What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!! I bought the dryer almost a month ago and love it.
Date published: 2016-08-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Explanation of Steam Function non-existent No cogent explanation in manual. I tried the steam function but am using trial and error to determine the parameters for this feature. LG marketing touts steam as a huge advantage but the implementation is flawed due to lack of explanation.Seems like a good product otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well-built and poor user controls Why does a dryer of this price caliber claim in the owner's manual to have an "...illuminated control panel" (p. 11) when it doesn't? It is almost impossible to read and to set the functions without a flashlight! If LG wanted to go cheap they could have simply used a light panel with dark labels! The fact that a later model has an LED display is proof that this model is poorly designed, and the online LG image misrepresents the display as clearly readable. IT IS NOT! I rate this machine "average" because in spite of this major user shortcoming it seems to be well built, easy to install, runs smoothly and does a fine job...sad that LG skimped on the most important user aspect of the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great product I got this for Christmas. While that might not seem like a great present when it cuts the number of laundry loads in half, uses less water and dries faster without needing to dry on a hot setting it is the best Christmas ever. Absolutely love it. Now I don't mind doing laundry. And we are using way less detergent and shout to get the stains out of our boys clothes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great works great so far (6 months) handles the clothes for our family of 6 children with one on the way with ease. only thing missing is a maid to keep it running while we homeschool the children :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of features - doesn't dry I just contacted support regarding this dryer. It was leaving lots of loads damp. We did troubleshooting and nothing was wrong. I was then told to use Time Dry for mixed loads. Basically, the message was that the sensor is over sensitive and senses dry items in mixed loads, and shuts the cycle down. All these extra sensors, and the dryer is dumb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dryer ever! It is huge and does a superb job. After washing all my towels in our LG washer, the dryer dries them all in under an hour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer Great results. One improvement would be to light the menu customization titles. Hard to see in my laundry room.

Does the water for the true steam have to be distilled?

Asked by: Rocky7070
No; distilled water will not perform properly in any of our steam appliances. It is recommended to use plain tap water.

I set my dryer at the normal dry setting and I noticed that when it got down to 1 minute it stayed there for well over 8 minutes. At the end I just stopped t myself. I've only had it for one day and the manual doesn't state this problem. 

Asked by: bcac
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. During the regular sense dry cycle, the dryer is designed to operate based on the moisture levels measured by the sensors near the lint filter. If there is a high humidity level, the dryer can adjust and/or extend the drying time if necessary. However, it can also add extra time if the sensors are clogged. Check these sensor strips to be certain they are clear of any obstructions. If this matter continues, the the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at
