What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dries in great time Dries clothes well. Nmdamoness even with large loads

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with an LG appliance My DLE1001W dryer was a gift to myself for Christmas, yes I'm a practical person when it comes to gifts. I've been using my dryer for over a month and just love it, haven't got a complaint & I'm sure I never will because this is my 3rd LG dryer. I love the huge dryer drum, drying comforters are such a breeze now. I thought the control on the top towards the front was going to be a pain but it's convenient after all. Don't understand why the top of the dryer slopes forward but it still holds clothes without sliding off. Just got to buy myself a new LG dishwasher then all my appliances with be LG, keep up the fantastic work LG!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I bought this 2 years ago and all of a sudden it stops working. Serious problems finding out what is wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet & drys well This dryer is quiet and automatically stops when the clothes are dry. The control panel was intimidating at first sight. I read the instructions and it is actually pretty easy to set the controls. It drys a load faster than I thought it would. For my use it takes about 35 minutes per load. With the traditional dryer it used to take about an hour per load. Love the tune it plays when done (instead of an annoying buzzer). I have a laundry closet that is a tad less than 30" deep. This dryer is the only full sized one I could find that would fit and that could be adapted to vent out the bottom. Sears adapted it to vent out the bottom at no extra charge (they would also adapt dryers to side vent). I am very happy with this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Dryer This Dryer is the best dryer I ever owned. Would never buy anything but an LG Dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! Got this dryer recently and when we got it home and hooked up, I immediately used the FlowSense Duct diagnostic...it showed four bars, which indicated we had restricted airflow. Today we did a full duct cleaning and I re-ran the sensor and no bars! I had seen a review saying the sensor kept showing restricted flow even after duct cleaning, but this works beautifully for me. It is a great feature! As for the rest of the dryer performance (and the matching washer), I am very happy with the range of cycles and features. This W/D set was at a good price point and so far does a great job with our laundry. We are very happy with the LG appliances and as we replace our old models, will probably keep buying LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable Our old dryer would occasionally leave a load damp when set in the mode for detecting the moisture. This dryer has not failed us.

I have my LG front loading WM3670HWA washer on a pedestal. Can I put my LG DLE1001W on a pedestal also, do they can be the same height?

Asked by: Drewskiupinhere
I apologize, but no; this dryer was designed to be matched with one of our Top Loading Washing Machines. As the Top Load machines are not designed for compatibility with a pedestal, this dryer has also not been configured for such an installation.

Code 640

Asked by: Manuel361
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. This model has not been designed with a Code 640. It could, however, be a d90 code. If the d90 code is presented on the display, the indication is that the exhaust duct is roughly about 90% obstructed. If there are additional questions about this situation, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Can this dryer be vented thru the bottom?

Asked by: Apg2017
The LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Dryer with Distinct and Modern Front Control Design (Electric), Model # DLE1001W is shipped from the factory configured to vent to the rear. It can also be configured to vent from the sides or the bottom and you will need an adapter kit, part # 383EEL9001B or part # 3911EZ9131X to change the dryer vent location...^IFV

How  do u change from 4 wire connection to a three?

Asked by: Marie grider
The LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Dryer with Distinct and Modern Front Control Design (Electric), Model # DLE1001W has its own terminal block that must be connected to a separate 240 VAC, 60-Hertz single-phase circuit fused at 30 amperes. A 4 -wire connection is required for all new construction after January 1, 1996 or where local codes do not permit grounding through the neutral wire. The latest edition of the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70 does not permit a 3-wire connection on new construction after January 1, 1996. You will want to consult a qualified electrician or check with your building inspector to see if your local codes allow a 3-wire connection in your area...^IFV

Dryer continues to run after cycle ends. Only way to stop it is the leave the door open. Dryer heats and dries clothes during cycle. But continues to turn the drum until is opened. 

Asked by: MaceyB
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. The description provided suggests that the WRINKLE CARE function may be active. This feature is designed to tumble a load periodically for up to 3 hours after completion of the selected cycle, or until the door is opened. If this does not appear to be the case, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

My dryer has a smiley face and a lock showing in red. My dryer I can't start it

Asked by: infiniti036
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. According to page 11 of the owner’s manual, this is the CHILD LOCK INDICATOR. Once set, the CHILD LOCK will remain active until it is manually deactivated. To do so, press and hold the DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds, according to the note on page 33 of manual.

My dryer has a mildew smell. Why?  How to get rid of the smell?

Asked by: LHull
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is recommended to check the lint filter and ensure that the exhaust duct is clear, as these are the primary locations for moisture to collect, if the drum is clear. Leave the door on the dryer open to allow it to air out and gain a fresher scent.
