What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 years and 5 service calls later...now junk Works great when it works; but has now been serviced 5 times, twice because it said to "empty water container" yet I the hose connected directly to a drain. The other 3 times, and what finally ended this was water leaking out of the bottom of the dryer. Thank goodness I had warranty and Lowe's replaced the drain pump once, but problem is still happening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Dryer I don't understand why people are rating this dryer at 4 stars when it takes them 2 hours to dry one load. This dryer cannot dry an entire load, we have had to break our washing loads into very small batches and even then it takes forever to dry. 3 hours to dry 3 towels, 1.5 hours to dry 1 fitted sheet and 2 pillow cases (not even the entire sheet set)... it's ridiculous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our condo Just love this dryer. Plays a cute tune when it is finished drying. Clothes smell really good and are fluffy, and I didn't even use fabric softener. (Does take longer to dry than a regular dryer). I've owned other brands, but this LG is my favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looks, features and quality This dryer came highly recommended as part of a combo set with the washer. It looks and works great. The features are easy to access and are very reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really good dryer While it can take a while, it is a really good dryer. I have it stacked on the washer and it is great for a small apartment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Dryer I like this dryer very much. It works very well, is a good size for apartment living and is very quiet while operating. I've had it for over a month now and purchased it with the matching stackable washer #1377. My only issue is that the drying cycles tend to be quite long and there isn't an option for setting a specific amount of time for a cycle (at least not that I've learned of...it's possible such an option exists). Still, overall, it's a very good machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice I like the size and features, but it does take a long time to dry clothes and I have the hose to drain the water. I would like to see the temperature settings available on all cycles instead of preset. It takes 2 hours to dry a cotton cycle that is very long. The no vent system is good stops dust from accumulating behind the dryer. I think lg should send a dvd with washer and dryer and show how to use them instead of having to read some many pages. Show tips and shortcuts.

Purchased this dryer and matching washer. Purchased a pedestal for the matching washer but cannot find one for the dryer. Considered purchasing a second pedestal for the washer, however, the dryer will not fit on the washer pedestal. Is one available?

Asked by: Jason W
I apologize, but no; this dryer has not been designed for compatibility with any pedestals from the manufacturer.

My dryer is set up to a drain but water still ends up in the reservoir and there have been leaks. Should there ever be water in the reservoir if you have a drain and hose??? 

Asked by: Tknyc
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this compact dryer. If the external drain is set up properly, then there should be no access for water to reach the reservoir. According to the instructions on page 21 of your owner’s manual, the internal hose is disconnected from that which runs to the reservoir, and that line is connected to your drain hose.

Stacking kit not included. Which one should I buy?

I just purchased this Dryer (DLEC855W) from a Sears Outlet store along with a washing machine (WM1377HW). The stacking kit was not included, and I was told that I would need to purchase one. It appears as though they come in multiple sizes. Which one should I purchase? Are there any other items I need in order to stack the two units?

Is this unit wall-mountable?

Is this unit wall-mountable? If so, what wall mounting kit should I get?
Asked by: sergeyboyz
No, cannot mount it to the wall, but it is stackable on top of the washer (which the mounting kit is included with the dryer).

Why is there water leaking from the dryer?

Hello, After I run the dryer there is a pool of water on the floor beneath the dryer. What is the issue here?

Why does the timer sometimes get stuck at 11 minutes?

I have a fairly new DLEC855 (still under warranty).

Where can I purchase the Stackable Kit?

I have decided to stack my washer and dryer, but for the life of me cannot find a stack-able kit to buy for the DLEC855W dryer and WM1377HW washer. Where can I find this?
Asked by: Hmont
To stack the LG Dryer to this washing machine, the stacking kit included with the dryer must be used. For kit instructions, refer to the dryer’s owner’s manual, or the instruction booklet provided with the stacking kit. If this is not present any longer, then it would need to be obtained again. Accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at http://www.mcmelectronics.com/content/en-US/forms/lg_parts. The part number for the Stacking Kit is 5001EL2001H.
