What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large Capacity, Quick Drying We bought this dryer to match the washer we bought a few months ago. The larger capacity seems to help the clothes dry quicker. I just wish you could change the chime at the end of the cycle (it's the same as the washer so you can't tell which one just finished). Also, it would be nice if it had more sound insulation (you can hear the snaps and zippers banging on the drum more than our old dryer).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Dryer We bought this dryer 4 months ago and couldn't be more pleased. It is quiet and efficient with multiple functions for whatever drying need you might have. When you need it, the steam function is easy to use and does a great job on getting wrinkles out of your clothes. For those of us who tend to forget and leave clothes in the dryer well after the drying cycle has finished, the wrinkle care function is a lifesaver. Just can't say enough about this dryer....highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, very good product It's a nice system and high energy efficient. It gives some music tone when it finishes the drying. The machine is quiet; the functions are easy to use; though they look intimidated at first glance...so many buttons to press.

I'm here with a repairman who can't open the top up to service.  Any suggestion?

Asked by: Dave t
You need to check that this repairman working on your LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large High Efficiency SteamDryer™ w/ SteamSanitary™, Model # DLEX5680V is an LG Authorized repairman, he should access to the service manual for the dryer or should be trained in how to repair LG dryers. If he is not an LG Authorized Service Technician then regrettably, he will not be able to get a service manual and there is not much else that we can suggest...^IFV

im trying to locate the dryer vent on the rear of your dlex5680 model? how can I access the manual for this.

Asked by: joromey
You can visit the LG site [http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-DLEX5680W] and download an print out a PDF copy of the owner's manual for the LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large High Efficiency SteamDryer™ w/ SteamSanitary™, Model # DLEX5680W from there. The location of the dryer vent on this unit is easy to find in the rear of the unit. When you visit the page for this unit on the company site, you can use the left/right cursors on the main image right under the heading for the unit to scroll to the last image that shows the back of the dryer and right in the middle of the unit at the bottom is a large circular hole which is where the dryer duct connects...^IFV

DOES DRYER HAVE A MOISTURE SENSOR

DOES DRYER HAVE A MOISTURE SENSOR so it will not over dry and shrink clothes. If this model does not have it what model does in this size.
