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.

If you ever experience an issue with your LG dryer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

Answer: 
in the top left hand corner is where you pull, and the dryer opens out to the side... I will say I do miss having a dryer to open down to catch any wet clothes that may slip from my hand

No water line is needed, as there is a removable plastic water container that you add water to.

Answer: 
No! you simply add a very small amount of water( a cup or less) in a small reservoir @ the top of the dryer. It is really easy. The water evaporates during the steaming function. It really works great to remove wrinkles in clothes you might forget to take out of the dryer. Also works great to freshen up sport coats & such that really don't need to go to the dry cleaners yet.
