What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer worth every penny !! I bought this new dryer about a month ago ...and it has totally changed the way we dry our clothes our old machine would take twice as long to dry our clothes and it cost us dearly in our electricity bill...overall a great dryer that with the app I can monitor my dryer by my phone for any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable product, works well I have had this for 1 year. I gave it 4 stars because it doesn't always dry all of the clothes in 1 load and I often have to re-start it but aside from that, it's reliable

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the washer Bought the dryer along side the matching washer couple of months ago. Really like how the washer has performed thus far, but have been unpleasantly disappointed by the dryer. Many times there are clothes that still feel damp after running a cycle. Wish it performed as good as it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for a better dryer I've had this dryer for a while now. It is amazing. I had my last dryer for 13 years, and never worked as good as this one does. I'm extremely happy. I especially love the dual door options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Dryer EVER After purchasing the 5680 White Dryer/Washer set for my home over a year ago, I purchased the 5780/5680 set in graphite for our summer cabin at the lake. Was this extravagent for just our summer home? Yes, yes, yes since I'm doing bedding every weekend after family and friends leave!! This dryer is beautiful,very efficient AND simply amaaaazing!! It has doubled my load size and drys in half the time of my old large capacity Maytag. The steam/sanitary options works fantastic on my oversized blankets and comforters too. Worth every penny!! You will just love the efficiency of this dryer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like my LG Washer - but I LOVE this dryer!! The dryer choice has always been: whatever matched the washer...and so it was with my new LG DLEX5780WE dryer. Well, dryers have come a long way baby! This steam technology - who would think, steam in a dryer - is amazing. Clothes come out soft and fluffy and no static cling at all. It doesn't seem like it is as tough on the clothes either, the fabric doesn't feel like it's been roasted in an oven when it comes out. I'm a woman and we don't machine dry the stuff we don't want to shrink, shrivel or turn into a rag, so don't be rash and dry every delicate thing you own in the machine - it's only good for so much. But what it does well is awesome.

Does the DLEY 1701W have PGM save?  What is that?   Does it have an East Load door?  A Duel Ststem Sensor Dry? Smart Diagnosis?  Remote Start?

Asked by: CLDB
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control SteamDryer™ with SteamFresh™, Model # DLEY1701W and Model # DLEY1701WE are different models. The DLEY1701WE has the EasyLoad™ Door. Both models have SmartDiagnosis™ and SENSOR DRY cycles that utilize LG’s unique dual sensor system to detect and compare the moisture level in clothes and in the air and adjust the drying time as needed to ensure superior results. The difference being that the DLEY1701W has a Normal and Small LOad cycle whereas the DLEX1701WE only has a Normal cycle. Both have Custom PGM which lets you save any special combination of settings that you use frequently that can be saved as a custom program. You can only save one custom prog at a time. Pressing and Holding the Custom PGM button will overwrite any previously saved custom program. Neither dryer has a remote start function...^IFV
