Answer: 
I asked LG the same question via chat before we bought it and was told that it cannot be vented conventionally. The dryer has a grill about an inch high on the front side that runs the entire width of the dryer, at the very bottom of the machine; this is where the heat comes out. You'll feel the hot air coming out if you stand in front of it. Our house is always cold, so this is heat that does not go to waste. If you live in a hot climate, you might not like this feature, and you might want a ceiling exhaust fan to flow the hot air to the outside.

Planning to install this under counter with a cabinet door. How much clearance (for circulation?) do you need on top, sides, font and back?

Also, if we go with the permanent drain option, can the drain be installed towards the top of the dryer (similar to the matching washer), in other words, does it pump the condensed water up and out, or will it need to use gravity to drain?

Stacking it with WM1355HW. Again, not clear if stacking kit is included with the dryer or must be purchased separately.

Answer: 
Hi Mary,

I have this Dryer and I love it. It works great. To answer your question the stacking kit comes with the dryer you do not have to buy a seperate stacking kit. Note they do not make a pedestal for these unit which is a shame. I hope i answer your question.
