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

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 Awesome! The time is dead on when drying clothes. It is fast and so few wrinkles. Quiet

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".

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!!!!

I used the steamfresh on one dry garment. After a few minutes there was a good amount of standing water in the dryer and the garment was soaked.

Is this normal?
Asked by: racerx26
I chose not to install the steam feature to my dryer due to hearing stuff like this. In fact, all one has to do to steam wrinkles out is throw in a clean wash cloth that has been dampened and put on a drying cycle you choose.

Is there an optional pedistal for the DLEY1201W?

If not, which of the older pedestals will fit?
Asked by: LilZitch
I apologize, but no; this dryer and the top load washer designed to match it, were neither designed for compatibility with any of the pedestals.

What setting is best?

I am having trouble finding the right setting for most of my loads, 5 minutes after starting a load the clean filter light goes off and the dryer stops. The filter is clean. I have tried most of the settings. Please help...
Asked by: Debbz
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. If the filter is clear, and the CLEAN FILTER light is coming on, then it would be recommended to check the ventilation duct on the back of the machine. If this does not resolve the matter, then the dryer 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

Will a side venting kit allow this dryer to be installed in a 31" deep laundry closet?

I recognize that the depth of the product is 28.275" and that 5" is recommended for back venting, but I only have 31" of depth to work with! There will be 5" left over on the side of the dryer, though. Would a side venting kit make the difference for this to fit?
Asked by: MaryMJJ
I don't think it will fit. The hole is in the back and you would still need clearance to elbow it to the side.

What does "Cooling" mean?

Under the Flow Sensor panel, there is an indicator called "Cooling". What does that mean?
Asked by: leemc
It just means that it is running awhile without the heat in order to cool down the clothes.
