What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. My wife never thought about using a dryer, but I told her it is an American custom to own a dryer. When we got it, we were super-happy. I thought my wife will criticize me for having a dryer since in Korea, nobody uses a dryer in Korea. When we got the dryer, she could not believe how much it made her life so much easier. She put a big smile on her face getting the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, large drum Love how large this drum is. I can dry 2 loads comparable to my last dryer. Use the quick time functions. Like the signal at completion instead of a typical buzzer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful controls I am very happy with the dryer. The controls let me pick and choose the temp. (high - medium - or low). I like the ability to also add more or less time with the controls.

My dryer keeps cycling when it is off. Only way to stop it is unplugging it or opening door. Can I fix this myself!? Very upset this is just 2 yrs old.

Why is my clothes taking long to dry..??, I put like 5 stuff in the dryer for 30 minutes and when I went to go take it out it was still dry.!!! Please help

Asked by: Fplw
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. If the items from your load are still wet after a cycle, then it is suggested to check the lint filter and exhaust duct, to make sure they are clear. If they are clear, and the load is still wet, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

just purchased received no Manuel and it's saying check folter?

Asked by: Dee27
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. According to the information in your owner’s manual, the DISPLAY panel will show CHECK FILTER when the dryer is turned on as a reminder to check the filter. It turns off when the START/PAUSE button is pressed. This is normal operation.

New dryer only had a few months. The dryer didn't turn off at end of cycle, instead it had three dashes. I pushed every button, even held down a few and it would do nothing. Finally I unplugged it. Now it won't turn back on, but the light inside is on.

Asked by: Jk0607
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. Which buttons were held down in your attempt to use the machine? Some of these could have activated a key lock, which can prevent operations. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Hi, I am wondering why my lg dryer is not going through the complete cycle. I have is set for a normal cotton load for drying andbthat is a 41 minute cycle however after few minutes on this cycle is drops don't to 19 which isn't normal . 

Asked by: Nella
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. The change in the timed drying cycle can be caused by a clogged filter or exhaust hose. It is recommended to check each. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Maximum venting distance?

Asked by: kev120000011122
The ductwork and venting for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sleek Contemporary Design (Electric), Model # DLE1101W must conform to your local building codes. Depending on what type of wall cap you have and whether you have elbows or not, the maximum length of 4-inch diameter rigid metal duct can run from 65 feet down to 28 feet or from 55 feet down to 22 feet. You would need to deduct 6 ft. (1.8 m) for each additional elbow and it is not recommended to use more than four 90° elbows...^IFV
