I am trying to crack this open so I can change it to LP gas.  The included instruction are clearly not for this model.  Anyone know the secret?

Unsure how to disassemble dryer?

Or not sure of how to convert from natural gas to propane?
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"

Judging from your photos---the front cover is ready to be pulled forward and lift up.

Once the front cover has been set aside---the front drum support (2nd cover) can be removed by removing 4 screws from the
"ears" on the sides.

There's usually at least one additional screw located at the blower housing which must also be removed.

Ack, I got so discombobulated, I didn't even post the right model.  It should be DLG1102W.

 

Your videos explain the conversion process pretty well, I just can't get to where the burner is.  I got the top off, but I can't see how the front is secured.  The instructions that came with the new nozzle describe the opening process but the pictures and text resemble models that have a round, clear door and controls that are front facing, not upward facing but at the front of the top surface as is with my model.

How much force should it take to pull it forward?  I am afraid if I yard on it any harder I am going to bend it and live the rest of my life in the doghouse.
