What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Bought this dryer 3 days ago, so I can't attest to the longevity of the appliance but was looking for a basic dryer that did what it needed to do. My samsung blew out after 4 years (we purchased 3 year protection), which had more options of steam, rack, eco, sensor etc. that we really didnt need, but what are these options if it doesn't last. I've read some complaints on the sensor dry and have to agree that the clothes stop when they're way too damp, but heavy duty normal gets the job done. It was an affordable dryer with a dash of modern/luxury style design...love that the buttons are on the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine Within the first month of replacing our old appliances with new LG washer and dryer our electric bill and water bill went down. With 3 boys we do a lot of laundry so saving $30-40 per month is worth the investment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and efficient! I bought this a month ago and am very happy with it so far. I have a large family and do about 25 loads of laundry a week so I need a dryer that gets the job done! Love how quiet it is and its efficiency in drying time. The musical little signals are an improvement from the loud, buzzing noises other dryers make!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Workhorse I purchased this because of its features, and I needed an upgrade after about 18 years on old Sears model. Still getting used to bells & whistles, but it dries superbly, is quiet and its large drum. Love where the light is located, the ease of opening/closing door and general shape of unit. Hope it lasts many years.

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

If this does not resolve the matter, then the dryer may require service.

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.
