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

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 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".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster drying time Amazed at how much faster the dryer dries clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steam in the dryer...really?? I found an exception sale price for this dryer which is the only reason I bought it. I bought it despite the the steam feature, not because of it. I couldn't imagine myself using this feature often, if at all. However having bought it I thought I should try it--of course I became hooked. It is a great way to freshen up fabric items that you don't want to run through the wash too often; curtains/drapes, throw pillows, comforter (especially from guest beds which get dusty). A 15-20 minute cycle does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and settings. I am very, very happy with my dryer. Can't believe how fast my clothes get dry. It's very quiet and efficient. Paired with my wonderful LG washer it's a pleasure to do laundry. The over all appearance of my set is wonderful as it's the first thing you see when coming in my side door which everyone seems to want to use. Great decision to buy LG!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer has great features!! Dries quick - reminds you to clean lint filter - which is in front of drum - luv it!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love controls in the front! Love the controls in the front! This dryer has loads of drying options and a huge capacity. I love being able to dry down comforters with room to spare. Two things drive me crazy about it. One is that if the dryer is even 'normally' full, when the door is opened, the clothes spill out. I wish the dryer had a taller lip on the inside drum to keep the clothes contained. I also wish the top wasn't sloped. Leaving a freshly folded stack of clothers on the dryer is a bad idea. I miss using this area as a transit spot for family members to pick up their clothes and put them away. Other than those 2 things, I highly recommend it!

I have set the timer for 55 minutes yet after 5 minutes the dryer is cooling down and ending. What am I doing wrong?

Clothes are still damp and I have switched the same brand dryer twice trying to get this right. Please help!

Is this dryer stackable?

Asked by: Baci
I apologize, but no; this model has not been designed as a stackable product. The matching washer has not been configured in such a manner as to allow other devices to be mounted to it.

Where do I plug the power cord on the dryer?

Asked by: macwitchese
This dryer has its own terminal block that must be connected to a separate 240 VAC, 60Hz, single-phase circuit, fused at 30 amperes. The circuit must be fused on both sides of the line. The power cord is not supplied with the dryer. The type of outlet, and the gauge of wire, must conform to local codes and with the instructions listed in the manual.

For the LG 7.3 cu ft Electric Dryer with Steam Cycles, what is the measurement from the bottom of the door opening to the floor?

We are trying to determine whether the door will open based on a nearby toilet.
Asked by: Bwol
Mine measures 12.5 inches. But I have done some slight leveling adjustment of the feet.

Stained dryer interior?

I was curious how do I remove blue stains from the inside of the dryer? I just recently washed a brand new sheet set (disney charactor) that was royal blue and after its been dried I notice the white finish of the dryer from the inside is blue! Help. Dryer is only a week old.
Asked by: LilyPLy
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this electric dryer. Bleeding colors generally only happens in hot water. If this occurred in the dryer, then it would suggest that the STEAM cycle may have been in use, causing the colors to run. We have no recommendations for the cleaning of the tub, except for the use of a dry cloth. Any harsh cleaners can damage the surface of the tub.

How do I obtain a clothes dryer rack to use in the DLEY1201V

I want to purchase a clothes dryer rack to use inside the DLEY1201V dryer. Please help me. Thank you.
Asked by: KT1952
I do not believe there is one yet, however, go to a store that has a few LG dryers, and try a rack from a different model in your model to see if it works. We did this, and, yes, another rack from a different model did fit the DLY12091V dryer. I feel confident that LG will soon provide one for this model also, as this is a brand new model and has not been out that long.
