the simplest, dumbest explanation? Because that's the most probable one.

That IS the model number.

It is listed on Repair Clinic along with the video to disassemble the door.

Guess I just didn't put enough pressure on it to separate it.

<<<Guess I just didn't put enough pressure on it to separate it.>>>

 

***************************

 

Correct.

 

Use a small flat screwdiver to pry apart the inner cover (best done near the hinge area).


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Customer is Happy.

I am Happy.

A more forceful prying at the hinge location made the difference.

Popped right off.

Thanks guys.
