What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from work horse for family of 9 We bought our lg dryer several years ago. We bought the washer and dryer matching set with the pedestals. We have a family of 9 and only recently has the dryer begun to have issues. The issues we have are because of the lint screen design allowing dryer sheets to end up in the blower. I've taken it apart and fixed it 3 times even after we stopped using dryer sheets. Honestly i'm not mad considering we've had these for years and do laundry daily to keep up with our large family. I'm buying another dryer and it will be from LG. Our washer model is WM2487HRMA and dryer is DLEX7177RM

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good product I wasn't much of a fan for this dryer but I got it since it goes with my washer. Overall it dies it's job. But they are better models. It takes longer time to dry but it gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer Have not used the steam yet but dryer works great so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dryer Ever Bought the DLEX3070W steam dryer along with companion steam washer WM3370HWA originally intending to stack. But when I saw the SideKick pedestal mini washer I decided to put the dryer on a pedestal and purchase the SideKick. This dryer is very large capacity and dries very quickly with many options - but is so easy to use. It's quiet while operating and with the steam feature and optional dryer rack I'm very happy with my decision. This dryer is perhaps the BEST dryer I've ever used in the past 30 years and I've owned many high-end appliances. Don't hesitate if you're on the fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great dryer We bought this dryer in February to replace one that was almost 20 year old. Can't believe all the bells & whistles. I didn't think we'd use the steam feature, but now so glad it has it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy about my dryer! Love the cycles. They are intuitive and work well for each tyoe of laundry. My husband hates dried clothes because he swears they make his clothes shrink, but no longer does he complain! His clothes come out perfect and barely need ironing. I used the steam feature on Sunday with my favorite corduroy shirt that needed a touchup. Came out beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate drying - easy to use Old dryer died with wet clothes in it - this dryer is such a step up and does a wonderful job especially when I use the wrinkle free setting - big help if I get busy and forget to watch when the dryer shuts off!!

Asked by: kasmi
HI Kasmi, we regret to read that you're not able to dry Bulky Items in your LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity SteamDryer™ (Electric), Model # DLEX3070W. Although 7.3 cubic feet is a large capacity, keep in mind that both pillows and quilts when wet can be heavy. You specifically mention that the dryer runs for as few minutes then turns off for these type of items, if it's not happening with other items then you may just need to make your drying loads smaller and lighter. Check the display for any error codes that may indicate if there is a problem. If not, hopefully lessening the load helps resolve the issue...^IFV

ON the display there are two columns of lights

they range from High to Low/off - what do the mean. They are no explained in the manual.
Asked by: fgnmdsvgvsdvs
I believe you are referring to the temperature setting?= TEMP CONTROL Dry level= for the sensor to decide how long to dry TIME DRY= manual modification of drying time (only non-sensor dry options)

What is the wattage of the electric dryer: DLEX3070?

I want to estimate annual energy use.
Asked by: ttownsend46
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The wattage used will be directly affected by the power cord installed. If the unit is connected at 208V, the device will run at about 4,350 watts. When connected at 240V, it will be closer to 5,650 watts. These values are approximate and can vary according to the age and usage of the device.

Exact location of duct on back of dryer

I am looking for a picture (or drawing) showing the exact location of the duct on the back of the dryer. Thank you. This is for the LG Electronics 7.3 cu. ft. Extra Large Capacity Electric Steam Dryer
Asked by: Lotan
Hello Lotan, You can see a diagram of the back of the dryer in question showing you where the duct is located on the unit by downloading the free user manual from the LG site or when you watch the Video tutorial on how to maintain your unit. You can type the model number of the unit into the search field on the site and when the unit page comes up, click on the product support tab and that will bring up a page with the manuals & documents link under the Downloads heading. Scrolling further down on that page will bring you to the Video tutorials and you van see where the duct is located from the maintenance video.

Is this unit suitable for commercial use?

Asked by: Studios
I just got one of these under three months ago and it is already broken. Our house hold is only 2 people and we clean it monthly. I would say no for commercial use.
