This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great dryer! We are so pleased with our new LG dryer. It's large capacity makes it quicker and more economical to get all of our laundry done. The variety of settings accommodates our needs nicely. We have a small laundry room and feared a full size dryer would not fit, but this dryer fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, Efficient Bought an LG washer last year and replaced my old dryer with this model.. Settings compliment what is on the washer so choosing dryer setting was a breeze. My husband recently retired and had never done laundry before. These settings have made it so easy for him to learn how to do laundry. Thanks LG for making a great product. It dries clothes well and in less time than my old dryer. Happy with LG products. Would definitely recommend.

Is there a pedestal drawer compatible with this dryer DLE1001W?

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.

How can I dry shoes?

Asked by: Ying
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.

Drying cycle is not completing on some loads?

displays something like this [ _ _ ] rolling around,
Asked by: Kristieh
I found if you do not use the sensor settings, you might run into this problem. When you decide the length of time needed to dry your clothes you could be off, and the sensor won't do its job. Try using the sensor settings. They always work for me. Good luck.
