What People Are Saying

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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good dryer for the money Drys most loads well, seems to have problems drying a small light load. The cycle is too fast and not drying them completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice dryer This unit is exceptionally quiet. I works very well and the settings are easy to work with. If you are going to install your own wiring read the owners manual. The machine ground wire gets moved from the chassis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer Like the front controls, had to show hubby how to change settings after years with dials. Door opens to side and lint trap inside - both are features I wanted. Wish the top was flat instead of sloping forward. Otherwise, I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drys Great I bought the washer and dryer about a month ago and I love this dryer. My only complaint is that I have to do timed dry for my blankets because the sensor thinks there dry when there not. All my other stuff gets dried in a timely manner which I love! Great buy.

After wiring and plugging in to wall what do i do next

Asked by: jhale
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. Once the power cord has been wired and connected securely, and the vent hose has been properly installed, close the door, press the ON/OFF button to turn the dryer on, and start the dryer on a heat setting. The exhaust air should be warm after the dryer has been operating for 3 minutes. This information is found on page 26 of the owner’s manual.

Asked by: cmrizek
Yes, I found one at the Lowe's in our community. It has to be an LG pedestal though. You cannot mix brands.

We appreciate your interest in this dryer and its operations. It is recommended to check the care label on the shoes before attempting to place them in a dryer. It is also recommended that they not be allowed to tumble in the drum, as this can damage the machine.
