What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from We were excited to get this nice looking LG washer and dryer set. It does look great. But unfortunately, even with careful soap measuring and avoiding overfilling of clothes, the clothes come out of the wash still with a dirty odor, and they always come out of the dryer still damp after an hour. Also, shockingly loud during spin cycle. This was a splurge for us and we are so, so disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great price We had purchased the washing machine earlier last year , when home depot put the dryer on sale for black friday sale i figured we should purchase it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy after 1 day Just had this machine installed today and every load goes off balance. It is terrible loud.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG dryer God sacrifice - my clothes The lint trap will not stay seated down in the lint trap slot, thus catching clothes as they spin twisting my clothes into unidentifiable shapes. I am tired of paying for clothes for the dryer to eat. LG says its not their issue ... how can that be? See picture... a t-shirt from my son's football team. Used to be a rectangle, now it has an ill-shaped tail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my third set of LGs...all three are fantastic. The quick cycles and the lint control are probably the best available!!! With two dogs I need that!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rattles I am happy with my stacked washer and dryer except that the dryer outside panels rattle when the washer is spinning. It is really annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dryer is awesome Love the dryer. Not so much the washer. It washes great but after only a month it starts smelling bad. Thing is the door stays open 24/7 so this should not happen at all. I use the all fresh but still smells.

is there a diagram showing the location of the vent outlet on the dryer with dimensions?

Asked by: Willmort
Regrettably, the only diagrams that show the Exhaust Duct Outlet for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3150W is the diagram on page 9 of its owner's manual, but it does not show any dimensions. The diagram on page on page 12 (no dimensions), and the diagram on page 18 that shows how to remove the rear exhaust duct retaining screw to install the side vent kit. You can also get a better view of the exhaust duct outlet by using the navigation arrow on the left of the unit's main image on its product information page to scroll to the second image from the main image that shows the rear of the unit while it is sitting on a pedestal. Regrettably, none of these have dimensions, but it may help to know that you can only use 4-inch (10.2 cm) rigid or flexible metal ductwork inside the dryer cabinet for venting outside and that the exhaust duct must also be 4-inch (10.2 cm) rigid or flexible metal ductwork...^IFV

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
