#241757 New to me LG Gas dryer with failed duct blockage tests

Well good news. My wife ran the first three loads yesterday, and the dryer performed flawlessly. We will see how it does in the future, but perhaps its fixed. That's crazy lucky of my to find/jump at that craig's list deal. Fan-freaking-tastic. A super big thanks to John63 and Kdog. Awesome work.

The above pic shows the re-oriented dryer ductwork inlet.

So, I popped out the covers on the back of the dryer and removed the tube that was the original centerline outlet. I made sure no wires were behind the area that I needed to cut, then I measured and then dremeled a 4" hole in the sheetmetal at the back of the dryer. I cut off both ends of the original tube to re-use them and built a new internal tube to run to the rear left corner of my dryer. It has two 45° angles. I then installed the "new" dryer in the old spot. The flex hose is nearly compressed solid in the new config and runs straight with no turns.

I built a computer model of the dryer ductwork this morning at work. Took about 10 minutes and is easier to tell what I did.Attached File  Dryer ductwork.jpg   50.84KB   12 downloads

No, my brother in law made a watermellon salad at a birthday party one time and dived into a swimming pool with it on his head.

A few years later, he told me that he had always wanted to carve a Norman helm. So he and I had a carve-off at a 4th of July picnic at a lake. I fashioned a spartan helm from the movie "300."

btw, I am in Sugar Land Texas, pretty darn far from Saskachewan.
