A revolutionary spin on laundry.

LG puts a modern design spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

The quick fix

The quick fix

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.

Get wise

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.

Really dry clothes

Really dry clothes

What’s worse than pulling clothes out of the dryer and finding they’re still damp? Our Sensor Dry system measures the moisture levels during the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time, to help ensure you get dry laundry every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dryer! We have had this dryer for over 2 years and so far it has performed like a champ! It does a great job and holds a full washer load. The only complaint I have is that I have to press the "Time Dry" button 4 times to get to 20 minutes. 1 press-40 min, 2 press-50 min, 3 press-60 min, 4 press-20 min??? I would have preferred 1-15 min, 2-30 min, 3-45 min, 4-60 min.

I have a brand new dryer, shipped it to the Philippines, (220v, not 240v)., it turns on, but will not start, immediately shuts off.  Please help!

Asked by: Brick
We regret to read that you are having issues with your new LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Front Control Design and SteamFresh™ Cycle, Model # DLEY1201V. It is rated for 240V, 30 Amps. The standard voltage in the Philippines is 220 V 60Hz and the power cord that you should have for the dryer is a 30 A, 240V, UL-listed power cord with #10 AWG-minimum copper conductor and closed loop or forked terminals with upturned ends. Check that your circuit breaker is a 30 amp circuit breaker and that circuit that the outlet you're using is not connected to anything else. The dryer should be plugged into its' own dedicated wall outlet otherwise it will trip the circuit breaker which sounds like what is happening when you try to run the dryer. You may want to get an electrician to inspect your outlet and circuit for that outlet...^IFV

How to reset check filter light

Asked by: Lenny Weiss
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. According to the information in your owner’s manual, the DISPLAY panel will show CHECK FILTER when the dryer is turned on as a reminder to check the filter. It turns off when the START/PAUSE button is pressed. This is normal operation.

Our dryer is working very nicely, except an issue with the lint trap. Check filter light flashes when power is on, but it shuts off when drying. The issue is we noticed water in the drum. The hoses are clean and the trap is clean. Is this a major problem?

Just purchased this dryer! Pluged in have all lights and power just wont start! Does something have to be in it ?? Is it that smart or broke!! 

Asked by: Scott lv nv
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. If nothing happens when the POWER button is pressed, then there may be a problem with either the connection of the power cord or the power supply itself, or possibly another related component. Check the connections on the power cord first. If this does not resolve the matter, then 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

I have a 4 prong and have moved into an apartment that requires 3 prong? Is there an adapter I can buy or if I have to change the cord where can I find instructions to do it? 

Asked by: aries1573
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. We have no adapters available, nor are aware of any, to convert a 4-prong dryer cord into a 3-prong cord. Instructions on how to remove and install a power cable are listed in the owner’s manual on pages 23-26. If there is any uncertainty, it may be recommended to obtain the assistance of a professional installer or a qualified service technician.

Why does it say add clothes after it spins several times with the clothes already in it?

Asked by: Momma04
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The ADD message is typically only displayed on the WASHING MACHINE to add additional items after the sensing portion of the cycle. If this is not the case, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
