What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy and water saver! I bought my LG washer and dryer in December of 2016. If I had realized just how much my water and electric bill was going to be reduced I would have bought them 4 years before that! Honestly the savings that I had on my water, sewage and electric bills in the first five months of using them paid for the appliances. I couldn't be happier. They have great features and are easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my New Dryer! We remodeled a laundry closet into a beautiful laundry room with new stackable LG Washer & Dryer. This allowed us to organize space to sort and stack. Doing laundry is now a much more pleasant time. Recently we experienced some flooding from Irma, most of my son's clothes were soaked. With my set doing his 6 loads of laundry were a breeze. I also am in love with the anti wrinkle button. A few minutes and everything there is fresh and ready to be hung. The large capacity allows everything to tumble and dry thoroughly. Quilts, small rugs and jeans are all easy to dry. I am so happy we bought this LG product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dryer with fabulous options! So I've had this dryer for approximately a year and it has been great so far. It's quick to dry and relatively quiet. The options that are provided via the push button and turn-knob menu are incredible. Low and ultra low setting, various dry times, type of material, even 'finished' tone (which I love the little tune) volume can be changed. All that without even mentioning the tag-on ability for download/uploaded cycles. This dryer was a good purchase and it looks nice too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd LG Dryer - Love it This is my second set of LG washer and dryer. Not that my other set went bad; I moved to a house that has washer and dryer upstairs and down stairs. Since I bought my first LG in 2008 and have absolutely no problems, I did not even look at other brands when I bought my second set. They are stylish and wash and dry my clothes perfectly.

What are the maximum temperatures for the different heat settings? In other words, how hot does the dryer get when it's set on high, medium and low? Neither the spec sheet nor the manual list the temperatures for the various het settings.

Asked by: jcs124
The temperature inside the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W will range from about 125°F to approximately 135°F. Low heat will average around the 120-125°F range, while medium heat will average in the 130-140°F range and high heat approximately 140-155°F. However, the size of the load being dried, the amount of moisture in your clothing and the evaporation of water from your clothing can affect the temperature or reduce the internal temperature. Lint accumulation can block the flow of air which in turn can affect the temperature. As a reference, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states that an adult can suffer third-degree burns after five minutes if his skin is exposed to hot tap water at 120°F. For safety reasons, in most current dryers, the internal temperature has been reduced to a range of 125°F to 135°F across the cycles to make sure that the dryer cannot cause harm as you are interrupting a cycle or unloading clothes after drying is complete...^IFV

My house is 110 v, and how is this 24v product?...

Asked by: zest00
You may want to contact an electrician for a more detailed explanation on this, but most US/North American homes have split phase where the power coming into the home is 240V with a center tap which gives 120 V from the center tap (called Neutral) to either leg of the 240V. The two legs are out of phase by 180 when referenced to neutral. When the two legs are utilized, between them they develop the full 240V that came into the house. That’s how higher power appliances like the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W, Electric Range Ovens, and Electric Dryers work...^IFV

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.
