What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 218 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hard Working Dryer This dryer is very attractive -- especially next to its matching washer. I advise against buying the stand to raise the height, because together, the two machines make a very good folding surface. If the laundry is removed immediately after you hear the lovely tune which tells when the load is finished, the laundry is ready for folding with minimal ironing needed. I have found that the sensor sometimes declares things, which are still damp, to be dry, although the TOWELS setting always finishes drying bath towels. April 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy courtesy of a neighbor We were thinking about replacing our 11 year old Maytag dryer, and stopped at Lowes. We were looking and liked the LGs. The girl manning the department on a Sunday morning was the daughter of our neighbor and a house sitter and friend for a decade plus. We told her what we wanted and she told us to hang on and hauled us to the desk. They had a one only, closeout dryer at 45% off. So she helped us find a great, top of the line model for less than the mid-range machines we were considering. We got a lot more bells and whistles to learn, but we are really happy with our dryer!! February 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Many great settings I bought this dryer along with an LG washer and am very pleased with both. I like it can sense when the load is dry and the many very useful settings for fabric type, low to high temperature, timed settings and more. The lint trap is very easy to access. I am completely happy with this dryer and would happily recommend it. February 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sensor Problems This dryer takes cares of large loads efficiently. My only problem with this dryer is that I have to periodically take out the lint filter and wipe that thin area inside the machine with a damp cloth. The sensor gets "clogged" and the dryer will run and run way after the clothes are dry. December 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer for the price I bought the set of the LG washer and dryer. The dryer is pretty good. The sensor for drying come sin handy so there are never any damp clothes in the dryer. The only downfall I have found in the last two years of owning this is towels. When drying towels they don't always get dry and have to be ran through a second time which is annoying at times. Even though the towels are an issue I still love this dryer and would recommend it to anyone. November 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best washer we have ever purchased we purchased a new washer and dryer best washer and dryer we have ever owned. Mike & Mary Jo Tesch November 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Great appliance Great capacity I can wash a king size conforter, has a many options to choose from depending on the type of fabric, if necessary the program Will readjust automatically so it will continue the cycle or stop on its own when the clothes is dry (sensor dry) Great looks modern silent love it! Look for sales and coupons bought it at Best buy. October 30, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't Waste Your Money I've had this dryer for just under two years, just two. It worked fine overall - just took forever to dry towels. After under two years the electrical went completely dead and the repair is half the price of the dryer's value and not worth the money. Save your money on this, spend a little more and get a better quality product. October 11, 2014

Why can I not select my own settings???

I have the DLEX2470 Dryer. I am getting ready to return this dryer.

The reason I am getting ready to return it is the discovery of very important featurs, or lack thereof, that you will ALWAYS find in dirt-cheap dyers.

1. You cannot dry cotton on low heat. You adjust the dial to cotton, medium is the lowest heat you can go. Not good if you have clothes that you are not trying to shrink.

2. The dryer cannot sense automatically if a load is dry...unless it is slam full. This is not an automatic dryer if it will not do this for you...regardless of the load size.

3. You can only do a low heat setting by selecting permanent press...which means it will only dry according to a timer...which means that you can have your clothes over-dry. You can add time, but that will only cook your clothes.

I never thought I would pay $1,000 for a dryer where I could not select the settings.

Very, very poor design.

Oh yeah...and the matching washer leaves clothes that stink...I am using Tide and Downy...both major brands. I miss having clean clothes.

Answer: 
We regret the difficulty you have experienced with these products. The preset settings on the dryer are designed according to the recommendations of clothing manufacturers. It is for this reason, as well as an attempt to not ruin the clothing materials, that certain options are locked at specific settings. As for the washing machine, it is recommended to check that the detergent being used is labeled as a HIGH EFFICIENCY detergent. If it is not, then the unit will generate too many soap suds which can develop mildew, and thereby cause an odor in your laundry. If this does not appear to be the case, then the unit may need 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....

Answer: 
You have asked this question on the wrong page. This page is for DLE2250W dryer, and it is not a true steam dryer. Please verify the model number of your unit and post your question under that dryer model. However in my old dryer I would soak a clean towel, wring it out as best I could, and throw it into the dryer and let it operate for a few minutes on the heat cycle, open and remove the shirts and hang them up on plastic hangers immediately. Wrinkles are gone.

Answer: 
When clothes come out wrinkled, it is typically caused by one of two events: either the clothes have dried too long or the clothes are left in the unit too long after the cycle ends. Some possible solutions to this matter are trying a shorter drying time, and removing the items while they still retain a slight amount of moisture; or remove items from the dryer immediately at the end of the cycle. If this unit has it, you may also try using the WRINKLE CARE option to continue tumbling clothes at the end of the cycle.

Answer: 
YES, there is a light, at least in my DLE2250W dryer. As to the light, perhaps it is operating but you can't see it lit. The door must be open for the light to operate, and the room must be dark to see it, I only noticed the light that way. I was suprised when one day I left the dryer door opened and turned the laundry room light off, and there it was, a dryer light. I frankly think it has no use at all, but that's just me. As to replacing the bulb I have no idea, maybe someone else could help you, interesting that it is not in the manuals, are you sure. A phone call to LG could answer your question. I have called LG about a different question and they were very helpful.

Answer: 
This is correct; the owner’s manual does not provide instructions on how to replace the drum lamp. There is such a lamp in this unit. It uses a 15 watt, 120 volt, candelabra-base bulb. Unfortunately, being that this information has not been included in the owner’s manual, the manufacturer recommends that this be replaced by a licensed service technician. As such, we cannot provide replacement instructions for this lamp. 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....
