Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic dryer Best most efficient dryer I've ever owned!! I'd recommend this dryer to anyone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer! I have had my new dryer for only a week, but I am already in love! I was so worried our large capacity washer would give us loads that couldn't be dried all at once but that is NOT the case. This dryer works very well and I love the sensored drying setting. This is the best electric dryer I have ever owned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Dryer We keep buying LG and this dryer is the quite'est we you will ever find anywhere. Excellent product and runs so smooth you can't hardly tell it's running unless you are standing by it. Ditto the LG dish washer we purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a lot of features to choose from. i bought this in July, 2016 & i still love it. I can put a king size comforter in it with no problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the washer...the dryer, not so much. The washer is great, no problems. The dryer, no matter what size of laundry I do, it shuts off before they are dry, every single time. Sometimes I have to restart several times to get load fully dry. Definitely would NOT buy this dryer again! I own lg televisions and other products and would highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dlex2801w electric steam dryer I bought this dryer thinking most of the wrinkles in my clothes would dry out. NO, they did not. My problem with this dryer is that the lint filter fills up and anything with a string attached to it tears up. Had to replace several items already. Cleaning out the bottom of the lint filter is impossible Yes I clean each and every time I dry clothes. Wish I had my old dryer back.

Can i get any brand pedestal for this?

Asked by: Jsreaves5
LG Pedestals are specifically designed for Select LG Front Load Washers and Select LG Front Load dryers and those washers and dryers will not fit on other brands. LG Top Load Dryers such as this ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control Dryer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # DLE1501W are not compatible with LG Laundry Pedestals and they are not designed to fit other brands...^IFV

We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. If the dryer is not operating properly, it is suggested to deactivate the local circuit breaker, and allow it to sit for about 45 seconds before reconnecting it. If this does not resolve the matter, then the dryer 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.

Is it safe to put a laundry basket on top of this dryer? I see that it has metal lines across the top, behind the controls. Are these some kind of sensor? 

Asked by: Mustard seed
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. There are no sensors in place on the upper surface of the machine. While there should be no trouble with placing a basket on the surface of the machine, please keep in mind that the basket can scratch the surface, and is angled so that the basket may not prove to be level and/or stable.

Our brand new lg dryer dle1501w will not get hot, the cool light stays on all the time and clothes won't get dry, why won't the dryer hear up? 

Asked by: TiffW
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is not normal for the COOLING light to stay on constantly. Check the filter and the exhaust duct to make sure all air flow is unobstructed. Otherwise, the machine will 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.
