What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Looks and sounds great....first load in process for drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've now used my new dryer 3 times and I love it! I was given a very nice front load set of a washer and dryer about a month ago, but the dryer was broken. I checked out Consumer Reports recommendations for dryers and the dryer I bought was listed as their Best Buy for electric dryers. So glad I checked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New LG Front Loader Washer I owned a previous LG Front Loader, had it 10 years. Loved it. No complaints. Purchased a new one recently. Noticed difference in door design. Instead of dome out window design, my new one has the window going inward that creates a "catch" area for water. Plus the window is "wetter" after washer stops. When I open the door, water drips down the front of washer getting on floor. This never happened with my previous one. Also the rubber area that is around inside the washer that the door butts up to has water that remains in it. Don't know if this only happens with my washer or others. Is this a defect that needs to be fixed?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good. we have other LG products i.e. a washer and refrigerator. however I purchased it online and I am very unhappy with my Sears experience

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design This dryer is horrible! The lint catcher is inside the door and our clothes constantly get caught in it - I had a hole in a pair of jeans, a shirt got torn on the bottom, numerous underwear has been ruined and on and on and on. Don't buy this dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clothes Dryer Dryer works best when set at more dry. Regular dry seems to dry slightly damp.
Date published: 2017-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Works great on many of the different settings , Still waiting to use the other sets. The only set back with the washer is that is sets to close to the floor, if you have back problems, bending down that far can be a problem for some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and great options Dries clothes fast and both washer and dryer are very quiet! Lots of features! And great music at the end! I am still learning on what level to set so clothes dry without turner dryer back on! I use to have a sensor load setting on my last dryer that worked nice! But have been very happy with product so far!

What type of outlet does this dryer need?

Depending on whether your building codes allow a 3 -wire connection or 4-wire connection, the LG 7.4 cu. ft.

How much energy does the "energy saver" program option conserve, compared to a normal cycle without energy saver enabled? This option extends the drying time and begins air dry only, but I'd like to know how much energy this tradeoff saves.

Asked by: BostonEric
The Energy Saver option for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W is only available in the Cotton/Normal cycle and is turned off by default in this cycle. Energy Star Qualified dryers use about 20% less energy than conventional models. It has an Estimated Annual Energy use of 607 kWh/yr based on its Combined Energy Factor and an annual usage of 283 cycles per year as referenced by the U.S. Department of Energy test procedure. The actual energy consumption will vary according to your usage patterns, how often you run the dryer, what cycle you select and the load size. Regrettably, none of the test results indicate how much energy the option will conserve since the calculation will depend on your utility rates and several other external factors...^IFV

Does it take longer to dry clothes with electric vs gas? What is estimated cost of energy per year with electric

Asked by: Mossy
Gas and Electric Dryers are designed to take about the same time in drying your clothes so it becomes more a question about which would cost less to run and that will depend on your utility rates for gas or electricity. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W has an Estimated Annual Energy Use of 607 kWh/yr based on the Combined Energy Factor and an annual usage of 283 cycles per year as referenced by the U.S. Department of Energy test procedure.

I have read elsewhere that I should not use dryer sheets with this dryer because they interfere with the moisture sensor. Is this true?  I do not see this mentioned in the manual or the warranty.  Please advise.

Asked by: AnnieZ
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. If a dryer sheet is used, the fibers can become detached and will stick and melt to the sensor strips. Fabric softener should be used from the appropriate dispenser cup in the washing machine.
