It dries quickly and love that the door opens 2 ways it makes loading easy, love the dry rack and steam feature haven't had any issues since I bought it. you must keep the lint cleaned out.But I don't have any problem with that. Would highly recommend it to anyone . It's really quiet also. Does everything I expected and more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I want my old washer back! I have had this washer for a year now and I absolutely hate it. I don't see how they think that these new machines get things clean. I have had to rewash the same load multiple times to try and get it clean. The spin cycle just winds it all up and you get all the dirt and lint stuck in all the creases. I've wanted to soak some items and how can you soak it when it's not immersed in the water, only 1/2 of it? If you try and stop it while it's full to sit it just empties on you. I am short and also have a hard time getting items out of it and now can't reach the cabinets above since they are higher and stick out farther. We are planning to move and I plan on leaving this washer and dryer with the house and find an old style machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy After a month or 2 learning curve this dryer has plenty of helpful features. It looks good it doesn't over dry when set on the sensor modes and the steam fresh option is nice to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Performer I purchased the dryer slightly more than a month ago. It has been every bit as good as I have come to expect from LG quality. This is the 6th different LG product I have purchased. They have yet to deliver anything but superior performance. Keep up the quality performance!

After my clothes is dried I take them out and come back and the dryer has water condensation standing in it   I have not put any water in the steamer 

Asked by: Klovensc
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this television. How much water is being found in the dryer drum? It is recommended to check the lint filter and the exhaust duct for any obstructions that might allow the moisture to run back into the machine. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

Model: DLEX5780WE does it require a hose for steam to work?

The guys that installed it saw there was room to put water in it manually so they didn't attach a hose for the steam part. Just checking that this is ok?
Asked by: JROG
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. There is no water line or hose by which a water supply might be connected. The Steam Feeder must be filled manually each this this function is to be used. This information is listed on page 39 of your owner’s manual.

Is LG dryer DLEX5780WE being discontinued?

Is it being discontinued because of design flaws which is what Best Buy has told be as the reason they can not deliver this item which I placed an order for on February 15, 2015, when it was on sale along with a matching washing machine

If this dryer is rated so high why is it being discontinued?

Asked by: rccong


Asked by: pear

Is the depth of the electric version (DLEX5780*E) less than the depth of the gas version (DLGX5781*E)?

An installer told me that the depth of the electric version (DLEX5780*E) is less than the depth of the gas version (DLGX5781*E). The two models share an owner's manual, which provides measurements in its Installation section, but does not make a distinction between the two models.
Asked by: Jage

Can this be used as a true hamper door which lays flat so I can fold clothes on it?
