If you ever experience an issue with your LG dryer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

A revolutionary spin on laundry.

A revolutionary spin on laundry.

LG puts a modern design spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 416 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new dryer I have no complaints about my new washer. I love how it senses when the load is dry and stops the cycle before overheating the load. The many options on the control panel make it very easy to customize your cycle. August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Dryer WOW! I don't know why I waited so long to buy LG, all my products will be LG now!!! July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dryer! The dryer has so many easy to use automatic settings. It does a great job of drying and is very energy efficient. It is also very quiet when running. I would recommend this LG pronuct to anyone. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by this dryer has large capacity We are very happy with this dryer. The large capacity is very handy especially when you have queen comforters to dry. The front control panel is very easy to understand and use. With all the choices on load size, temperature control and time every load is done exactly right. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME DRYER This dryer has saved us money on our electric bill! The drying time is quite shorter than our old dryer. The capacity is perfect for our needs. The controls are easy to use. We are very happy with this dryer. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love our new LG dryer This dryer is very easy to use. Do not be intimidated by the electronic controls on this dryer. We did not want or need a steam feature so this was the dryer for us. The drum is spacious. The operation of this dryer is VERY QUIET!! With all the cycles on this dryer there is a setting for your most demanding drying needs. I reversed the swing on the dryer door without any problem. The control settings are up front so there is no more reaching across the top of the dryer to a rear mounted control panel. I am not anticipating any immediate problems with this dryer but there is a self diagnosis mode whereby the dryer can communicate to a LG Service Center over the phone (without any hard connection). All these features are topped of by this being a well designed, high quality and well constructed LG dryer. We love it!! July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dryer is amazing This dryer dries very quickly and removes even our pets hair from our clothes July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use, drys excellent The controls are very easy to use, not confusing at all. The variety of choices allows you to pick the exact drying control that you need. It drys clothes completely on the first cycle with no need for additional drying. July 5, 2014

Answer: 
Yup, you need to buy them. It did not come with the hoses. That said, they are very cheap and easily obtained at Home Depot (though Best Buy sells them too).

Yes. If you buy the washer at Best Buy, they should provide you with all of the accessories you need. About a $90 cost

Answer: 
Most washers include hot/cold water hose. Since you are posting this question with a dryer and I am not certain which washer you are interested in, please refer to the correct model number of the washer which you are inquiring about. This way we will be able to look up if it comes with cold/hot water hoses or if you would have to purchase them extra. Thank you.

Answer: 
You can open it to the right or switch it and open it to the left...depending which side your washer is on to make it easier to transfer clothes. It doesn't not fold down..just left or right.

During installion you can decide what direction is best for your door to open. I bet you can move the hinges on the door to either side as it suits your needs.

Answer: 
I purchased this dryer 6 weeks ago and I also tried to open it by pulling it down the first couple of times. It is a little deceiving but mine does open to the right and if you want to you can reverse it to open to the left. It really is a great dryer!

Answer: 
Yes, it does open to the side... and reversible means that you can change the hinges - so if needed, the door can open to the other side :)

Answer: 
The Sales Representative was correct. We do not recommend the use of dryer sheets in our washing machines as the fibers being pulled off the sheets can form a layer on the moisture sensors and not allow proper operation of the unit. If fabric softener is needed, we recommend using a liquid fabric softener in the appropriate compartment in the LG washing machine.

I need to see installation diagrams for dryer DLE1101W, especially for side and bottom alternatives for vent. There is no information on your website and the manual and instructions are not listed in the "manuals" section. I would also like to know recommended clearances for space between washer + dryer. Thank you for your help.

Answer: 
I used a periscope style vent from the dryer's center bottom outlet to my house vent line off to the end of the dryer. It required about 2.5 inches of space to the rear of the dryer. Air flow is very good with this arrangement.

On the washer side of the dryer I have a half inch of clearance between them - no problems.

Answer: 
I have very little space between washer and dryer. They seem very solid and don't move at all when in operation, It appears that there is an area for a side vent, but I use the back vent. Do not see anything for a bottom vent.
