RE: Samsung Front Load Gas Dryer. DV42H5200GW. T his should have been an easy install, but plastic gas fitting seems to have cracked. I was just connecting my existing gas line to the dryer, and I may have over tightened the fitting as I heard a slight crack or squeak and now the plastic fitting on dryer is turning as I turn the line fitting. I will now remove the back panel to investigate, but I cannot afford to hire a pro.

It's possible that the plastic part is intended to spin like a female garden hose end does. To check for leaks, drizzle soapy water over the connection. Without photos or a better description of the problem I can't say much more.

  • Sorry, I meant water line - this is a gas dryer with a steam option. So this is the water fitting that has broken. – Ellen Mar 24 '17 at 14:19
  • Please edit your post to correct that. – isherwood Mar 24 '17 at 15:28
