What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simple you don't have to think at all. No timing to set, the dryer just knows when the laundry is dry. Small load, Large Load, doesn't matter, select your options and let the machine do the rest. Effortless and convenient. The quality, efficiency, design, are top notch, and it's green too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer Love the dryer---dry's a larger wash and still has plenty of room ---leaves clothing wrinkle free and we iron less. I would like the settings to be on the bottom of the machine since they are stackable so that makes the reading for the settings very high up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive, quiet, easy to use We have only had the dryer one month but are loving it so far. It is in our new bathroom and I was a little fearful of how noisy it might be. However, our washer and dryer are actually quieter in the bathroom than they were when in the basement. It is very easy to use.

Can our use of dryer sheets in this dryer be causing a faulty "Flow Sense" error to shut the dryer off prematurely? I didn't know we weren't supposed to be using dryer sheets until I looked at this page. 

Asked by: Angela81
It is as stated in your owner's manual for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sensor Dry (Electric). Sensor dry cycles in this dryer utilize LG’s unique dual sensor system to detect and compare the moisture level in clothes and in the air and adjust the drying time as needed to ensure superior results. The dryer automatically sets the dryness level and temperature at the recommended setting for each cycle and the estimated time remaining will be shown in the display. The "Flow Sense" is something entirely different. The Flow Sense™ function featured in your dryer is an innovative sensing system that automatically detects blockages and restrictions in dryer ductwork. Keeping ductwork clean of lint buildup and free of restrictions allows clothes to dry faster and reduces energy use. If you are getting the "Flow Sense" error, don't use the dryer until you get the ductwork cleaned out cause it could lead to a fire or the dryer burning itself out...^IFV

My dryer is off but continues to run. I've removed the laundry, and now if I shut the door is still runs/rotates. Why

Asked by: Hjackson
We regret to read that your LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sensor Dry (Electric), Model # DLE3050W continues to run even when off. There are a few parts in your dryer that can cause it to continue to run even when off. It could be your door switch which is a safety feature that is an on and off type switch that prevents the dryer drum from turning when the door is opened. If the dryer continues to tumble after the door is open the problem is most likely the door switch. It could be the timer, the cool down thermostat or the cycling thermostat. In short, the dryer will need to be inspected to determine which part is malfunctioning. If you would like to schedule a repair service, you can either submit an online repair service request form at, or you can call us at (800) 243-0000 to speak to a Call Representative and get assistance in scheduling a repair service...^IFV

How do you turn the end of cycle signal back on?

I turned off the end of cycle signal by pressing the "Signal" button. I want to turn it back on, tried pressing the "Signal" button again, but it won't go back on again. How can i fix this?
Asked by: Fatpuppy1
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. The signal should be re-activated simply by pressing the SIGNAL button again. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service.

How many watts per hour does the DLE3050 use?

Asked by: PeteZ
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The electrical draw of this machine can vary slightly, depending on certain factors, such as the size of the load, the wetness of the fabrics, and which cycle is in use. This dryer averages about .25 kWh per pound in a normal cycle taking about an hour.

I never noticed clean filter flashing. Did it always do this or is there something I should be doing? The filter in front gets cleaned each time

Asked by: Ravachol
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The CLEAN FILTER is an indicator that has been designed to appear before each cycle, simply as a reminder to do so. There is no cause for alarm with this notice.

What is the total depth required to install this machine?

Our space has a depth of 32 1/2" -- will this machine fit?
Asked by: ECR4
The machine is slightly less than 30", depending on how the vent is connected might be a concern.

dryer has power but when you push start button it shuts off

also clean filter light is on
Asked by: bigun
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is normal for the CLEAN FILTER light to activate when the Power button has been pressed. This is a reminder to clear the filter before the DRY cycle begins. However, if the dryer is deactivating itself so quickly, then there may be a problem with the power supply, control panel or another related component. The unit will likely 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

Is it okay to use fabric softener sheets?

The manual doesn't specifically prohibit their use, but I read quite a bit about them coating the sensors, eventually preventing the sensor dry from working. How might one clean the dryer sensors?
Asked by: Lineprophet
The manufacturer does not recommend the use of any dryer sheets or bars with this device. Fabric softener should be added to the washing machine, in the appropriate compartment, for addition to the final cycles.
