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....

I have a LG DLE2250 Dryer.

What Exactly Does The Anti Bacterial Setting Do? Does it super heat the air/clothing or remove moisture by extended drying time?

Answer: 
From the manual: "NSF International (formerly the National Sanitation Foundation), certifies that ANTI BACTERIAL cycle reduces 99.9% of bacteria on laundry, and none of bacteria will carry over onto the next laundry load." This is accomplished by drying at a higher temperature for a longer cycle.

what accessories can I get with the LG dryer?

I have the extra large 7 cubic foot dryer with the sensor dry. I bought it 2 years ago. Can I get a garment rack for it to dry sneakers or sweaters?

Answer: 
A garment rack is not listed as an available accessory for this dryer. The only optional accessories recommended for this unit are the Pedestal and the Stacking Kit.

Answer: 
Yes....you can reverse the dryer but not the washer. When I ordered my machine, I requested that it be reversed. But, I think in the packet, there are instructions on how to reverse the door.

Answer: 
You can. There are simple instructions in the manual. You just have to unscrew the door and mount from one side and move it to the other.
