To hook up the hose for the steam, do I first have to remove the plastic plug in the dryer before connecting the hose to the cold water faucet?

We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The installation instructions make no mention of a plastic plug being removed. It is recommended to check the location of this plug. If it causes obstruction to inbound water flow, then it is recommended to have it removed.

The delivery man from Sears told me to not use dryer softener sheets with this dryer. Is that accurate? Thank you.

Asked by: RobynL
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. Fabric softener and dryer sheets should not be used with this dryer. For LG Laundry machines, the fabric softener is supposed to be run in the washing machine. Improper operations can result in poor cleaning performance.

My dryer will not heat up amd when I set a time for it, it stops short of the cycle. When I run the dryer the drying light flashes and the cooling light stays on is that normal?

Asked by: Brokedryer
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is not normal for the COOLING light to stay on constantly. Check the filter and the exhaust duct to make sure all air flow is unobstructed. Otherwise, the machine will 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.
