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?

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.
