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.

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 4.8 out of 5 by 220 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Washer and Dryer 1201 Dryer is great. The washer review I need to write about. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet & Fast This dryer holds a lot of clothes and runs so quiet you have to be almost next to it before you can hear it running. It takes less than half the time to dry my clothes and they come out perfect. I love the steam option to quickly remove wrinkles of anything left too long in the dryer or that may have accidently fallen. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazingly Quiet and Quick I choose this dryer after researching it and I'm greatly satisfied with it. I was amazed at how fast it dries the clothes and I love the steam fresh feature it has helped me with tablecloth's that have been folded to long and with some items of clothing. I only wish you could put the time you want if you use time dry instead of the few progammed options. As I have a couple of items that you are supposed to put in the dryer for 15 minutes then take them out and hang them. so now I use a timer to do them. Also I have a rubber basket to put the clothes in after they are dried to take in another room to fold and I always stored it on the dryer since it is in a closet. But now I am not able to do it as I noticed some scratchs on the dryer finish and finally figured out it was from the basket. For an empty rubber basket to do that to a finish it appears that you have to be very carefull. Luckily the scratchs were not real noticeable until I had the light on in the closet. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The washer and dryer, are an awesome pair! Love the dryer, the clothes are never over dried. I don't have to decide how many minutes it will take, the dryer does it perfectly! The lint filter is easy to clean, and put back. It looks great in the laundry room, and it is quiet! Thanks LG! August 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by can't hear buzzer I cannot hear the music when the dryer stops and I go in and the clothes aren't dry and now they are all wrinkled. I even had the panel replaced and still can't hear it unless I am in the laundry room. So I have to set the timer on my stove for about the same time as the dryer runs. This is just wrong. They should have volume control. July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product. What do you need in a dryer? To dry the clothes. However, this dryer makes laundry fun. It has the basics. It has the large drying capacity. It has the wonderful LARGE door lint filter. But the best-it can customize anything you want to include a dry cleaner freshness for clothes in a hurry. Love it. A must have for busy people. Thanks LG! May 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Dryer Love the front controls and how easy it is to use. Love the steam dry option. Very efficient and effective. I like that the dryer can determine when the clothes are dry and turns off on its own to save electricity. July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer This dryer is a great design. It dries quickly and the steam feature is a bonus. ! love my new laundry! It is large for a large household. And yes I do appreciate the little tune. July 11, 2014

It is hooked up to the same water line as your washer. You may have to purchase a Y connector for the hose.

How do you replace a broken light inside of dryer?

When we received the dryer the light inside didn't work and was broken in pieces. We cannot remove it to get it replaced. How is it done? No directions in manual.
