Late for the party and no time to iron your favorite outfit? The SteamFresh™ Cycle refreshes, and reduces wrinkles in up to five garments at a time with one 20-minute dryer cycle.

Wash the unwashable

You probably wish you could clean your throw pillows or children’s toys. With the SteamSanitary™ Cycle, you can. It uses steam to safely sanitize items marked as non-washable.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 493 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features I like the steam sanitary feature for wrinkles on shirts. Seems to be a reliable machine so far. July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Dryer This dryer is amazing! Dries so fast and clothes come out looking great! May 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the music when drying is complete Excellent features-drys much faster than my old machine March 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer We have owned the dryer for 2 months and so far we love the machine. Size alone is amazing and has drastically cut the time we spend on laundry these days. If you haven't used one of these new energy efficient dryers before, there is a learning curve in order to make the best use of the machine. My only disappointment is the machine started squeaking on day 2, which caused the rollers to be replaced. That type of issue should not happen this day and age and is unfortunate since it is such a nice dryer. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I <3 this washer This washer is great! Easy to use, cleans great and is so quiet. Any size load, settings for any type of load, and the ability to pause as needed. When I first purchased the washer, I couldn't stop watching it work - fascinating! March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer......quiet and smooth Great product-it really was 3 steps up from our old dryer. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dryer ever! We recently purchased this new LG model DLEX5170W and have been very pleased. It is easy to use, it will handle everything from small to large loads, and is very quiet. Best dryer we have ever had! February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features I love the capacity and all the different settings. January 6, 2015

dryer bar

Hello, I wanted to know if I can use a bounce dryer bar in my dryer. I have not used the sheets, because someone told me they would ruin the sensor.

Answer: 
It is not recommended to use a Bounce Dryer Bar in this product. The dryer bar is similar to the dryer sheets. We recommend using fabric softener during the wash cycle, as suggested in the owner’s manual, and not using any in the dryer.

On the dryer settings it has a certain number of minutes for each cycle. Does it always run through those minutes or will it stop early if clothes are dry?

Answer: 
Yes, it will stop earlier (as soon as it senses the clothes are dry) if the load is smaller or drier than the cycle allows for.
