Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient and Speedy Love the dryer for its speed and efficiency. I runs quiet and does a really nice job on drying clothes just the way you'd like them to be dried. I love the flat drying rack for sweaters. Very nicely designed and has an array of features for every drying need. I highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer This dryer is fantastic if your house is not equipped with a gas line. We had the gas equivalent in my previous house. Much more efficient but that is normal. This electric dryer is a solid second to the gas version. I would definitely spend the cash for this dryer if you don't have a gas hook up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dryer is fast This dryer is fast and clothes come out wrinkle free. I like the features and the look of my washer and dryer. We have had units for a couple of months and so far everything has been great. Washing clothes is no longer a chore. I get my laundry done super fast and don't have as much ironing now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet! Bought as a replacement for a dryer that had always given us we actually know what a properly working dryer is like. It's so super quiet that we don't even know it's on. Love that it actually dries our clothes in the anticipated time. It's our first LG...but it won't be our last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied customer This dryer is the best thing since sliced bread. It dry's clothes in half the time my other dryer did. It is easy to set the dryer for what you are drying. I like the rack that you can put shoes on. It looks great next to my matching washer.

Are these dryers Energy Star certified?

How do I make the light inside the dryer stay on?

It always goes out before I can get all of the clothes out. Same goes for my washer.
Asked by: Tracy500
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. According to page 2 of the owner’s manual, the DRUM LIGHT is supposed to be a yellow light that remains active while the door is open, and deactivates when the door is closed. If it becomes inactive before the door is closed, there may be a problem with this light, or it may have been active long enough to overheat, and have shut off for safety concerns. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

do you need water source for steam to work

Do you need a seperate water source to the dryer for the steam feature to work? Or does it use the wetness of the clothes to make it produce the steam. If a water source is needed do I have to use the steam option. I wish I could find a dryer like this with out the steam dry option. Thank you
Asked by: purdyenough
No. There is a reservoir that you will have to periodically fill. Be sure to use filtered water to reduce the amount of scale build up from regular water. Do not use distilled water (check with the Owner's Manual first). I would recommend downloading the Owner's Manual as 90% of questions will be answered there.

Is there a setting for a dry down/feather pillow (that has not been put in the washer first)?

Asked by: LexiA
I apologize, but no; there is no setting specifically for use with down/feather pillows. It is recommended to check the fabric care label on the item to see what cleaning/drying method has been suggested by the manufacturer.

Where exactly is the bottom vent located on the DLEX4070?

Please give me the center point location of the bottom vent on the DLEX4070. I have already purchased this dryer and need to cut a hole in our laundry room platform to allow the venting to egress through the bottom stand and connect to the exterior vent. Please provide at the very least measurements to bottom duct center from back of machine and righthand side as you're looking at it from the front. Also, could you include the diameter of the vent. Thanks, Walt
Asked by: Waltsb
We appreciate your interest in this dryer and its specifications. Please view the attached document that will assist with this information. Bottom venting uses the same conversion kit as side venting. Figuring the lower dimensions would be equivalent to the distance from the back to the side vent hole, and the center dimension the same as that on the back of the unit.

We appreciate your interest in this dryer. We have no way to determine how large the comforter is, or how much space it takes. This dryer is designed with a drum capacity of 7.4 cubic feet of space.
