Other then that I love it. I love all the options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and Energy Efficient This dyer has been incredible in how quick it will dry your clothes. Being energy efficient is just another plus for this machine. This machine has built in sensors determining how long it will take to dry which is usually about half the time as compared to other machines. We are extremely pleased with the quality and workmanship of this LG product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet Bought this about a month ago. It's really quiet. We like the sanitizing feature. We misunderstood the description and thought the door swung down as well but we'll manage.

Can i get any brand pedestal for this?

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 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.

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.
