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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 4 yr old daughter is able to do the Laundry!!!! This machine is so easy, a 4 yr old can operate it, unassisted! My daughter is always wanting to help out my wife with the household chores. She is able to do so with ease, because of the easy operations of this LG dryer! She can dry or steam our clothes and have them ready for us with no problems!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died just over a year I didn't expect to have to get the dryer serviced just when the warranty went out. It died and I had it for just over a year. I will never buy another LG dryer again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from First time - died! Very first time this dryer was used, it worked for a minute then quit. No power so the diagnostic app would not work. Called support. They said to switch off the breaker for 5 seconds. It came back on, worked for a few seconds, went off again. Never used an LG product before, but took a chance on this because of high ratings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You Better Be Tall I love the new washer overall results, but the lack of a raised back control panel means nothing covers the faucet water connections. My wife hates the washer because she is too short to reach the cloths in the bottom of the tub. I can just reach them and I'm 5'-9".

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?

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.

Install new dryer and aske you about hose conect 

Asked by: Ammar
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The short hose provided, should be connected directly to the COLD water tap. The Y-connector should be connected to this hose. One branch should connect to the COLD water line to your washing machine. The other branch should connect to the longer hose provided, which in turn connects to the Water Inlet Valve located near the lower right side of the back of the cabinet. This information can be reviewed on page 19 of your owner’s manual.
