What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet & efficient I've had this dryer for a couple of months and love it. It is quiet and dries clothes quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my large capacity dryer I bought my dryer as part of the set with my front load washer. They work wonderful together. The dryer can handle large loads and dry them in half the time my old dryer did. I continually tell my husband how happy I am with my washer and dryer. It has made my laundry chores easy and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and functional! We bought this about 2 months ago and have been very satisfied thus far. The dryer is stylish and functional. We like the array of features and are very pleased with the performance! Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Dryer we have ever owned!!! I would give this 5 stars if it did a better job at sensing the moisture level in our clothes. I have to manually set the dryer to extra dry in order to make everything dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It will dry a large load of towels.... WOOT WOOT!! I purchased this dryer along with the matching washer. I am really impressed and haven't quite figured out all the features because it has so many, but it actually will dry a large load of towels. Which is important to me since we go through a lot of towels in a week...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features at a great price I really enjoy and love my new LG dryer. Switching from just a basic dryer to this one was such a great experience. This one has so many new features and I really enjoy the steam feature and quick drying times thanks to the LG Washer I have as well as this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dryer works well, but the pedestal doesn't match I bought the whole suite to replace my 10 year old LG suite. The WM5000HVA washer matches the WD100CV Side Kick. The DLEX5000V dryer matches the WM5000HVA washer perfectly, but this WDP4V pedestal is ridiculous. I've attached a picture to show. It's completely flat at the bottom front where the Side Kick is curved. The corners don't match up with the dryer. I'm very disappointed and the customer service basically said it's a universal pedestal so this is how it's supposed to be.

Your site list in specification for 7.4 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboSteam™ Electric Dryer w/ On-Door Control Panel DLEX5000V Graphite Steel Power source as 110v this is not correct for a electric dryer correct

Asked by: xoxoirv
Thank you for your astute observation on the listing for the power requirements for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboSteam™ Electric Dryer w/ On-Door Control Panel, Model # DLEX5000V. The power requirement is often listed as 120V, 15 Amps (Gas) / 240V, 30 Amps (Electric) and for some reason the full listing got truncated. We will have that corrected. Thank you for pointing that out...^IFV
